Gerald Wallace slams Celtics teammates

After a good December in which they briefly led the Atlantic Division, the Boston Celtics are losing again. Veteran forward Gerald Wallace is not happy about it, and unloaded on his teammates after a 129-98 loss to the Denver Nuggets. From The Boston Globe:

“I’m very surprised. Right now, we’re the team that’s all talk,” he said. “We talk about how we want to get better. We talk about things we need to do to get better. It’s easy to go out and practice and do it. Practice doesn’t really apply to anything with making yourself better.

When they turn them lights on, when it really counts, when it’s about the team and making the team better and trying to win as a team, we don’t do it.”

This isn’t the first time Wallace has lashed out after a loss this season. In November, he accused teammates of caring more about their stats than about winning.

Wallace arrived in Boston from the Brooklyn Nets to make the money work in the Kevin Garnett/Paul Pierce trade. Boston is rebuilding, and the veteran isn’t a fit for a team trying to get into the lottery.

Unfortunately, Wallace is making $10.1 million this season as well as in each of the next two. It will be hard to find another team willing to take on that kind of commitment in a trade if the Celtics want him out of TD Garden.
