John Wall inked a new 5-year deal worth $80 million yesterday.  Today, he pledged to give $1 million to Washington D.C. area charities.

That mentality is just part of the reason the Wizards wanted to lock up the former Cat for the foreseeable future.

Wall can be a franchise player...a foundation to start piecing the building blocks around in hopes of getting back into contention for an NBA title.

And with the contract now set in stone, it allows for the coaches to focus on coaching, and Wall to focus on the task at hand...winning next season and beyond.

More in the video from Wall.
