Kennedy: Gerald Wallace Didn't See Trade Coming
I posted this in the "We are Sorry GW" thread but I'm concerned (since it is not on page 1) that it will become lost in the thread...people should have a look at this article and I have to admit I have a pretty good "burn" towards our FO after reading this one...here is a part of the article and a link...
When the Charlotte Bobcats decided to trade Gerald Wallace to the Portland Trail Blazers, it was news to everyone, including Wallace. The forward had no idea that he was being shopped, and the trade completely blindsided him.
"I was shocked," Wallace told HOOPSWORLD. "I was kind of disappointed because I didn't see it coming. It was just one of those things that you're not expecting and it catches you off guard."
In the hours leading up to the trade deadline, Wallace was confident that he wasn't going anywhere. That's because the decision makers in Charlotte repeatedly told him that he wouldn't be traded. Even on the morning of Feb. 24, the team reiterated that they had no plans to move him."
