Player Spotlight: Crash

gerald.jpgGerald Wallace’s game is a thing of beauty. As it stands now his rebounding total is a bit down and his blocks are a bit down. However, his three pointers are way up. It is a bit surprising to see these numbers for Gerald. Who would have thought that he would have more three pointers (1.2/game) than blocks (1.0/game)? Anyway, I don’t think its worthy of a complaint by any means. Again he was a bit sluggish to start the year as he was last year. As it stands in the last month he has torn his opponents apart and I also don’t think that it is a coincidence that the Bobcats have taken out some of the East’s best teams in the process. He has posted a ridiculous 1.6 treys, 25.6 points, 7.6 rebounds, 4.9 assists, 2.4 steals, and 1.2 blocks per game! This guy is seriously every bit of the term en fuego. I guess you can find a negative with his 3.6 turnovers per game the last month but who cares about turnovers? I will gladly take those turnovers with those other numbers. Some might say that right now he is a sell high candidate and it is hard to say anything against that depending on where he was taken in your draft. I honestly think that he should keep this up all year. Maybe not up to these silly numbers that he has been producing but there is no doubt in my mind that he can average 23 points, 7 boards, 3 assists, 2 steals, a block and a three the rest of the year. If you own him you should ride him out for the rest of the year. Wallace is one of the most versatile players in the league and he shows it. His future is off the charts. It is hard to compare his game to anyone and who he will turn into because there is no one else like him. You could compare him to Shawn Marion but Gerald actually has a shot that you don’t cringe every time he shoots and he is one of only two people on the team that are counted on to score. I think that Wallace only has room to improve, and if you want him next year you will have to draft him in one of the first two rounds. Enjoy the ride because you don’t see a talent like this very often in the NBA.
