Rasheed Wallace once called out Bill Walton

Bill Walton spent his career with the Portland Trail Blazers and Boston Celtics. He won a championship with each team. However, his amazing career didn’t stop Rasheed Wallace from once confronting him over the “Jail Blazers” moniker he and the media had bestowed upon Wallace’s Trail Blazers team of the late 1990s and early 2000s.

During a recent interview, Wallace recalled his frustrations with the nickname provided to his Trail Blazers team and how it led him to call out Walton over his participation in how the team was portrayed in the media. Of course, Walton was an influential figure with Portland fans, so that incident likely created some issues within the fanbase.

Wallace’s comments came during an interview with the “Underdog NBA” YouTube channel. He explained why he was frustrated and what led him to confront the two-time NBA champion.
