Wallace To Call It Quits

By  | 

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) -- Ben Wallace insists this is his last season -- without a doubt.
The Detroit veteran says he is looking forward to spending time with his family. The 37-year-old Wallace decided to come back for 2011-12, his 16th season in the NBA. He's now tied with Avery Johnson for the most games played by an undrafted player since the NBA-ABA merger, and Wallace can break that mark Tuesday night when the Pistons host the San Antonio Spurs.
Although he wasn't drafted, Wallace carved out a niche for himself as a tough defender around the basket and a terrific rebounder. He is a four-time NBA defensive player of the year and helped the Pistons win the 2004 championship.
