Reputation Got Rasheed Wallace Tossed?
(Rasheed) Wallace yelled his catchphrase “Ball don’t lie!” — an expression of basketball karma — after Goran Dragic missed the technical free throw and then continued to (profanely) argue his case. He was slapped with another technical and tossed — unfairly, the Knicks claimed.
“I think so. I think so. He’s the only guy in the league that gets a technical for saying ‘Ball don’t lie,’ ’’ said Carmelo Anthony.
“I hate to say that, but in Rasheed’s case I think the reputation is it,’’ Kurt Thomas said.
“I’m sure [reputation factored into the foul calls] a little bit,’’ Tyson Chandler said
