People Think John Wall Was Throwing Up Gang Signs Last Night (Video)
I honestly couldn’t tell the difference between gang signs and sign language, so I promise to keep my opinion and thoughts out of this one.
Some folks are thinking that John Wall was throwing up gang signs last night during Game 5 of the Wizards-Hawks series. He was certainly doing something with his fingers, but Doug Christie used to make those really weird signs to his wife during the game, and that was pretty much the opposite of a gang sign. So I can’t say what the intent of John Wall was, but judging by the comments from several Redditors, assuming these were in fact gang signs is not all that far-fetched.
I don’t know why John Wall would be flashing gang signs during a game. Does he need to communicate with them RIGHT THEN AND THERE? Couldn’t it wait? Also, I don’t know why he’d be running with a gang crowd, but it’s not completely ridiculous to think that athletes hang out with violent criminals. And it’s not like it’s the first time Wall has done it either:
People seem convinced that these were Blood signs, so they Crypts should really look elsewhere for their point guard. Devin Harris, maybe?
