Well, Detroit built their franchise around Big Ben and the results are well known. He is the face of the Piston franchise. The entire state of Michigan embraces this guy. His character both on and off the court really inspire Piston followers. "Fear the fro"RSP83 said:Yao.
From basketball perspective:
Ben Wallace is nice. But, I wouldn't start a franchise around him. Ben block shots, rebounds, and hustle. But, when he's not on the defensive end, I don't know what I'm going to do with him. Don't get me wrong, it's nice to have Ben on my team. But, over Yao? I don't think so. Yao is just a better basketball player. Now, if say Ben is a Houston Rockets in place of Yao Ming, would T-Mac play for the Rockets?
