I don't think this has been posted here before but I'm assuming some of you have already seen it. Regardless, I thought I'd share this anyway. This dance is pure awesome, and I cannot stop watching. Dude is a stud.

Also, he has said many times he got the dance from some rapper believe. Still, it is the John Wall dance in my mind.

on the KY side of Cincinnati and a UK bball fan (Michigan alum, though so obvious loyalty there).

Wall is insane. Pretty sure Calipari is doing something illegal, but in Kentucky, UK basketball is all that matters. If some/any of those guys come back next year, they'll be nasty again.

While I think the dance is a little ridiculous, if this was a Michigan player I would love it. I'm sure Demar will come up with something crazy next season in the no fly zone.

I realize this wasn't an intro for an actual regular season game, but could you imagine Crisler Arena doing something like this? Their facilities are in another league compared to ours. Let's hope all the desperately needed renovations to Crisler actually come to fruition.

I like how Calipari has floated his name out for the New Jersey Nets job so quickly after joining Kentucky. He has a history of leaving just before the NCAA comes down on his teams. John Wall is amazing, but I agree with "pz," something sketchy is bound to be going on.

Calling a guy a stud is pretty much saying that you are gay. Not that there is anything wrong with that, but I thought you should know. Plus I watched it again and don't see this "dance" that you're referring to.

Which means that 12,836 sports journalists across the country, including every ESPN and FOX sports reporter, 90% of all NFL players, holder of every WBA/WBC title belt, and 75% of all MMA fighters are gay, since calling a great athlete a "stud" has been mainstream language for at least 30 years. But go ahead, if you're so nervous in your sexuality that you need to declare that using that word is gay, have at it, big guy.

I might be off base on this but I think I read something that the dance originated with someone from Louisville... so when he did it, it was kind of a burn towards the cards.

still pretty awesome though.

Well if you take out the crypt walk looking thing and just leave the flex stuff then it's stupid. When did dancing constitute all upper body? I guess you don't understand the concept of what dancing really is. I guess someone could win a dance competition only user their upper body. Gotcha

John Wall did an interview on ESPN where he said he adapted the move from a Louisville rapper. The origin of the dance move is from Kenzo's "Do the shizz." Copied here for your viewing pleasure. They do the move a few times in the video, but it is clearest around 3:02
