The magnificent Rasheed Wallace turned 40-years-old Thursday. No, Celtics fans, he wasn’t 40-years-old during the 2010 NBA Finals. Heard that joke already today.
I’ll remember ‘Sheed for his tremendous footwork in the post over his penchant for launching when he crossed half court in his later years. I’ll remember him for the cutoff sweatpants he wore during warmups before every game. And for the cold Miller Lites he had waiting for him in his locker after a big Celtics win.
Happy birthday, ‘Sheed.
