When leadership matters – Emeka Okafor confronts John Wall

Wall had hit the bottom of one of his worst career slumps during a late February loss to Detroit and didn’t respond well to getting benched after committing five turnovers in the first quarter of the 96-95 loss. He publicly criticized his teammates for not catching his passes, and continued to pout and complain in the locker room about sitting most of the fourth quarter.
