Rasheed Wallace promised he would work with kids at Paul Pierce's annual camp at Basketball City in Boston and he did. While Wallace (pictured at right attempting a 3-pointer in front of campers) did not speak with reporters, he did indicate to Pierce that he was retired and wanted to travel with his family. Wallace looked to be in great shape, his customary wooly hair cut short and he was coered by the camp kids to launch 3-pointers so they could receive Pierce "The Truth" t-shirts.

After a few misses, Wallace drained a 25-footer, only to be nearly knocked down by a hundred screaming kids. Wallace loved the attention, smiling as much he had during the entire Celtics season.

"I told him go ahead man, do all you need to do, take the kids everywhere, we'll see you in February," Pierce joked about Wallace.
