If tonight’s season finale is really the 16-year veteran’s swan song, he’ll go out as a Pistons starter.
Over his mild objections.
“He wanted to come off the bench,” Frank said, a blue headband on in honor of Big Ben after the Pistons’ final shootaround of the season Thursday morning. “But that’s a non-discussion starter. He’s starting.”
Man, I hope photo evidence of Frank in a headband is online soon. Honestly, I’ve linked Lawrence Frank all year mainly because he’s not John Kuester. But both starting Wallace in what could be his final game and making himself (I assume) look silly by wearing a headband in support of one of the greatest defensive players in league just made me like him more. Add this to my coach of the year argument.
