On Wednesday, Ball Don't Lie will celebrate its fifth birthday. We were the first to publish under the Yahoo! Sports Blogs canon, and I am very proud and more than a little emotional to have been part of every step along the way.
New York Knicks center Rasheed Wallace, apparently, is feeling the same way. His tribute to our anniversary comes a little early, but apparently Sheed couldn't wait until Dec. 5 to wish us the very best as we head into our second half-decade of serving you with what you think you demand as an NBAnik.
(Also, Rasheed Wallace was thrown out of a matinee game on Sunday for yelling "BALL DON'T LIE," taking in his second technical foul seconds after earning his first by needlessly hammering Luis Scola after being called for a personal foul.)
Cap-doff, Jamie Mottram; who chose the name "Ball Don't Lie."
Deep bow, you. Thank you, readers.
