NBA world reacts to Rasheed Wallace’s comments about LeBron James

By Sanjesh Singh

Former NBA player Rasheed Wallace made the rounds this week about his comments about LeBron James.

Wallace, the No. 4 pick in the 1995 NBA draft, played 16 seasons in the league, making four All-Star appearances along with a title in 2004 with the Detroit Pistons.

As a stretch big, he was a rare commodity in the league at the time, which made him a great player to have. It led to prominent battles against notable players, such as James, who Wallace faced countless times in the Eastern Conference.

However, Wallace’s comments about James on a 2020 episode of the “Million Dollaz Worth of Game” show circulated on Twitter recently:

“He probably would’ve done good with his physical stature, with him being bigger than the majority of the rest of the players. So he probably would’ve held his own, but I don’t think he would be as successful as he is now. It’s a whole different era back then. I couldn’t necessarily say that he would’ve been a beast, but I think he would’ve held his own.”

There were multiple reactions from fans blasting Wallace for his words, so let’s look at some:
