As for his first season with the Celts, (Gerald) Wallace said, “It’s been great. The experience has been fun. I mean, losing (stinks). It always does. I felt like we’re a lot better than what our record shows. We’ve had some ups and down, some learning curves — not only from the players but also from the coaching staff, as well. So everybody’s learning. Everybody had an adjustment. But for the most part it’s been a great season.”

A better season than he expected when he expressed disappointment at being traded here from the Nets.

“I just hope the fans didn’t take offense to me saying I didn’t want to be here as a part of me saying I didn’t want to be a part of them or the organization,” Wallace said. “My main thing was the rebuilding process. I didn’t want to go through a whole rebuilding process where you’ve got to start all over 13 years into my career. It was nothing toward them.”
