Rasheed Wallace wishes the old Washington Bullets got kept together

New, comments

Are you ready for a blast from the past? Here's current New York Knicks injured forward Rasheed Wallace talking about his too-brief tenure with our favorite franchise in an interview with Michael Lee of the Washington Post.

"Man, I think about it a lot," said Wallace, who averaged 10.1 points and 4.7 rebounds in his rookie season. "I understand it was all business and money, but we had a helluva squad here. I wish we could've stayed like two, three years together, just to be able to see what we could've done."

[...]

"That it was a helluva team and we could've did some things. ...I think we would've went far in the playoffs, because we were big.

Lee notes that the Bullets tried trading Wallace for the No. 1 pick in the 1996 draft, which turned into Allen Iverson. I did not know about that one.
