NEW YORK — Doc Rivers says Rasheed Wallace never should’ve retired and that he’s rooting for him to do well with the Knicks.
“I love him,” the Celtics coach said before Boston met the Knicks Monday at MSG.
“He was great for us. I’m happy for him. We had a long conversation last year and I just never thought he should’ve retired. I said that when he retired. I just thought it was too early for him. I’m glad he’s playing. Players should play. I think sometimes at the end of your career you’re almost talked into retirement and so you start thinking about it and you do it.
