Sheed's bald spot is one of life's great mysteries
If you forgot about Rasheed Wallace, I wouldn't blame you.
There's the fact that he retired following Game 7 of the 2010 NBA Finals, and didn't play basketball for 28 months.
There's also the fact that a stress fracture in his foot seemed destined to end his return bid for the Knicks, appearing to end his season after just 20 games on December 13th.
But Wallace is reportedly recovering quicker than anticipated from surgery, and is looking to return to the team in one of their final regular season games as a tune up for the playoffs.
From the New York Post (link).
Rasheed Wallace could play for the first time since mid-December tomorrow when the Knicks visit Charlotte, Mike Woodson said.
Wallace, who had foot surgery in late February, is significantly ahead of schedule. Wallace was on the court running today on the Garden floor before they faced the Pacers in an attempt to clinch the second seed and...

The Tweet didn’t provide much context, but there isn’t really much needed. Given the track records of both athletes, nothing really should surprise you. Article found on: Next Impulse Sports

Smith is widely known for the numerous tattoos he has on his body. And if he has it his way, he plans on adding another after the season.

He'll notice that the team only had 81 games that year, and wonder why. The cancelled April 16th contest against the Indiana Pacers will be just a tiny footnote in Celtics lore, but a permanent...
