Ben Wallace is No. 227 in ESPN’s #NBARank


ESPN’s rankings of the top 500 NBA players and incoming rookies continues with Ben Wallace coming in at No. 227.

It’s unfortunate these rankings didn’t come out after Wallace’s mini-resurgence in the 2009-10 season, he would’ve easily beat that ranking. But Wallace dealt with injuries and off-court personal tragedies last season and couldn’t match that 09-10 impact. Hopefully, post-lockout, he has one more productive season before retiring to pursue his ambitious post-basketball goals.

Other Pistons unveiled in the rankings are: Jason Maxiell (239), Brandon Knight (267), Chris Wilcox (330), Kyle Singler (446), Terrico White (472) and Vernon Macklin (498).
