Default What's wrong with Ben Wallace?

Through three games, Wallace is averaging 4.3 points, 3.7 rebounds, 1.7 blocked shots and 0.0 steals. He averaged 7.3 points, 11.3 rebounds, 2.2 blocked shots and 1.8 steals with Detroit in 2005-06 before signing a four-year, $60 million contract with Chicago.

all in a shade under 30 minutes per game.


I bet if Jason Collins really tried hard, he could average 4.3 points and 3.7 rebounds in 30 minutes.


did Big Ben get paid and simply decide to take it easy? is Big Ben pouting about the Bulls system? has he really declined that bad? I mean look at him. he's a physical specimen. no way he declined that much.

or are the Bulls not getting him the ball because they are currently in a miserable stretch where their offense has sputtered and they are doing everything they can to get Deng and Gordon going?

Bulls fans, what is wrong with Ben Wallace?

Last year, it was supposedly the lack of headband. This year, they give it to him, and I think although he is struggling now, he will eventually pick up his level of play.

Default Re: What's wrong with Ben Wallace?

I always thoguht he was grossly overpaid. Hes an aging big man who relies on his hustle and spped. Even last season, you could see he wasnt the same as when he was with teh pistons. Fact is is hes getting up there in age. Physically, hes just as strong and in shape as hes always been but hes lost a step or 2

Default Re: What's wrong with Ben Wallace?

He injured his foot in his last pre season game, and has been playing with an injury ever since. He is not healed, and when you watch a Bulls game you can see he can't even jump and it is paining him.

But with Noah and Tyrus Thomas hurt too, Wallace suited up the first three games as they needed someone to play. Now that Noah is back and Thomas is healthy, they are talking about giving Ben time to heal.

Wallace has rarely put up good numbers with the Bulls. He sucked fantasy-wise last year also. Wallace could be the most oveerated, overhyped player in the league ever since he left Detroit.

Its like so many people think the world of Ben Wallace, like hes an allstar. Everytime i watch him he never justifies the hype he gets, and always has trouble with centers much longer than him, which is alot of them. Its like everyone keeps waiting and waiting for him to be Detroit Ben Wallace when that isnt going to happen. Detroit made him look better than he was.

Although his GAME is overrated, his IMPACT is not overrated. The Bulls would not have been able to get to the 2nd round of the playoffs without him, I can tell you that.

He sure did, numbnuts.

6.4 points
10.7 rebounds
2.4 assists
1.4 steals
2.0 blocks

77 games played and started.

He hasn't sucked fantasy-wise since leaving Orlando 7 years ago.
