Rasheed Wallace enjoys return to DetroitPosted by Inside Hoops
Wednesday night, the Detroit Pistons hosted the Boston Celtics. Now wearing Celtic green, former Piston Rasheed Wallace enjoyed his return.
Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press reports:
As expected, he received the familiar chants of “Sheeeeeed!!!!!” as well as a smattering of boos, perhaps by some who remembered his penchant for controversy and technical fouls.
“It was cool and definitely wonderful,” Wallace said after the Pistons’ 92-86 victory. “It let me know that the fans here still love me as a player.
“It was pretty cool.”
Wallace was playful with former teammates and the Pistons’ coaching staff during the game.
“Just messing with guys,” Wallace said. “My ex-teammates and coaches … just letting them know that we still cool.”
Rasheed is having a decent season in a support role on the Celtics. He fits in and plays well with the team, but misses too many shots. Playing 23.5 minutes per game, the forward/center averages 10.2 points and 4.5 rebounds, but is shooting just 40.8% from the field and 29.7% from three-point range.
