Seems like This Could Be a Perfect John Wall Restaurant Endorsement!

Driving down 14th Street the other day I spotted the Great Wall Szechuan House.  The small restaurant is located at 1527 14th Street between the U Street Corridor and Logan Circle, and though I've never been there, it seems like they have a wonderful advertising opportunity with the Wizards stud Rookie point guard John Wall sharing their name.

Do you think John Wall would be a good spokesman for the Great Wall Szechuan House?
