I’m Ballin’ with the Man in the Mirror

BOBCATS_06

Gerald Wallace returned to the line up last night to deftly lead the Bobcats to a 110-90 blowout at the hands of the Heat. Funny thing is, I didn’t realize he was gone. I watched the Boston-Charlotte game on Saturday and I could have sworn I saw him out there. He was wearing #23 which looked a little weird but that was definitely him. Actually, I also think I saw him wearing a suit on the bench. But he was definitely playing. But also definitely wearing a suit. But he wasn’t playing in a suit… I’m confuzzled.

What? Gerald Wallace was really injured? Then who was that guy who played exactly like him during the Boston game? Jason Richardson? The Bobcats traded for Jason Richardson? Even though they have a player who is exactly like him in Gerald Wallace? And J-Rich is costing them over $11 million this year? Whoa… Weird… Am I high right now?

Stats through 13 games:

Richardson: 16.9 Pts, 2.6 Ast, 5.6 Reb, .413 FG%, 1.21 Stl, .43 Blk

Wallace: 18.5 Pts, 1.8 Ast, 4.8 Reb, .451 FG%, 2 Stl, .77 BLK

Imagine what it’s like for the rest of the ‘Cats in the locker room or during a shoot-around. It has to be like working with the Olsen twins. Maybe Gerald and J-Rich will solve some wild caper together during the off-season.

Worse would be an intra-squad game. How many times do you think RayRay intends to pass the ball to J-Rich and accidentally passes it to G-Wall? 5? 10? 30?  They must have some way to distinguish between the two during scrimmages. Maybe different color headbands or something, similar to how The Undertaker wore purple gloves and Ted DiBiase’s fake Undertaker wore gray gloves; Paul Bearer wouldn’t have known which Undertaker to yell “Ooooohhhhhh Yeeeeessssss!” at otherwise.

Seriously though, are we sure they’re not the same person? I’m going to have to go to a Bobcats game and touch the wound in J-Rich’s side before I believe.
