Rasheed Wallace, a Philly native and Simon Gratz grad, is known more for his ever-growing list of technical fouls than his skill set, at least to the casual basketball fan.
During his 15-year career, 'Sheed had been previously ejected 30 times and collected more than 300 technical fouls. He may have saved his best for number 31 - his first since his return to the NBA.
After picking up a technical foul after just one minute and 25 seconds of playing time, Wallace yelled, "Ball don't lie," when the ensuing free throw was missed. Sure, it isn't the most offensive ejection of his career, but perhaps that is what makes it the best.
