Rasheed Wallace, Captured In One 56-Second Sequence

Perhaps lost in the action of last night's Knicks-Heat game was the sequence you see above. Nothing all that exciting happens in these 56 seconds, but they do offer a glimpse at just how wonderfully out of shape and unable to give a fuck Rasheed Wallace is. Let's break down his play in this nearly minute-long clip.

  • Sets a half-hearted screen for Pablo Prigioni
  • Catches a pass from Prigioni at the three-point line, immediately jacks up a shot
  • Jogs back on defense, even though his shot didn't go in
  • ...
  • ...
  • 13 seconds later, with the Knicks still possession of the ball, Wallace finally comes walking back into the frame
  • Jason Kidd misses a shot, which Wallace makes no attempt to rebound, and he runs back on defense
  • Mike Miller misses a layup, which 'Sheed makes an attempt to rebound before deciding to just let Prigioni take it
  • Starts walking up the court to get on offense
  • ...
  • ...
  • Receives a pass at the top of the key and immediately sends the ball to Steve Novak
  • Shoves Shane Battier in the chest for no reason, somehow draws a foul

But you know what? 'Sheed still poured in 12 points and grabbed eight rebounds. He also did this. He had a great game. He had a 'Sheed game.
