It's been a long time coming.

John Wall has finally been recognized as one of the best point guards in the NBA.

For years, the Wizards star guard and franchise cornerstone has appeared to be disrespected by the media. The Wizards blog Bullets Forever asked this season why Wall doesn't get as much respect as other point guards in the league.

Consider this the season Wall finally arrived and earned the respect many in D.C. already knew he was due. Wall was selected to the All-NBA third team for the season. He averaged a double double, with more than 23 points and 10 assists per game.

The only guards ranked higher than Wall on the All-NBA list? First-teamers James Harden and Russell Westbrook, and second-teamers Steph Curry and Isaiah Thomas.

That's pretty good company.
