It seems that Rasheed and Flip Saunders are squashing any kind of “beef” they had in the past. According to the Detroit News, Flip even went so far as to be a guest speaker at Rasheed’s Basketball Camp.
“The thing about Rasheed when he reacts, whether it’s at me or anybody else, it’s out of competitiveness. It’s not out of spite,” Saunders said. “As I told him, as a coach, I am going to make decisions he might not agree with.
“But one thing I have never done, I have never done anything to disrespect him. The main thing is, he has to be the same way toward his teammates and to me.
That’s good news for Pistons fans because we know that Flip is here to stay (at least for the time being).
One thing you might not know about Rasheed is that he does amazing work in the community. He doesn’t like to make it known, but he does plenty to give back. Right now he’s running his annual Basketball camp for underprivileged kids.
“I just want these kids to learn some basketball and have some fun,” Wallace said as he ran the clock and scoreboard for one of the afternoon’s full-court scrimmages.
“I want them to laugh and have fun; it’s all cool with me.”
And if you missed it (like I did) Pistons Forum.com has Rasheed’s interview from the Stoney and Wojo show yesterday!
