Former Detroit Pistons PF/C Rasheed Wallace made an appearance today at the Detroit Pistons’ practice, which was open to the fans. The surprise came shortly after the team was announced to the fans, which shocked many in attendance. Sheed, decked out in a black sweatsuit stopped in and was seen sitting behind the “white” team bench talking to Joe Dumars during the “20 in 2″ drill (make 20 layups in 2 minutes).
There was an audible “Sheeeeeeed” chant when he slapped hands with members of the “white” team before heading back into the locker room area right before the scrimmage.
Over 8,000 fans were in attendance of today’s open practice.
