Washington Wizards All-Star guard John Wall is known for many things on the court. He’s done some great moves with the ball, made some amazing mid-air acrobatics and even made some players look straight up foolish.
Then, the first lady Michelle Obama came calling for the Wizards to try and get some help for her ‘Gimme Five Challenge’. Wall, his teammate Garrett Temple, Washington Mystics player Tee Pratt and the ‘Wizards Girls’ went with a more choreographed dance for everyone to enjoy.
Obama’s Gimme Five campaign is part of the traditional White House Easter Egg roll happening on April 6. Wall and some of his teammates will be part of the festivities.
This year’s Easter Egg Roll theme is “#GimmeFive.” As part of the First Lady’s Let’s Move! initiative, which aims to help kids grow up healthy and strong, Mrs. Obama is asking Americans to share five things they’re doing to live a healthy life – whether that’s eating five vegetables, doing five jumping jacks, or another combination of five healthy things.
Wall broke out a few new moves for everyone to enjoy but there was an open challenge to one of his teammates. Big man Kevin Seraphin hasn’t made his name for himself yet in the NBA but hopefully this video of him dancing will bring more attention to how fun of a player he is to watch.

I’ll pick Seraphin. You have to go with the the underdog coming in and plus his video was longer. Besides, John Wall is always in the headlines, so why not go with KSLife?
Wizards center Marcin Gortat even has some words for Seraphin’s dance moves.
