Ben takes his Fro to the city that “Blows”
The “Windy City” that is…….
Ben Wallace will be wearing a Bulls Jersey. The fact that Ben was “Made in Detroit” obviously held no weight in this decision.
I have thought about this for a few days tossing around both sides.
Bens side, he was disappointed with the change of focus from defense to offense. Ben getting paid way too much to go to Chicago.
On the other hand Ben has wrecked his chances to make it to the finals, let alone win another championship in his career. “Man with small hands” has also lost the love of Detroit. His jersey will not be retired in the Palace. He will not be listed with the greats Isaiah Thomas, Joe Dumars, Pistol Pete. He will disappear into the half empty United Center where the only star ever to be mentioned is Michael “gamblers anonymous” Jordan.
I feel that Ben Wallace has made a bad decision.
The Pistons Bulls rivalry has always had personal meaning to me (my friend is from Chicago).
Now the Pistons Bulls rivalry will be a lesson. Each meeting will remind Ben and the Bulls (who spent way too much money) what terrible mistakes they’ve made.
And Ben, if by some chance you get a chance to look at this, don’t you even think of wearing the Fro in the D again. You wont get a beer to the head, you’ll get clippers!
