Rasheed Wallace is old school. The four-time NBA All-Star, who retired for good in 2013, played a bruising game. He averaged 14.4 points, 6.7 rebounds and 1.3 blocks in his career, but Wallace is perhaps best known for being the NBA's all-time leader in technical fouls with 317.
Sheed still believes in getting work done the traditional way. He showed that this weekend by delivering water to the people of Flint, Michigan.
Wallace, a Philadelphia native, attended North Carolina, spent his prime in Portland, played five and a half seasons with the Detroit Pistons from 2004-2009. Wallace won his lone championship with the team, and he returned as an assistant coach for 2013-14.
The video comes from a collection of social media posts by ESPN's Rachel Nichols. Nichols and Stephen Jackson, a regular on Nichols' "The Jump" and a nemesis to Wallace during the height of the Pistons-Pacers rivalry (they were also teammates for one game as Hawks in 2003-04), accompanied Wallace to Fint. The group bought out the water stock at a Walmart and a Target to deliver to individuals suffering from the Flint Water Crisis.
Back in February, Wallace reportedly drove a truck filled with water from North Carolina to Flint.

Wallace could just send checks to Flint, but instead he shows face. Nice work, Sheed.
Ball don't lie.
