    I've been seeing the Wallace billboards all over Chicago to promote ticket sales for the next season. Of all the good shots of Wallace available, they use the picture of him 'attempting' a free throw. :doh::doh: Are they making fun of him already? Below is the animated GIF from the bulls website. You'll see what I mean

    Yeah, right. The Bulls P.R. department is going to make fun of their star player so potential ticket sales will decrease.

    I'll bet they use one next week with Ben in a Bulls Jersey sitting on the bench with arms folded and sulking, while telling Skiles he refuses to go into the game.:rolleyes:

    Paint Shop Pro (owned by Corel now) is my favorite program. Very solid product.

    If he had longer hair and not have the muscles, I probably could see some people thinking he played for the Shock. And the funny thing is, everyone playing for the Shock would have a better percentage than him on the free throw line.
    The pistons should put that picture on the big screen in the middle of the player introduction, when Ben visits the palace in February :nod:

    Photo manipulation is used all the time in sports.

    A lot of times, when a guy is traded, they'll have a picture of him up on tv with the player in the new team's hat, jersey, etc. within hours of the trade.

    How do you know he is attempting a free throw?

    As far as I know, he could be left open for a three point shot.

    :D

    To me, it looks like he is in the process of blocking Earl Boykins shot.
