Make sure to check out John Wall's new adidas commercial with the tagline "#QuickAintFair" which features Wall with Blazers rookie Damian Lillard and Sixers All-Star Jrue Holiday.  The new campaign is for adidas' new Crazy Quick line of sneakers.  It's not surprising that adidas, who Wall just joined after spending his first 2.5 years in the league with Reebok, would be featured in an ad campaign with quick in the tagline.  I've watched all the guards in the league this season and there are certainly some quick ones, but I will put John Wall at the top of the list for the quickest guard in the league.  You can play semantics and argue if he's the fastest or the quickest, but I don't think there is anyone in the league who can go from one end of the court to the other quicker than John Wall.  

Another interesting fact about this commercial... Wall is the youngest of the 3 guards featured.  Even though Wall is now a 3-year veteran of the NBA and Lillard is a rookie, Wall is actually about two months younger than Lillard.  Sometimes people forget that Wall is only 22 and has such a bright future ahead of him.
