Adios: Rasheed Wallace

Affectionately know as “Rashweed” Wallace, former North Carolina Tar Heel Rasheed Wallace has retired.

A four time All-Star forward, Wallace decided to end his 15-year NBA career after his Celtics bowed out in Game 7 of the NBA Finals. Wallace played for five teams in his career, but most successful was his tenure with the Detroit Pistons.

After being traded from the Atlanta Hawks mid-season in 2004, Wallace helped the Pistons win their first championship since 1990 in a five-game upset of the Lakers.

Wallace averaged 13 points and nearly eight rebounds per game in that series. He will perhaps be remembered most for his always-publicized confrontations with officials, retiring as the NBA's all-time leader in technical fouls.
