Gerald Wallace Not Excited About "7th Man" Role Off Bench for Boston Celtics

Written by 

BOSTON -- Crash was relegated to the bench Monday as the Boston Celtics got their first win of the season against the Utah Jazz and talked to CLNS Radio's Jared Weiss about his disappointment. Wallace played well in limited minutes, but was discouraged and seemingly offended that he was being used as a "7th Man," as he called it, at this stage of his career.

While Wallace wasn't excited about it before the game, his comments after the game were more positive and understanding. He shows a reluctant acceptance of the choice that Stevens made, but was pretty clear that he does not think he should be coming off the bench. Wallace has not been afraid to speak his mind so far this season and it wouldn't be surprising if he continues to do so.
