Celtics' Wallace rips teammates

For the majority of the season veteran Boston Celtics F has been disgruntled with the direction of the franchise.  After last evenings loss to the Denver Nuggets, Wallace shared his thoughts once more about the teams' current situation.

“I’m very surprised. Right now, we’re the team that’s all talk,” he said. “We talk about how we want to get better. We talk about things we need to do to get better. It’s easy to go out and practice and do it. Practice doesn’t really apply to anything with making yourself better. When they turn them lights on, when it really counts, when it’s about the team and making the team better and trying to win as a team, we don’t do it.”
“We done met, we done talked, we done did everything, we done argued, fussed, complained, moaned, everything you can do,” he said. “It doesn’t matter in here. It matters out there on the court. And until we can take all the talk and everything that we say in here and apply it to out on the court, it’s useless, it’s basically like talking to the wall.”
“It’s a pride thing man. We know (Randy Foye’s) a shooter, that’s what he does,” Wallace said. “The last two games, Oklahoma City, they probably had five, six dunks in a row on us. Just walking down the middle dunking. It’s not about skills, it’s about pride. Pride and playing as a team, pride and not wanting to be embarrassed. That’s what it comes down to and we’ve got to figure it out.”
