I remember the quote. He said it the day after Yao/Tmac and Co. just finished beating the crap out of them:

Wow, Yao torched them that night. 34 points on 13-15 shooting?

Gasol and Bryant are better.
Pierce and Garnett are better.

IMO.

Wallace can come warm the bench for Houston.

Fat man and ****** are way better than YaoMac, he must hang out with Howard.

and btw YaoMac > KobeBynum,pau,odum...IF Yao and Tmac can find somewya to stay on the court together

Yao and Tmac at 100% health are easily better than either of those duos.
Yao is the most dominant big guy in the league when healthy, and McGrady is every bit the player Pierce is and only a notch below Bryant.

Healthy Yao >>> Gasol

Too much Wallace hate in this thread.
The interview was in the heat of the moment, right after a game where Yao played like prime shaq. In hindsight he would realise that Shaq/Bryant won those rings etc. Just a momentary lapse obviously.

They are never healthy though, and they haven't gotten out of the first round one the same team. Pau and Kobe have.

Wallace a few years back was looking to get a contract on the free agency market , landed back in Bobcatville.
Ironically it was his best year.
Just pondering not the statement , but the idea of him playing for Houston for example...
(his statement had no merit as others have pointed out)

Dont make yourself look stupid. Pau, Kobe, Odom, role players playing well and excellent coaching got past the first round.

Yao Ming when 100% is a monster. Tmac is an excellent top tier swingman.
We are talking duos. 1-2 punches. Not teams.

Yes but when you say "Kobe and Odom" are better, then thats just plain stupid. Because you cant make the argument that they ever achieved more and reokets won a lot more games then they did.

Quotes are said relative to a particular situation. And then later are taken out of context. This is exactly the case here with Gerald Wallace.
