Ex-Cat John Wall ready for added scrutiny that signing a max contract would bring

Should John Wall and the Wizards agree on the contract, he would join former MVP Derrick Rose and All-Stars Chris Paul, Deron Williams and Russell Westbrook as the only NBA point guards with maximum-salaried deals, even though Wall has yet to reach an all-star game, make a playoff appearance or win at least 30 games in any season. But he is prepared for the level of scrutiny that will likely trump anything he has faced as a top high school prospect, a standout college player at Kentucky and the No. 1 pick in the 2010 NBA Draft.
