John Wall posts heartfelt message to BBN

As the 'it' recruit in the 2009 class and the crown jewel of John Calipari's first class in Lexington, John Wall ushered in a new era of Kentucky basketball.

Along with the hiring of Calipari, Wall helped jettison the Wildcats back into the collective consciousness of college basketball.

So, despite only being on campus for less than a year, Wall has one of the most beloved players ever to don the blue and white.

Back in Lexington last weekend, Wall received a resounding ovation when he took the stage at Big Blue Madness in Rupp Arena Friday night, seven years after his famous dance at the event in 2009 first set the fanbase ablaze.

Wall took the court in Rupp Arena once again Saturday in the Washington Wizards' 124-119 loss to the Sacramento Kings and afterward, he posted a heartfelt message to the Big Blue Nation.
