Rasheed Wallace was quite candid Monday about his issues with officials, he of the 296 career technical fouls and 24 ejections.

On potential replacement officials: "I know there’s going to be a lot of stupid star calls like it is with the old refs, so I don’t there’s going to be too much change."

Do you think the replacement refs will be fair?

"I hope so. Of course I know they are going to come in all happy-go-lucky 'Oh I have Sheed Wallace a tech tonight, ha ha ha.' But I could care less about that. As long as we go out there and win, if I’m on the floor, oh fine. If I’m not on the floor, I think guys are still talented enough on this team with their high IQ to get that W."

Can you actually have discussions with officials or do they tune you out?

"There are a few officials that I can talk to but there are a few officials that if I look at them the wrong way or breath too hard are going to call a tech. It all depends on that official on how they feel all night."
