The Washington Wizards' star point guard John Wall just joined a bunch of NBA superstars, as he signed a deal with Red Bull:

Early this year, Jason Kidd, the legendary point guard, was asked to list the NBA players he expected to take up the torch as master of the triple-double. In addition to the usual suspects -- LeBron James, Dwayne Wade and Rajon Rondo -- Kidd named John Wall, the second-year point guard for the Washington Wizards.

In only two seasons, 21-year-old Wall has emerged as one of the NBA's youngest, most complete and explosive players. Today, he joins Rondo, Blake Griffin and Deron Williams as an official Red Bull athlete.
"I’m an avid Red Bull drinker,” Wall says. “I drink Red Bull all the time before games. It gets me hyped up. It gives me energy, that speed, that boost in games.”
Wall, who recorded a triple-double in his rookie season, filled the stat box again last year, averaging 16 points, 8 assists and 4.5 rebounds a game. The rebound number is startlingly high for a point guard, and Wall credits some advice he once received from Kidd.
“Jason Kidd once told me that he got a lot of his triple-doubles by just standing at the free throw line,” he recalls. “A lot of rebounds just drop in to him."
