Why did Ben Wallace leave?
 
Ok so I've searched this forum for a while but havent found anything. Im sure it was discussed last year but I never quite figured it out.

Why exactly did Ben Wallace leave? Was it Flip? Or was it the extra $3m a year or what?

It doesnt make sense that you would leave a team that had 4 consecutive WC Finals appearances, 2 finals, a championship and the leagues best record. It was the difference of making $12.4m a year and $15m a year? Does anybody know why he really did it? Or if he'll ever come back?

It's just the money man. He probably also put into perspective the young talent and the promising future of the chicago bulls to the aging team he once had.

This 'aging' team had only been getting better since he joined. Even after he left, they had a pretty good season. Wasn't there something to do with Flip Saunders. I have been told that a handful of the Pistons dont like him.

Who? because of him they won the chip in 04. They are still good friends as of this day.

Flip Saunders they didnt get along because he is loose during the season then he becomes extremely uptight during the playoffs at least that was what I heard. I think it was a mix of Flip and the amount of money Chicago was offering him.

Flip has no concept of defense and masks it by saying

"we will play ALL variations of ZONE DEFENSE."
