Who, Me?

Ben Wallace reportedly feels like he's being picked on by Bulls coach Scott Skiles.

Ben Wallace

League and team sources told The Chicago Tribune that Wallace feels singled out by Skiles' rules against pregame music, headbands and Wallace's tape-free ankles.

The situation came to a head on Saturday when Skiles pulled Wallace only 2:02 after tip-off against the New York Knicks because the center broke a team rule prohibiting the wearing of headbands.

A source close to Wallace told The Tribune that the big man is annoyed by the headband rule because he wasn't informed about it until after he signed his four-year, $60 million contract with the Bulls.

Hey, guess what--people who sign a 4 year, $60 mil deal with a career line of 6.6 PPG aren't all that common. One might even say that they stand out in a locker room. How's about you go and do something on the court than bitch because someone's being mean to you?

In all fairness, though, headbands ought to be encouraged rather than outlawed.
