Big Ben Might Hang ‘Em Up

by June 01, 2009

Ben Wallace talked about the possibility of retiring following the Cavs’ elimination from the Playoffs: ”I have to sit down and talk to my family and see how I feel this summer,’ Wallace said. ‘It ain’t getting no easier for me. It’s tough going out there every night with something hurting, not being able to give the effort you want to give. I love the game and respect the game too much to be going out there half-hearted…Without trying to point the finger at anybody or place the blame on anybody, but when I see my team struggling and I’m on the sideline watching, that’s a tough pill to swallow,’ he said. ‘It always has been, always will be…Over the last couple of years, I guess I can say some of the [passion] has been lost.”’
