Boston Celtics head coach Doc Rivers was on WEEI radio in Boston on Monday and talked about big man Rasheed Wallace. Rivers said that he thinks this is the end of the road for Wallace.
“I think you have [seen Wallace's last game],” Rivers said. “He was so emotional right after the game, but Rasheed told me the night before that, ‘I’m going to give you everything I’ve got. I really believe this is my last game that I’m going to play.’
“He said this year was very difficult for him, physically, and that he never felt like, even the conditioning part of it hurt, and he doesn’t think he wants to go through that again. And he wants to watch his kids. I do think that’s the last time you see him in a Celtics’ uniform.”
We’d be disappointed if ‘Sheed retires, but we understand. Despite all the issues with technical fouls and such, we’ve always been huge fans of his game. He puts the dick in our mouth down low, he puts the dick in our mouth outside the three-point line, oh and he plays defense.
We’ll see what happens here, but it might be the end of the line.
