Rasheed Wallace is back in the NBA and with that comes automatic entertainment, and amazing quotes.

In between his boxing lessons during practice yesterday, Sheed let the New York Post know what he did on his off time.

Hint, he wasn’t watching Pro Basketball.

“I’m good,’’ Wallace said. “It’s not up to me. It’s up to Coach Woodson. He’ll get me out there when he wants me out there. I’m not one to complain. If it’s not until mid-November, then it’s mid-November. If it’s December, it’s December. It’s on him, not me. He’s the coach. I just got to be ready, that’s all.’’

“Passion, just sitting watching the way some of the guys you call great post players not playing in the post,’’ Wallace said. “It’s the passion to come back and show y’all how post players really need to play — old-school basketball. Y’all are used to all this new, young stuff, high-flying and dunking. That’s not basketball. Terrible footwork by a lot of young guys out here. Let’s go back to old-school basics.’’

“I turned from the BS that they show, with a whole lot of the stuff that’s going on out here,’’ he said. “I was more interested in college. To me it seemed in college ball, guys are more hungry. It’s for a different circumstance when you’re talking about playing for money and playing for heart.“Not saying that guys in the NBA don’t play for heart, but once you get that money, you’re under a different mindset. But when you’re trying to get there and get on this level, you’re more hungry.’’

Rasheed has a point, I’m just not sure he’s the one that should be making that point.

What do I know though.
