John Wall had a harsh introduction to USA Basketball protocol last week when confusion over the departure time for the first Select Team practice led to him being about five minutes late for the bus from the hotel. The punishment: USAB Chairman Jerry Colangelo told Wall that he would have to pay a $600 fine.

"I didn't know the time. Didn't nobody send me the time," Wall said, explaining his tardiness, after concluding practice on Monday at the Thomas and Mack Center on the UNLV campus.
