Nazr Mohammed: Rasheed was an underappreciated talent. His touch from anywhere on the floor was just ridiculous. You couldn’t ask for more from an inside-out guy. He could knock down the three-point shot — with both hands — or take you into the post. I played with and against Sheed throughout my career, so I got a couple of different views of him. As an opponent, he was tough to guard because he had this deadly shot with a really high release. He also perfected what I call “The High Booty Back Down.”
Behold The Champions League, a non-NBA affiliated venture where the league’s chairman and CEO, Carl George, is hoping to provide family-friendly and affordable entertainment during the NBA’s downtime. The vision, expected to be announced formally today, looks like this. Sixteen teams to begin competing in the summer of 2016, with a strong preference for players who have competed in the NBA during the last three years. According to George, the New York team is already fully formed and includes former NBA players Al Harrington, Rasheed Wallace and Maurice Ager. Teams in Boston, Philadelphia, Washington, Miami, Orlando, Atlanta and Cleveland are up next, with the goal to employ approximately 250 players in all (170 on teams, others as player-coaches or in other roles). Each team would have two former NBA All-stars on the roster and a Hall of Famer in the front office. George said that 60 players have committed to this point, with many more “in the pipeline” while the subsequent teams are rolled out.
Storyline: Champions League
Wallace was a very talented player who was popular with his Portland teammates, and like just about every person on the planet, has a good side. But it’s revisionist history to say he was accommodating to the fans. I saw him walk past autograph seekers too many times to mention. In three seasons from 1999-2002, “Mr. T” received 107 technical fouls, including a league-record 41 in 2000-01. Wallace led the NBA in the category five different seasons, and it wasn’t because the referees had it in for him. I would assert he’d have gotten more if the refs hadn’t gotten tired of calling them on him, and also because they didn’t want to be accused of bias.
