    Re: Gerald Wallace

    I can't stand Wallace.

    He makes $10 million a year, and he refuses to shoot the ball when he is open.

    His only value will be when his contract expires in a few years.

    I think Brooks would be a better small forward.

    Re: Gerald Wallace

    TripleOG, to your final sentence, I'd love to see Gerald giving 120% but he's not.  Whether or not we win or lose, you make it seem like it's ok NOT to give his all simply because we were supposed to suck this season.  I disagree with THAT.

    His shooting % is respectable because HE'S NOT SHOOTING THE BALL.  Last season, he had THREE ball hogs in Joe Johnson, Deron Williams and Brook Lopez so he was not going to get many opportunities.  He doesn't have that limitation here yet he chooses NOT to shoot more.

    Also, I'm not "looking for excuses".  Why accuse me of looking to blame someone?  This post is addressing one player, Gerald Wallace.  He IS part of the problem but as BirdLewsBias says, the line starts with Jeff Green.  This thread could easily be about him too but it's about Wallace.  There's alot of BLAME to go around but this post isn't about that.

    And lastly, I disagee with your contention that Wallace would be good role player for a contender.  He's a lazy, attitudinal bum.  He's "vet minimum" Gerald.  Don't think he'd start hitting perimeter shots playing for Indiana.  Doubt it.

    Re: Gerald Wallace

    We don't really know the story with Wallace. 

    Perhaps it's attitude;

    perhaps it's a hidden injury;

    or, perhaps, at age 31, he's just lost it - some players slow down gradually, and some just fall off the cliff.

    Perhaps, after 11 grueling years in which he averaged 12 and 6, he's just lost his skills.

     

    Not condoning it, or saying I know anything for a fact.  Perhaps he really doesn't want to be here............

    and his play deserves criticism.............I just cannot say I KNOW he's not trying when he's out there.....I don't, and neither does anyone else!

    It is sad but mabey he could do PR or sell tickets or help around the gym.  He could be the difference in some of these games but he is not playing even near all-star.

    Re: Gerald Wallace

    Hedleylamarr, you might be right but he really looked motivated in the preseason.

    I know it's the preseason, but he looked like he was ready to play.  Even had ME questioning if he should have been the starting SF.  He dropped off quickly, in a matter of a couple months.

    Re: Gerald Wallace

    Wallace has been wanting out of Boston since the trade went down. He doesn't want to be on a team that's rebuilding and to be honest I'm not sure he would even help a contender.

    Billy King made a HUGE blunder by giving him that deal. I can't put that on Ainge. Trust and believe he will be gone by the deadline.

    Re: Gerald Wallace

    I agree with both Petey and BLB......this can't go on Danny, this is on King.

    Petey - didn't see many pre-season games, but I remember the discussion.  If he thought the team would be better, and he's slacking, or if he had a wink wink deal from DA to be moved, and he's just not playing hard, then shame on him!

    A couple of misconceptions.  

    The best way for Wallace to be on another team would have been for him to play more effectively (if possible), not present himself as worthless.

    It has less to do with his desire and more to do with his deteriorated physical ability.  His body is broken given his highly physical (reckless) playing style in the past and as a result he simply cannot perform no matter how hard he tries.

    Wallace is untradeable.   Buyout is worse than waivers.  and he will not be picked up on waivers, so... 

    He will be waived in July and the Celtics will pay $4M per year for the next 5 years.

    At this point, maybe his real worth to the Celts will be in two years when he is an expiring contract?

    No.  $10M per year is too much of a burden for an effective rebuild.

    I agree that waiving him under the stretch provision is our best bet.  However, I think, and I could be wrong, it would be 5 for 4 years.........

    Using the stretch provision on Gerald Wallace is a last resort.

    Why are you guys so impatient!

     

    If Ainge can remove Bass' contract then Wallace's contract isn't that bad anymore.

     

     

    [/QUOTE]

    attitude is the main problem. he keeps on complaining and yapping around and yet he do nothing for the team. did anyone notice his face expressions when he comes into the game? da should do something.. we cannot suspend him because it will cause his stock.

    More important than attitude is a wasted roster spot and $10MM/yr that can be used for another player. I'd rather be $30MM under the cap w/o Wallace than $20MM under the cap with Wallace come next summer.

     



    Celts got 3 1st round picks for taking Wallace.

     

    Would the Nets have given the Celts 3 1st round picks if the Celts didn't agree to take Wallace?

    Enough said.

    [/QUOTE]

    it seems he's really disappointed when he assigned off the bench. we've seen what he can do during the preseason games. someone did ask him to slow down. is someone controlling him or what?

    We won't know for sure.

    I already knew getting Wallace was a bad idea, but because the Nets gave us 3 1st round picks, it's all good.

    maybe billy king phoned wallace and get paid under the table.
