VIDEO: John Wall Lives Up To His Name With Massive Block

The 2012 Rising Stars Challenge is not even half over yet but it's already offered its fair share of highlight reel moments. As expected, there have been plenty of dazzling dunks and alley-oops going around, but John Wall treated everyone to something rarely seen in an exhibition or All-Star Game: defense!

Norris Cole drove up the middle for what he thought was a easy lay-up but nope! Wall chased him down and rejected the shot in spectacular fashion. Check out the video:

And in case you wanted to watch the moment of truth over and over again on an unending loop (and of course you do), here is a GIF for your enjoyment:
