Rasheed Wallace Needs Surgery, Out for the Season

When reports initially surfaced that said Rasheed Wallace’s season was doomed thanks to a left foot injury, the veteran forward attempted to refute them and vowed to play again. Now that he needs surgery to repair the fractured foot, the writing is clearly on the wall. Per the NY Daily News: “Wallace has been sidelined since mid December and the Knicks announced on Wednesday that X-rays ‘showed progression to a fractured left fifth metatarsal, otherwise known as a Jones fracture.’ [...] Surgery is scheduled for this week and according to the club recovery time is approximately eight weeks. The surgery could mean the end of Wallace’s career. The 38-year-old forward was convinced by Mike Woodson into returning to the league after Wallace sat out the previous two seasons. Last week, the Knicks signed veteran forward Kenyon Martin to a 10-day contract.”

    Sheed grew up homeless…have respect!
    He is also the only NBA player to play with down syndrome. With the amount of accomplishments he has, while being retarded.
    unfortunately, with Sheed’s old age he became even more retarded, and would have spontaneous outburst’s of “MY BALLS ARE DRY”..
    A great role model for “special” people everywhere!

    Geez Reed… community college(s) are not bad & I doubt he went.

    btw, Walter Disney, Gwendolyn Brooks, Ross Perot, Jim Lehrer, Clint Eastwood, George Lucas, Billy Crystal, Nolan Ryan, Tom Hanks, Halle Marie Berry, Queen Latifah, and many other super successful peeps have attended community colleges.
