Wyc also talked about Rasheed Wallace:
that in the interview and the recruiting session. He said he means it
always to try to help the team. He and his former teammates and coaches
that you talk to when you do research on him, they love him as a
player. Coaches love him, players love to play with him. The refs have
mixed feelings, but that’s what refs are for."
Asked if he was
prepared for all things Rasheed, Grousbeck said, "I actually told David
(Stern) that I was going to modify my baseline ref assistance program a
little bit to make up for the fact that we’ve got Rasheed. So I’m going
to be doing a little less helping of the refs from the baseline. Just
trying to even things out."
and Glen "Big Baby" Davis:
Celtics have had "a lot of conversations with him" and added, "We
expect to see him in green. But things play out and you never know."
