Blazers F Gerald Wallace Still Really Mad At Bobcats Over Trade

83
Mike Cranston of the Associated Press reports that Portland Trail Blazers forward Gerald Wallace is still really mad at the Charlotte Bobcats for trading him... ----------------------- "To feel like you're not wanted anymore or you're not good enough for the franchise anymore, it's a slap in the face ... that was a hurtful feeling for me." ... The belief was reinforced when coach Paul Silas told him early on Feb. 24, trade deadline day, that he was safe. "Basically, he told me before the practice that I was good, that no trades were going to go down and I was OK and I didn't have anything to worry about," Wallace said. "Then I get home and bam, I'm traded." ... "I felt like it was a stab in the back, something that I totally didn't see coming," Wallace said. "I was comfortable here. I thought everything was good. We were starting to get guys back healthy and we were starting to make a push." ----------------------- As for Bobcats GM Rod Higgins, Wallace said: "I don't even want to comment on that guy." Brutal. These comments come after Wallace previously vented to the Charlotte Observer. The Blazers play the Bobcats in Charlotte on Friday night. -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
