Sep 24, 2012 – The New York Knicks are looking into signing power forward Rasheed Wallace, according to newsday.com. Wallace last played on the Boston Celtics back in 2010 as a bit player, helping them make a playoff run. Since then, the 38-year-old has been retired but recently was working out for New York. Head coach Mike Woodson and Wallace have a relationship that dates back to when both were members of the Detroit Pistons, including a 2004 NBA championship. The Knicks feel they need another defensive presence on the interior to pair with center Tyson Chandler, who can be a top-notch defender but also finds himself in foul trouble often. If acquired, Wallace would certainly be cost-effective and join a bench with the likes of other big-men Kurt Thomas and Marcus Camby.
Let me sum up the New York Knicks for you:
A guy unretiring to play for them would only be their 4th oldest player.
I mean now I’m starting to believe they are doing this on purpose. Like they’re playing one gigantic, billion dollar joke. Considering hiring Isiah Thomas. Considering a retired Rasheed Wallace. These are ideas that are so unbelievably bad you have to be trying to do it on purpose. The Knicks are the most dysfunctional team I root for and I’m a fucking Mets and Jets fan.
