Since the new/old Ben Wallace looks a little different from the last time we saw him in a Pistons uni, I thought it be best he get a tooning update. Now I didn’t feel it necessary (at this point just yet) to add the few scarce gray hairs I saw on his head.
So now that he’s decided on donning the #6 in the red, white an blue it only fitting I show you the new toon. Just wondering if the decision was as easy a 3+3=?
Thanks to team Need4Sheed member Mannie32 for keeping an eye on the Pistons Roster to make sure we didn’t miss it. Heck they didn’t even announce it over at Pistons.com yet.
We have a little update, from Brother Curlin in the comments… “This Yahoo page on the pistons has him as number 9 ” Hmmm… I’m going to go with Pistons.com over yahoo but you never know.
Awesome! Nice job on the toon!
Stuckey didn’t give up #3?
i thought he chose 3×3= 9, not 3+3= 6.. whatever though, cuz Big Ben will be loved in the D once more
I hate the number 6.
oh dear lord
hooper has his own rap – http://www.nba.com/pistons/video/2009/08/27/hooper_highlights.pistons/index.html
This Yahoo page on the pistons has him as number 9
9 is good.
3 + 3 + 3
sorry but it doesn’t look like him
Yeah, at least I’m not the only one who don’t recognize the Ben Wallace in him.
Why didn’t they give him Sheed’s old number…they could sell all the Jerseys left over and they would all still say Wallace????
That would have worked for me then all i had to do was rock rasheed jersey and tell everyone it was wallace
i hope stuckey must give up the number 3.i like to see big ben wearing jersey number 3 again
Looks good, but the black hair is too dark. You should fade it out a little bit if you wanna make it more realistic.
maybe he didn’t ask for number 30??
looks good, but he needs the fro!
I think it looks just like him, I think we are just not used to the way he looks without the fro.
was my comment deleted just because i said it looks nothng like ben?????
I deleted nothing…
why does the yahoo sports page say that Chris Wilcox will wear the number 99?
ay natalie. when ben was traded to the suns his numbers was changed to 9. i checked and its nothing to worry about. cuz when iverpiss got traded here they put his number as 23
it’s awsome nat~~~
Not even close.
im sorry, but I believe #6 is a retired number hun. it goes to lanier or some old skool piston. check it out to correct me if u dare!
im sorry sweetie, I stand corrected on my own behalf… Lanier had #16. I wonder y no other Piston iin the past had that number. I bought a customized jersey back in ’04… well maybe he will get the 6. but as far as my jersey, Mr Malo is #6! my bad.
i thought Bob Lanier was #6 at first too .
The cartoon doesn’t look like Ben Wallace. I vote for a more realistic redo!
Ok then. Retired Pistons numbers:
2 – Chuck Daly; 4 – Joe Dumars; 11 – Isiah Thomas; 15 – Vinnie Johnson; 16 – Bob Lanier; 21 – Dave Bing; 40 – Bill Laimbeer
I second that
I third lol 🙂
Nobody wore #6 huh?
Bill Ebben, Detroit, Shellie McMillon, Billy Kenville, Dan Doyle, Khalid Reeves, Terry Mills, “Pepe” Sanchez “Flip” Murray,
Why would he , he’s been loyal to the pistons so far , what about ben ? O awsome now come back when you lose your legs
He probably chose 6 because Stuckey has 3, Dumars retired 4 and Daye has 5.
That’s practicle, but it would save fans money, which would obviously mean the franchise would lose money. Therefor, I doubt they’d suggest it.
espn list him as 6 too.
and to whoever suggested 30, he wore #30 with the bullets/wizards, so it makes more sense than the people are giving you credit for.
the franchise would not lose money because they would not need to manufacture many more jerseys and they could sell the old sheed jerseys for full price.
Add this myspace page … firstname.lastname@example.org ,. Pistons fans ,, Ben Wallace wearing number 6 is cool ,, I can dig it … Hopefully he starts with villanueva , tayshaun , Richard ” rip it up ” Hamilton and Ben Gordon as our point guard ,,,, damn that’s a nice starting 5 … Stuckey can be the 6 th man …
