The rebuilding effort in Boston isn’t off to the greatest of starts—newcomer Gerald Wallace called out his Celtics teammates for being lazy and selfish following last night’s 104-89 preseason loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves in Montreal. Per the Boston Globe: “‘We’re not playing with effort,’ Wallace said. ‘Guys are out there being selfish. The opponent is giving it their all, regardless of how the night is going.’ […] ‘When we step out on the basketball court, we get paid to do this,’ Wallace said. ‘We’re professionals. So our main thing is, you should want to go out every night and win. It shouldn’t be a question of the effort. You’re going to miss shots, you’re going to turn the ball over, things aren’t going to go your way, but it shouldn’t be because you’re not playing hard or you’re not giving your all.'”
