How's Ben doing?
Many have wondered how Ben Wallace has done in the first four games of his Cavs' career. He's averaging 8.3 points and 9.0 rebounds and is shooting 60.9 percent from the field.
He's not the same player he once was in Detroit. He never will be. He's 33 years old. The Cavs have to keep an eye on his minutes. But he can still be an effective player. Will he be a defensive stopper? Probably not. But the Cavs' interior defense is top notch.
With Wallace, Joe Smith, Zydrunas Ilgauskas and Anderson Varejao, that group can match up with about any front line in basketball. This team is geared for the playoffs. It's hard to judge the trade until the postseason is over.
