Rescinding Rasheed

Posted By Mike Petraglia On December 22, 2009 @ 8:06 pm In General | No Comments

Tuesday was a big day for Rasheed Wallace.

Not only did he make his first start of the season – giving Kevin Garnett the night off to rest his right thigh – he caught a break on Tuesday when he had one of his 10 technical fouls removed from the official record. On Nov. 29 in Miami, Wallace said, “and one!” after he thought he was fouled after making a basket at the end of the first quarter.

He was assessed the technical by Bennett Salvatore.

“He said [he would rescind] right away,” Rivers said on Tuesday [1]. “He┬ásaid it at halftime that they would rescind it. He told me something I didn’t know. When they rescind a tech, it still has to go to the league and it still has to be approved. They don’t have to rescind it.”

But taking away the one tech didn’t satisfy Wallace. He feels there are several more that need to be reviewed.

“No, I’m not happy because there’s still some more that hopefully they can look at,” Wallace explained [2]. “That wasn’t the only one we were talking about. That one got rescinded that fast because it was referee who said he was going to do it. I’m still seeing what the outcome is on the others but I know it won’t be anytime soon for the simple fact they’re in [collective bargaining agreement] meetings. I’m not worried about it yet.”

Wallace was rung up twice for arguing and ejected from the game against Philadelphia on Friday, a game the Celtics lost, 98-97.

Those two remain on the record, now giving Wallace nine for the season. An automatic suspension is levied at 16 technicals and every two technicals after.
