PLAYERS: Gerald Wallace
TEAMS: Brooklyn Nets
  Last night’s game between the Nets and Lakers was an entertaining nail biter. It went down to the wire and came down to some freethrows that needed to be made by Kobe. So Gerald Wallace decided to use some tricks on Kobe and challenge him to shoot them shots with his eyes close. Kobe didn’t bite, or at least without challenging Wallace back with a bet. Wallace later explained it like this: “I was trying to get him to close his eyes to shoot. I had to make a big bet…So I told him just shoot the free throws.” - Gerald Wallace Fans sitting courtside claim they heard Kobe say “500″ which would be 500 stacks or $500,000. Wallace, obviously didn’t bite back.
