BEST OF MAXIM
That headline specifically does not mean that Gerald Wallace doesn't want to play in Portland, is unhappy on the Blazers, or wouldn't eventually re-sign with them either. Even though he doesn't want to talk about a possible contract extension with team officials anymore.
It just means that the new CBA suggests the more financially beneficial decision is to not agree...
Gerald Wallace, whose nickname ''Crash'' usually defines his on-court demeanor, managed to crack a smile when fans at the Rose Garden began chanting his name in the third quarter of Portland's victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Tuesday night.
Wallace scored 20 points, making a key 3-pointer with two minutes left, and the Blazers won 105-97 to avenge a loss...

The Trailblazers showed a lot of heart last night as they outscored the Magic 36-22 in the 4th quarter, but it wasn’t enough to win. The Magic shot 58.6% from the floor and they outrebounded the Blazers 42-32, so it’s no surprise that the Blazers lost this game. Jamal Crawford (24 points, 3 rebounds and 5 assists) and LaMarcus Aldridge (23 points, 8 rebounds, 2 assists and...
