“There’s a notion Wallace retired after the 2009-10 season because he no longer had the dedication to get in NBA shape and finished the Celtics year in poor condition. However, his mother — now in good health — was ill at the time of Wallace’s retirement, and that could have been a factor in his decision.”
Tommy DeeI had a feeling after Boston lost that Wallace wasn’t ready to hang it up. He’s a big guy who can knock down shots, and he’s a good post defender by default with his size and length. I didn’t think it made much sense but I’m starting to think that I agree in the end it’s a low risk, high reward signing.
