All the hating, but this is actually the right thing to do. if he had a problem with the officials, I have no issue with him expressing it LIKE THIS. In private, not running around in a tirade like a moron.

Rasheed would hack somebody across the arm and still complain, he has no credibility.

Maybe he was just telling the refs they could sleep comfortably if the retirement rumors are true. ;)

The refs were terrible on both sides of the ball all series. I have to give credit where it is due... they might have missed a few in game 7 but they did not allow the whistle to determine who the better team was... THEY LET THEM PLAY. That is what made this game satisfying. It was a boring finals for me and one of the most boring games 7s I have ever seen but they allowed the better team to win. Sheed should be back there thanking the officials as should everyone else because they let them play and that gets lost in all sports as of late. When you walk away from this series you don't think about a missed call here or a missed call there... You think about the defensive domination in the 4th quarter that helped the lakers win this series... Or The endless Hustle by Rondo... or the emergence of KG or fisher hitting another monster 3 when it counted most. Think about big games in sports as of late... The lakers/Suns series... To much officiating... The Saints/Vikings series... To much officiating. The Flyers/Blackhawks Series... To much officiating. That all being said I :clap: the refs for allowing the better team to win the game.

LOS ANGELES -- As Celtics coach Doc Rivers sat at the podium suggesting Rasheed Wallace might have played his final game of his career on Thursday, the 15-year veteran stood outside the locker room of the game officials trying to talk to a group which has been intertwined with much of his career.

It wasn't clear if he was trying to discuss the calls that went against Boston in its Game 7 loss to the Lakers in the NBA Finals.


More on the Celtics

• Send Chris a question

Wallace exited the Boston locker room before it opened to the media and navigated his way toward the team bus before diverting to the official's locker room nearby. He managed to open the door and talk with an unidentified person behind the door, before arena and NBA security ushered him back out.

Wallace stuck his head into the locker room and appeared to say, "Danny, I just want to talk," possibly to referee Danny Crawford, but quickly got removed from the room.

Wallace, wearing sunglasses and carrying his gear, waited about five minutes outside the official's locker room guarded by arena security before departing for the team bus without talking to the officials or media nearby.

The security guard outside the official's locker room declined to comment. Another security guard asked if Wallace had made contact with referee Joey Crawford and was informed that Joey Crawford had already left the area before Wallace arrived.

Wallace did not appear confrontational and repeated that he just wanted to talk. The all-time NBA leader in technical fouls never got the opportunity.

Wallace, who made a spot start in place of injured Kendrick Perkins, registered 11 points, eight rebounds, two blocks, and two assists over 36 gutsy minutes. With Boston trailing 79-76, Wallace fouled out with 25 seconds remaining when whistled for a shooting foul on Kobe Bryant.

Bryant made the free throws that proved to be the difference in an 83-79 triumph in the title contest.

Rivers heaped praise on Wallace for his efforts and suggested it might have been his final NBA game.

"He was a warrior," Rivers said. "I don't know if Rasheed will ever play again. You know, he's one of them. I think he took that out on the floor with him. I think he is thinking about retiring, and I thought you could see that in his play. He was dying out there. When he got the cramps and the strains, he was just trying to figure out a way of staying on the floor.

"We had to keep subbing him for one minute and two minutes, and I thought the reason we got up early was because of Rasheed Wallace. We got it low in the post, he started scoring, and I thought what happened was late in the game he got tired and had the injuries and we couldn't go down anymore, and I think that had a huge impact on how we were playing. We had to go away from the post almost because of fatigue. It's the first time all year that you can actually say, at the end of the day, we were old at the end of the game because we didn't have a enough bodies. I thought it hurt us."

Wallace signed a three-year, $19 million contract last offseason. He stands to make $6.3 million if he returns next season and $6.8 million in 2011-12.

Asked about Wallace's future, Kevin Garnett didn't sound optimistic about his return.

"Not a good one. ... I see a lot of myself in him and we have a lot of the same ties and a lot of the same characteristics," he said. "Both the class of '95 ... so for him to come in and give his thanks and his regards after a loss like this ... it was a difficult night."

Well, if he's going to complain, it's better he do it after games than during the games when it can kill the team.

The thing that sucks about Rasheed is, for ever good foul they give him, they also give him a bad one. His name alone gives me a lot of extra fouls. He will NEVER get the benefit.

It's what happens when you go absolutely nuts about a "blown call" when you clearly hack a players arms. He basically lost himself all credibility by arguing calls that are no-brainers.

It sucks, but yelling and abusing the guys who you want something from is never a smart idea, even if they are supposed to block that stuff out and make the right call every time. Jumping around and screaming like an animal mating call does not help his cause.

This.

I don't mind a player complaining when he has a legit case, but Rasheed cries after every single call.

Boston fans should be proud of Sheed. He hates the regular season. That's why his numbers weren't the best during. He showed up for the Finals. He played very ****ing hard. Boston should tell Sheed to try to lose 10-15 pounds in the off-season and sign him for 1 more year. Boston might have another year left. I would draft a big with their 19th pick also. There will be some productive bigs left at 19. They could still beat the Cavs and the Magic next year in my opinion. Next year is their last shot with their current players. I think next year is LA's last shot too. Boston needs Sheed though. The refs did suck I don't blame him. But you can't discredit LA's title because of the refs, that's just making excuses. I felt the same way in 04-05 when the Piston's played a game 7 in San Antonio. The refs seem to take us right out of the game. There is a reason why team's want home court advantage. La had home court and it paid off. I thought game 7 was the best game I ever watched.

Because he complains on mostly all calls even on the most obvious calls. I've seen plays where he was called for a foul and screams and yells and when you see the replay it was an obvious foul so how can refs give him the benefit of the doubt?

Totally agree. But if he had a problem with the way games were being reffed, he should have done this earlier in the series instead of waiting until it didn't matter anymore. Instead, as you put so nicely, he ran around in a tirade like a moron all series and waited to be (hopefully) civil until after the series.

I will add this: if Sheed does retire like some are saying, he was an extremely enjoyable player to watch. He had a great career.

Because as I said, his name alone will always get him the extra fouls. There is no benefit for Rasheed. Even on times when he doesn't deserve a foul, they'll probably give him one because it's Rasheed. They're not going to help that guy at all - If it even SOMEWHAT looks like a foul, but turns out not to be, they'll call him on it. And they'll T him up as quick as anyone in the league, too.

And that's all his own fault. I'm not trying to help the guys case.

I disagree. Throw out the whole thing about his "name"

The guy has no credibility at all. He complains way too much especially when it is a clear cut foul and his running like a monkey yelling so how can the refs give him the benefit of the doubt when he is crying on almost every single play. The refs were actually lenient with him because with the way he was acting every time they called him for a foul, he could of easily been called for a tech but they let it go numerous times.

Point blank is you are not gonna get the benefit of the doubt by the refs if you complain on every call, either a good one or bad one.

That's exactly my point, how are you disagreeing with me?

My point is exactly what you're saying: Even if it's not a foul, they're still likely to call the foul on you even if it's a bad call. That's Rasheed's own undoing.
