The national perspective on Ben Wallace’s blowup

True Hoop speaks what is on every non-Piston fan's mind regarding Friday night's Ben Wallace blowup. Here's a taste:

A local columnist plays it down, a teammate says it's good to have a shake-up every now and again.

What's the lesson of all this? Be a lunch-pail guy. Strap on the hard hat and come to work every day, year in and year out, and eventually you might find yourself in the incredible position of being able to throw a major hissy fit in the face of your boss -- on TV no less -- and everyone will simply give you a freebie.

I'd like Wallace better without this tantrum, but I can't get myself upset about it. It's not like he doesn't "get" it.
