To many, the New York Knicks' recent signing of Rasheed Wallace has invoked curiosity, confusion, and somewhat hysteria about the direction of the franchise. With Amare Stoudemire, Marcus Camby, and Kurt Thomas already in the fold (and the option of Melo sliding over to the 4 if need-be), the team's hole at power forward was probably smaller than the patch on Rasheed's head.
He's a volatile personality, a historic "bad boy" that could potentially poison the already inflated egos and supposed tough guys in the Knicks locker room. And his age doesn't exactly dismiss the notion that the Knicks are a dinosaur-filled roster chasing grandiose, "win-now" championship dreams. Sheed last played in the NBA during the 2010 NBA finals for the Boston Celtics.
