There are no other words to describe it. Rasheed Wallace, a four-time NBA All-Star, is without a doubt one of the game’s living superstars.
Wallace is a pioneer in the NBA, having played from 1995 until 2013. He popularised the expression “ball don’t lie,” and his tough-as-nails defensive intensity set the tone for his locker room.
During his playing career, Wallace led the Detroit Pistons to the 2004 NBA Championship, defeating the Los Angeles Lakers. Darvin Ham, who just took over as head coach of the Lakers, was one of his colleagues.
In an interesting move, the former teammates are likely to reunite in Los Angeles, according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania, who reports that Wallace will join Ham’s coaching staff.
