Retired Rasheed Wallace captured barely dunking on video

Rasheed Wallace retired at the end of last season with the New York Knicks after a 17-year playing career that also included stints with Washington, Portland, Atlanta, Detroit and Boston.

Wallace later joined the Pistons this season as an assistant coach. The 39-year-old power forward may not be as dominating as he once was on the court, but he proved to be just as entertaining.

Wallace has recently been captured on video, showing off with player Tony Mitchell at the practice, where both tried to dunk the ball. Mitchell did a windmill jam, while Wallace…well, watch for yourselves.

Wallace holds career averages of 14.4 points, 6.7 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.3 blocks and 1 steal during a 14-year career with the Bullets, Blazers, Hawks, Pistons, Celtics and Knicks. He played in total of 1109 NBA games (started 956).

The Pistons and 38-year old Wallace, had been in discussions in June about a player development role with the franchise he helped lead to an NBA championship in 2004.

Wallace eventually agreed to a two-year deal to join the Detroit Pistons‘ coaching staff, ESPN reported in July.
