He played awful last year as well. And he is even worse this year.

IF you did play him 35 minutes, it would also be absolute poison for the Bulls.

Ben wallace cannot shoot he is an 11 year vet that cant even hit 20% free throws. This is important because the other team can do 1 of 2 things.

1. foul him hard while he tries to dunk it.
2. do not have to guard him at 10 feet from the basket.

He is a liability but when he is playing good he is a game changer getting offensive rebounds, steals, blocks in bunches.

Detroit's defensive system maximized his athletic tools and minimized his lack of skills. Chicago's defensive system does the exact opposite.

well u guys are sayin he's playing less minutes now... but theres got to be a reason why he's playing less minutes. If he's contributing a big piece, i dont think the coach will cut down his minutes.

Long story short: The Bulls are awful. Paxson should have moved Wallace in a trade to get Kobe. Now?

Look forward to more of this for the rest of the year!

Seriously though, all Wallace brought to the table was hustle. In Detroit, he had 4 guys around him who had no problems scoring the rock. In Chicago? Well, let's just say his cast is nowhere near the level of a Mr. Big Shot, Rip, Tayshaun and 'Sheed! And he already got paid, so where's his motivation?

Most overpaid player in the league. And that's saying a lot in the NBA.

I actually had to drop him from my fantasy team because he was killing my FG and FT% while getting about 4 rebounds a game....

I've got gaurds who average more than that.
