Sam Smith: Olympic Team Needs Rasheed Wallace
Sam Smith of THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE writes, “We've seen that Wallace does give a darn about his teammates. He has proven to be an excellent and reliable teammate on a terrific Pistons team that just finished its season series with the Spurs with a second straight blowout win. The notion of Wallace as an Olympian would have seemed absurd even a year ago, but it comes to mind with the sudden rush of NBA players to play for the 2008 team in Beijing that includes participation in the world championships in Japan this summer.”
