The Wallace hate is way over blown. So is the myth that he isn't a good player anymore. I never expected him to duplicate his rebounding numbers from last year.
All basketball players have up and down periods. If you sell every time a player is down a little bit because you suspect the sky is falling it won't get the team anywhere. There have been plenty of times most of you have been ready to trade DJ or Hendo but they seem to be playing well now. Give it some time with Wallace.
Get rid of Jackson though he sucks.
From what I remember he was still having 20 and 10 games up until he repeatedly injured his ankles. So he sat out while we got a new coach and completely changed the style this team plays. Give him time to heal and adjust and you will see the same old Wallace.
I think alot of people are missing out on the fact the Jackson and Wallace play the same position. We may start Jackson at SG but he's a SF that scores points pretending to be a SG. Other than score what does Jackson do? Complain? We can expect Wallace to rebound, block a couple shots, maybe get a steal or two. Wallace has never been a scorer, so seeing so many people complain about that is funny. This team doesn't post Wallace up anymore, Teams know he's going to drive so they collapse the lane on him.
Wallace basically has to do his job plus Diaw's. Where's the thread wondering why Diaw only takes 5 shots a game. Last night it was close to 5 mins before halftime when Diaw finally hit a shot. Wallace has been and will always be the perfect role player. He's not going to take over the game in the last 2 mins. He hasn't played better then last year, But other than DJ who has?
We would of lost to the Bulls with out Wallace. Who else on the team could have done what he did in those few minutes right after someone re-aggravated his injured ankle.
