Chris Forsberg has a big rundown of today's practice… including how Paul and the guys might have a chat with Sheed.
Pierce said he's not overly concerned with what transpired, but with
Wallace now at 10 technical fouls through 25 games, Pierce does hope he
slows it down a bit moving forward.
"You know Rasheed is going to be Rasheed," said Pierce. "The one
thing we don't want to get to is the point where he's suspended for
games. I'm sure a couple of us will talk to him, [because] he's almost
as the number and we're not even halfway through the season. Sixteen
gets you suspended, so we'll tell him to slow it down a little bit
until the end of the season."
You guys do that. Let's see how that goes. Maybe Doc's inspirational text message will help:
That's the text message Rivers said he sent a couple players after
Friday's game, though he wouldn't confirm if one was Wallace.
"He who angers you, owns you," said Rivers. "I'm trying that this
year. If you don't get angry, you can just keep functioning. I actually
texted that to a couple guys last night, just hoping that becomes our
team mantra right now. Let's breathe.
So this is where we are? Out goes UBUNTU and in comes "He who angers you, owns you"? I guess it's all about baby steps right now.
