Wallace could retire as worst-ever foul shooter

The Sports Xchange

--Center Ben Wallace may have played the last game of his illustrious 16-year career. Wallace said this would be his last season, then had second thoughts toward the end of the 66-game schedule. If he is finished, he'll go into retirement with four Defensive Player of the Year awards and one unflattering title -- all-time worst free-throw shooter.

He ended the season with a career average of 41.4 percent, including 34 percent this season. Chris Dudley, who played in the league from 1987-2002, holds the distinction of worst foul shooter among retired players with a minimum of 500 games at 45.8 percent.

--Guard Brandon Knight has a good chance to make the NBA's All-Rookie First Team, which would end a long drought for the franchise. Grant Hill (1995) is the last Piston chosen to the All-Rookie First Team. The Pistons had three players chosen to the squad during the previous decade -- Joe Dumars (1986), Kelly Tripucka (1982) and Isiah Thomas (1982).

The Pistons have come close the last four seasons, with three players selected to the All-Rookie Second Team -- Rodney Stuckey (2008), Jonas Jerebko (2010) and Greg Monroe (2011).

"It's one of those things I've got to think about a little bit. It's tough to walk away from the game when you've got so many people who keep asking you to come back. Do I think it's time for me to retire? Yeah. But people are asking me to come back, so obviously they see something in me that I really don't see in myself right now. But we all feel good to be wanted." -- Center Ben Wallace on his retirement plans.
