After firing his old agent and saying he planned to have an attorney (billing on an hourly basis rather than taking a percentage) negotiate his new deal, Wallace went out last month and hired one of the most powerful deal brokers in the business, Arn Tellem.
"I needed an agent, that's all that is," Wallace said. "You know, everyone needs somebody to talk for them every now and then. They get tired of hearing your voice."
what the? well i guess he grew a brain on that one.
Yo Kent, not only you thought Ben did not need an agent. Apparently Ben Wallace himseld thought that as well..
i always thought Ben needed an agent. I was merely being sarcastic. now i wonder what the deal was. did Ben fire his and realise he made a huge mistake? Or was his plan to get this new guy all along and he was trying to save face?
That statement was a lot more than Wallace would concede at the start of his interview, answering a somewhat vague question about what happens next with a curt "Next question."
When the subject was broached again with the query, "Is there a chance you might leave the Pistons?" the only answer Wallace gave was "Anybody got any other questions?"
hmm....... Benny Boy didnt like getting benched in the 4th. of course, had I been coach, I would have benched the entire starting 5 (for the first 2 minutes, not whole 4th, give or take what the backups did) with how pooly they played. maybe THAT would have shocked them into played better.
