So the NBA told Danny Ainge to talk to Rasheed Wallace about chilling out on commenting on Tim Donaghy's book. They chose not to fine him, because that would bring more unwanted attention to the gambling scandal. Well Wallace says he's going to buy the book and isn't going to shut up any time soon.
“Either way they’re going to get me,” Wallace said. “If I don’t say nothing I’m going to get fined, and if I say something I’m going to get fined. So I might as well say something about what’s on my mind, what I want to say. They’re going to hit me up either way. I’ve been through that before in Portland. When I wasn’t talking to the media they were fining me. But then when I did talk to the media they didn’t like what I had to say, so they fined me some more. So I was like, ‘Well, (expletive), if you’re going to fine me I might as well say what the hell I want to say.’ ”
When it was suggested he could offer a “no comment” to questions about officiating, Wallace said, “Yeah, I could do that, but I think I have to be honest when I’m asked a question. And what happened to freedom of speech? You know, I say what’s on my mind, speaking my freedom, and I get fined for it. It’s a catch-22 with that (expletive), man.
“See, they think they can control people with money. Everybody don’t live like that. That’s how they live up there in that office. They think, ‘Oh, I’m going to hit him in the pocket. That’s where it will hurt.’ No, it don’t hurt me. I didn’t have it growing up, so, I mean, either way it don’t hurt me. As long as my family’s cool, I’m cool. It ain’t hurting my family. I make sure of that.”

As much as I've been harping on Wallace since the season started for chucking up threes at a rate that would make Antoine Walker blush and coming into camp out of shape, it is very refreshing to see someone willing to be completely honest, fines or no fines.

    I really like Sheed. He is true and honest person. The only thing i didn't like is when he got ejected against Philly. He should have controlled himself.
