http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/rumors/p...?urn=nba,71087Gerald Wallace made it clear at practice Monday that just because he can play power forward doesn't mean he should.
"I think my time at the 4 (position) is done," Wallace said, after his first full-contact practice since suffering a concussion Feb. 22 against Sacramento.
Wallace expects he'll be well enough to play Wednesday against the Dallas Maverics. However, he's asked the coaches to stop using him at power forward, to cut down on collisions with bigger players. He's suffered at least four concussions in his three-plus seasons as a Bobcat.
"It was fine playing 4, but I'd be better off out on the wing," Wallace said of returning to the small forward position.
I agree with that. Wallace has developed an outside shot, and is a constant mismatch with his athleticism and hustle. I only hope he doesn't change his style of play.
