Didnt think so, lol
I haven't seen Wallace play all that much (and remember less). Is there a chance he would also back up the two spot? There ought to be 30+ minutes coming off the bench for a swingman who can play both the two and three.
He's not a shooter, I think Gerald Wallace is a player you love to have on a bad team because he plays with energy and athleticism, but he's never been in clutch situations, or had to lead, or had to make the game winning shot. Putting fantasy basketball aside, is he really a top 30 player?
This came up during his dunk contest days... Wallace doesn't have very good hands, and Tay does. They aren't bad enough I wouldn't want him on my team, but I sure wouldn't want him instead of Tay.
yeah, we could use some more 2's Guys that can play the 2. Billups, Rip, Afflalo, Murray, Stuckey, Meija, Hunter, Prince
That is yet to be seen. However, he was buried on the bench for the most part on a very good Sacremento team for three years. He came into his own on a terrible Charlotte team the last couple of years. On a very talented Piston team playing perhaps, 25 MPG, IMO he could be a major contributor. His athleticisim and energy can do nothing but help a complacent Piston team. How about a lineup of AJ, J-Max, Tay, Stuckey, and Wallace for some energy?
I'm not doubting that Wallace can be a contributor, it's just that we have to start looking in another direction than collecting $8-10 million dollar players when we don't have a go to guy, or someone who gets mad love from the refs.
I hear ya. But that`s just not the Pistons way!!!!!!
$10 million dollars?! For that kind of money, it seems like you are pretty close to Rashard Lewis. I think Rashard is a much better all around player.
Rashard is worthy of a Billups-esque deal. But as Chuck Daly said when the Pistons made a big offer to the Atlanta Hawks' Jon Koncak, "It's not what you are worth, it's what you can negotiate."
I'd want him so bad, I can't tell. He'd be the perfect fit and he could play PF along with Tay. Or Tay could come off the bench a la Ginobili. Having G Wallace would be so sweet, I can't tell. But I highly doubt he'll come to Detroit. And where the hell does Dallas have the money from to sign him eventually???
Am I right ahb?
Thank you. Time for Joe to harden up the organization.
if that Seattle trade involving RIP happens, I'd love to see Tay playing the 2 with G Wallace at the 3. Geez, that would be a huge backcourt.
I'd love to see us play big when other teams play small... they'd only get one shot with all our big athletic people getting the rebounds
Other than the fact, that Wallace is raising (and younger) and you have seen the best of Tay. The 3 spot is your spontaneity and energy level. It is the roamer, the rebounder, the 3 pt. shot, the slasher and keeps everything honest. Right now, JD is still looking at a team that no longer has the desires to bring-it on a sustained level.
