Apparently Rasheed Wallace decided to come out of retirement to join the New York Knicks for two reasons — to win a championship and to scream at people who miss free throws. The 2012-2013 season is only a few weeks old, but we can already say heckling opponents after missed free throws is Wallace’s thing.
As you can see from the video above that @Jose3030 shared with us on Tuesday night, Wallace yelled “Ball don’t lie!” after Austin Rivers missed a free throw in the first quarter of the Knicks’ win over the New Orleans Hornets. The miss came after Wallace was called for a blatant reach-in foul on Rivers, so we’ll have to assume he didn’t mean “ball don’t lie” in the sense that it wasn’t really a foul and that’s why Rivers missed.
Last week, Wallace came up with his own nickname for Arron Afflalo and yelled it after he missed a free throw. Is this something that we’re going to be seeing all season long? It certainly looks like it.
