John Wall, the professional basketball player for the Houston Rockets of the National Basketball Association, was trending on Twitter after a list of top NBA earners was shared by the NBA Central account. Steph Curry’s name was at the top of the list with $45.7 million. Wall was second. 

As per Spotrac, his 2021-22 season salary is $44,310,840. Others in the NBA Central list in descending order were James Harden, Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant, LeBron James, Paul George, Kawhi Leonard, Damian Lillard, and Giannis Antetokounmpo.

Several NBA analysis websites, however, cite his salary as a problem for the Rockets. Analyses say he is not a good fit for the team but trade-offs seem difficult considering the amount he is owed by the Rockets at this point - more than $90 million. 

Who is John Wall dating?

As per most gossip websites, Wall is currently single. According to one website, while Wall has had at least nine relationships previously, he has not been engaged. The website also listed the women he had supposedly dated in the past.

They included Darnell Nicole, who he allegedly dated in 2017. Karrueche Tran was reportedly his girlfriend between 2012 and 2013. He also reportedly dated Keyshia Dior, Kash Barb, and Hazel Renee. 

As per PlayerWives.com, Wall and his ex-girlfriend Shante have one child together - Ace Wall.  Ace was born in late 2018. In April, 2020, Wall revealed he was expecting his second son. But it’s not confirmed if the second child is also with Shante. Wall was also previously linked with British singer Ella Mai. In May 2018, Mai was linked with the basketball player after he had tagged her in one of his videos.


Back in April, a report suggested that Wall was dating Ellane, another ex-girlfriend, about whom little has been reported. She goes only by her first name and has a substantial following on Instagram. As per the report, the two used to date years ago, sometime around 2012. They supposedly met back when she was a bottle girl at the clubs in Washington DC. 

In February 2015, Wall did an interview with Peter Rosenberg of New York's Hot 97, and among other things, spoke about his personal life. When it came time to talk about his relationship status, he revealed that he was choosing to stay single for the time being as he wasn't "ready to be faithful”.

He said, “I’m single. I see it as I’m young. I feel like if I came into the game with a girl I was in love with, it’s different. There’s been a couple ladies I liked, wanted to date. But I know I wouldn’t be faithful right now. I’ll be honest, though, I’ll be honest. I’d rather be friends and stay that way than go with a girl, lose a friend and never talk to her again. I’m not ready to be faithful, so I’ll be honest with a woman, and I don’t want to break nobody’s heart."
