John Wallace is a retired Syracuse basketball player and professional NBA player. In 1996, John was drafted in the first round by the NY Knicks. John played seven seasons in the NBA, with the NY Knicks, Toronto Raptors, Detroit Pistons, Phoenix Suns and the Miami Heat. As a Knick, John played in 22 of the season’s first 24 games and averaged 5.5 ppg and 3.0 rpg in that stretch, which included double digit scoring in each of the season’s first five games. In January, he played in all of the team’s 16 games, recording five starts and averaging 6.1 points and shot .545 for the month. He scored a season-high 19 points in a 112-99 win over Boston on Jan. 12 and grabbed a season-high 10 rebounds in his pro debut, a 107-99 win at Toronto on Nov. 1. John appeared in the Schick Rookie Game at All-Star Weekend, the first Knick ever selected for the contest.
“My son signed up for the first session of the John Wallace basketball clinic, he learned so much that he begged me to sign him up for the 2nd session. He comes home from the clinic and goes outside to our basketball hoop (even in this cold weather) and practices what he has learned. Recently during the week, he was thinking about what he had learned and he taught me how to properly “shoot” the ball from the chin. This clinic is very organized and is a challenge for my son. This is evident by the fact that mid-week my son is thinking about what he learned at clinic. John Wallace and his team of coaches are dedicated to teaching and developing the skills of these young basketball players. He builds the confidence of each player through individual drills as well as from a team approach.
Thank you John Wallace!! “
