Gerald Wallace Rips Celtics Teammates Again After Blowing Huge Lead vs Bucks
I see what you’re doing Gerald Wallace.
Wallace in my opinion is doing his absolutely best to complain and bash his way into a release from the Celtics.
Wallace, who came to Boston in the trade that sent Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Jason Terry to the Brooklyn Nets, has appeared to become the teams vocal leader since arriving in town.
The Celtics blew a 22 point lead to the Bucks’ Friday night, and Wallace was furious.
“We got selfish,” Wallace said, according to NESN.com. “Instead of worrying about winning the ball game, we were more worried about our stats and getting points. It showed. We went from a team that was together and moving and playing together in the first half to a team that was five individuals out on the court, everyone playing for themselves, and it showed on the defensive end.”
Wallace who ripped his teammates in the preseason for a lousy effort, has no explanation for the meltdown.
“I really don’t understand it,” he said. “I’m trying to figure out what’s more important, winning or padding your stats. This was a game we were supposed to win easily, without even the starters playing the fourth quarter. Instead, we got selfish as a team. We didn’t move the ball, we let the ball stick instead of pushing the ball and their second unit came in and they handled us. We didn’t really know what to do.”
