The thought of Kobe Bryant staring from the corner while teammate Rasheed Wallace launches a 27-footer from the wing is gold, my friends. And it will reportedly soon come true. (CSNNE)
There’s at least one team apparently still with a need for Rasheed Wallace.
CSNNE.com has learned that the former Boston Celtic forward plans to sign with the Los Angeles Lakers.
Wallace hasn’t played in an NBA game since Game 7 of the 2010 NBA Finals, alerting the C’s shortly before the game that he planned to retire.
At least the Lakers know Rasheed has been diligently working out ever since retiring. As you could no doubt tell by the great shape he was in during his tenure with the Celtics, Sheed has always been a huge workout buff. That’s why he was always so timely with defensive rotations and never settled for outside jump shots. Hah.
In all seriousness, the year Sheed spent in Boston scarred me more deeply than my 2005 appendicitis. Have fun, Los Angeles. This could result in a Kobe-Sheed fight to the death. Or a Mike Brown-Sheed fight to the death, depending on whether Kobe or Brown snaps at Sheed first. And if Sheed ends up squaring off with his new coach, I’ve got my money on Brown because he’s definitely in better shape.
