The mystery of Rasheed’s jerseys revealed

New, comments

Yesterday I mentioned a conspiracy theory bouncing around the internets that suggested the lack of new Rasheed Wallace jerseys for sale at Pistons.com and NBA.com was a sign he was about to be traded.

Fortunately, Pistons director of strategic communications (and long-time friend of DBB) Dave Wieme strategically communicated that wasn't the case. From his comment on my original post:

Hey Matt, although I got a big kick out of that response from Aaron, the truth is that Rasheed decided to go back to his #30 and we were re-stocking for the season. No reason given by ‘Sheed as to why the change, but he is going back to the number he has worn most of his career.

And no truth to the rumor that he gets any cut on merchandise sales!!
