Ben the Bull
Goochland resident Ben Wallace is apparently leaving the Detroit Pistons for the Chicago Bulls, according to news reports over the holiday weekend. It's not official yet, as free agents are not allowed to sign until July 12, but the deal is for four years and $60 million, ESPN says. (The Pistons came up short with $49.6 million, news reports say.) Nazr Mohammed has reached an agreement with the Pistons to fill Wallace's center position, the AP adds.
The 31-year-old four-time NBA defensive player of the year surprised a few folks with the move to the Bulls. Good luck to the VUU graduate.
Oh, and because I just can't resist, here's a link to more bull, er, cow news. This one's out of Charlottesville, but it has universal appeal. Let's all give a prayer of thanks that we live in the big city.
