Rasheed Wallace: A Model of Class

Rasheed Wallace recently got suspended for one game following his 16th technical foul of the season. David Stern implemented this automatic suspension rule for a player that receives 16 T's in one season and another game suspension for every two remaining technicals. This isn't a surprise coming from a player that has averaged over 25 techs for the last decade.

Said Wallace,
"I don't care about No. 16," Wallace said. "I'm just going to be cheering from home."

It appears as though he is very remorseful for his actions. A model team player and role model for all.

Seriously, how hard is it to not get 16 technical fouls in a season? Only a player that wanted to get 16 would end up getting suspended. Although I don't agree with some of Stern's recent acts to clean up the NBA like the dress code, this new rule should help protect the refs (who probably have the hardest reffing job in sports) and give an incentive to players to stop acting like imbeciles.

But hey, if Sheed wants to hurt his team, that is up to him.

Yup, they missed him tonight, back to the drawing board, young Hater-in-Training.

They should start McDyess for the rest of the year.

Yeah that sucks, but he actually HAS been a team player ever since joining the Pistons, the ultimate team team, btw, in the NBA. Besides, it's not like they can escape the Flip Saunders first-round jinx anyway. I will not be satisfied unless the Pistons either win the title or blow it in the first round. Anything in between is so meh.

Yes, he has been a team player for the most part but in this case he is obviously not.

If Roy Williams can win somewhere besides Kansas, then so can Flip.

At least, he better.

Oh and Kyle Lohse has already loaded the bases.

Go Tigers!
