2. Rasheed Wallace is the gift to the NBA that keeps on giving. In the middle of New York’s win over New Orleans last night, Wallace shared some of his wisdom with rookie Austin Rivers.

When Rivers missed the first of his two free throws, Rasheed bellowed to the heavens the one fundamental truth of basketball, “BALL DON’T LIE.” Sheed has a history of doing this — he once even told an opposing coach the ball doesn’t lie — and so far the ball’s never lied. Sheed knows the ball won’t lie, so he does not need to play defense on Austin Rivers.

Now, you might be thinking “Rasheed taunted Austin Rivers! That should be a violation!” — but Rasheed did not taunt Austin Rivers. Rasheed “didn’t direct that toward nobody,” and he can yell all he wants. Ball don’t lie.
