Flip Saunders: "The game should be fun"

From Ryan Pretzer on

And that’s why Wallace’s own coach, Flip Saunders, has a similar view of Wallace’s court behavior. "He’s caught some criticism from people from the last game, but I thought he had a great game," Saunders said. "That’s his personality. The game should be fun. Guys that are extremely talented, the game comes somewhat easy to them, that’s kind of their outlet that keeps them motivated. So he’s a guy that’s always been like that and people always question what he does, but he produces."

Agreed. It looks bad because he missed his final shot, but in all the criticism people forget he came through with one of his best games of the season (24 points, nine boards and seven freakin' blocks) on a night too many other people faded.
