Ben Wallace is spending too much time doing the little things that don’t show up in the box score

Ben Wallace, Chicago's $60 million man who's making roughly $195K a game this year, played 20 minutes on Friday and had exactly zero points, zero rebounds, zero steals and zero blocks. He played 29 minutes on Saturday despite being benched for much of the first quarter. Why was he sitting? It's not immediately clear, but it could be a power struggle with Scott Skiles. Wallace clashing with a coach? Wow, didn't see that coming. [Update via Need4Sheed: The Chicago Tribune confirms that it was Wallace's insubordination that put him on the bench.]
