Say what you will about Rasheed, Need4Sheed knows the real deal.

NEW YORK, May 17, 2006 – In recognition of Rasheed Wallace‘s outstanding efforts in the community, and for his on-going philanthropic work, the NBA announced today it has honored the Pistons All-Star with the Community Assist Award for the month of April. This is the second time Wallace has earned the honor, winning the award in February of 2005.

Despite being in the midst of a playoff run, Rasheed Wallace found the time for his community work and during April he joined forces with the Detroit Pistons to support the “Let’s Make Dreams Come True for Children” Gala and Auction to benefit The Rasheed A. Wallace Foundation.

Wallace and his wife Fatima hosted the event, which raised more than $100,000 for his foundation and included unique memorabilia auctions, including Pistons framed jerseys, photos, and autographed game-worn shoes by Wallace and other NBA superstars such as LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Gala, which was held at the Royal Park Hotel in Rochester Hills, Mich., honored Pistons President of Basketball Operations Joe Dumars for his outstanding efforts as a humanitarian and professional.

    ive been thinking about the stons latley and ive become aware that the pistons are playing more like a bunch of to-good-for-the-nba type players rather than the unselfish pistons were used to..has fame gone to their head?..ive also noticed they no longer rely on the defense at the end of games like they used to..they seem to be letting the other team score at will, then try to out score them at the end of the game..
