Gerald WALLACE, WALL-ace, Wall-ace, wallace...
That's the way they call his name at Time Warner Cable Arena when Wallace makes another spectacular play, and now they'll call it in the all-star game, too, in Dallas.
The Observer's Rick Bonnell has confirmed a report that Wallace will be announced as an Eastern Conference all-star reserve tonight. As I wrote three weeks ago in this column, this needed to happen.
Wallace has been the best player this season on the Bobcats' best-ever team. The guy is an amazing athlete but, more than that, amazingly tough. I don't see how he plays sometimes with the injuries he has, but he does. Kudos to Wallace, for breaking the Bobcats' oh-for-forever streak in the all-star game.
He'll have a busy weekend in Dallas, too, assuming he stays in the dunk contest that he was invited into as well.
