Gerald Wallace (Charlotte Bobcats) Traded to Portland

Michael Jordan: "Why do you wear that arm sock?  When I played the game we just wore sweat bands.  And oh by the way...we just shipped you across the country to the Trailblazers in exchange for the Joel Przybilla and draft picks."

Reports are conflicting right now as Yahoo! sports reports the draft pick is a 2nd round pick.  CBS Radio is reporting 2 1st round picks.  If it's 2 1st round picks then I'm OK w/ the deal.  I hate to see Wallace go as he was a lot of fun to watch. 

From a cardboard perspective who else (outside maybe D.J. Augustine) will show up in future basketball card releases.  I swear it seemed like Wallace was the only Bobcats player not in his rookie season that appeared in game used & autographed insert sets.

I wish you well on the west coast Gerald.  You'll be missed in the Queen City.


  1. I keep hoping the bobcats will turn the corner....sigh...maybe we'll draft someone great

  2. Joel is one of my favorites (though he's pretty limited in what he can do now, healthwise) and I really enjoyed watching Dante Cunningham play. I like the energy that Wallace brings to the court, but it remains to be seen how this will work out on my side of things.
