Last year, Pistons center Andre Drummond made an entertaining bowling vine. Now, John Wall has submitted his own entry into the very narrowly defined genre of animated GIFs of hoopsters bowling.

The Wizards guard and teammates, who had Wednesday off, bowled at the White House’s two-lane Harry S. Truman Bowling Alley. Wall demonstrated an unorthodox backhanded release to pick up a spare.

With the number of injuries the Wizards have endured this season, one has to wonder about the wisdom of spending downtime bowling — especially in light of Wall’s funky delivery that appears ripe for a wrenched wrist. It’s far safer to dance like Wall, than to bowl like him.


After debuting in the West Wing of the White House, the two-lane Harry S. Truman Bowling Alley was moved to the Eisenhower Executive Office Building in the mid 1950s for use by staffers and guests.
