They started w/ the backcourt of iverson and rip, with iverson at pg. It just didn't workout. What do you expect w/ a idiot like joe d. Even knowing it didn't workout w/ rip and iverson, what does joe d do? Sign Gordon, cause he thought somehow that he and rip would workout
Like I said, you don't trade away the most imp position in the nba. We could've traded any one else and let billups figure out how to utilize them
He was a star
His story and his personality and most importantly his fro made him a superstar
First Sim League Title!
No way in GOD's earth was Ben Wallace a Superstar! No Way. The guy was never double teamed, and was outright disrespected by defenders. Sorry, but even Dennis Rodmam was respected on offense. Couldn't shoot free throws, couldn't handle the ball worth a damn, was an under average passer.
I loved the guy, but when you can't soot, can't dribble, can't pass, and can't make a free throw, then there is no way you can be a superstar unless you are Shaq......even he had handles and could pass!

Exactly! these people only think he's a superstar cause he was on the pistons. They would all have different opinions if he was on another.
I have never seen such a crap offensive player play the game. I mean he had such an ugly shot it was embarrassing. It credits how great the other 4 (rip, billups, tay and sheed) were, with them being double team cause other coaches could care less what ben did
And on top of it all, whenever ben got offfensive rebounds, they are nothing like how drummond just fights for em and grabs em, in other words works for them. Ben would always do this stupid tap it out to mid court to one of our players, he would never actually grab those.
I love him but my goodness, he was not a superstar wtf
And he had only a couple of years where he dominated the league w/ blocks, steals, and rebounds. Don't sit up their an act like he was doing that for his whole career
Ben is a one way player, he could save his energy up on the offensive end and use it toward the defensive end. Not all players in the league have that luxary.
Thats another knock on ben wallace
So what, he's in the same company as lebron, kd, paul, kobe, shaq, duncan, hakeem, howard, robinson???
o my goodness, and we sit up here and diss on other teams for being homers??
