Rasheed Wallace coaching prep hoops? Sounds like a great reality show originally appeared on nbcsportsnorthwest.com
I wish Rasheed Wallace all the luck in the world as he embarks on his new job coaching boys varsity basketball at Jordan High School in Durham, N.C.
High school coaches in all sports have been underpaid and under-appreciated for too many years and Wallace certainly must have something to give the athletes at that school.
I have no reason to believe he won't do a fine job of teaching basketball and life skills to his young players.
But you have to admit the situation certainly sounds as if it would make a very popular reality show.
Wallace is the acknowledged King of Technical Fouls. Will he be able to keep his temper in check with those high school refs? And can he keep his players under control if he goes out of control?
And if his paycheck is a day late, will he march into the principal's office and demand someone "CTC – cut the check."
Will he address those young writers from the school paper after games and tell them "Both teams played hard"?
Will he angrily toss a towel during a timeout at somebody, the way he once famously did to Arvydas Sabonis?
And – my biggest question of all – when it's time to draw up that play for a game-winning shot, will he drop the clipboard and run, the way he used to run away from pressure shots during his tenure with the Trail Blazers?
