PLAYERS: Gerald Wallace
TEAMS: Boston Celtics
Gerald Wallace called out the Celtics, again. Following Boston’s 105-98 loss to the Bucks Friday in which they blew a 22-point lead, the forward said the team got selfish and became more worried about getting stats than points. According to Ben Rohrbach, WEEI.com: “We got selfish,” he said after the Celtics blew a 22-point lead in a 105-98 loss to the Bucks. “We got selfish as a team. Instead of worrying about winning the ballgame, we were more worried about our stats, getting points… And who might be the stat-padding offenders? “I don’t have a clue,” said Wallace. “You’ve got to ask everybody individually. I don’t know. I don’t even really understand it. I’m trying to figure out what’s more important, winning or padding your stats, because this was a game that we were supposed to win easy without even the starters playing in the fourth quarter… The post Gerald Wallace Calls Out Celtics After Blowing 22-Point Lead In Loss To Bucks appeared first on Beyond The Buzzer.

Gerald Wallace rips teammates after Celtics blow huge lead

BOSTON — Only two games into the season, Celtics fans should know by now not to take Gerald Wallace‘s sky-is-falling comments to heart.

Wallace doing his best to be the team's leader

There is only so much Gerald Wallace can do. Wallace, being the only guy on the Celtics' roster who has been a team's best player in the past, is the defacto team leader for Boston with Rajon Rondo out.

Gerald Wallace: Red Sox Super Fan

While the early season criticism of Gerald Wallace has been that he needs to create more opportunities for himself, be more creative on offense, mentor the team, and essentially drive the bus until Jeff Green does or Rondo comes back to do it himself, the one thing you can't knock Wallace for is his desire. He wants to play basketball, and more importantly, he wants to play...

Underrated Stat of the Night - Bucks 11/1

Well, this game sucked. The Celtics, despite leading for basically the first 47 minutes, lost tonight to the Bucks, 105-98. I guess Milwaukee did play pretty well in the second half, but overall this loss is on the C's. They're not gonna win many games this year, so when they have one right in front of them like they did tonight, they really gotta take it. But, they slacked...
