Today there was a good piece in the MetroWest Daily on Wally. His rehab has gone well but he will probably never be totally pain free at this point in his career. He shook off reports that his knees are bone on bone and said that there is some cartilage left.
"When it's bone-on-bone," he said, "then you are talking microfracture surgery, and I didn't have that."
In spite of his excitement about working out and playing well, he was hampered by a slight post workout limp.
"This is the first test I have played through the last three days and it feels pretty good," he said late in the week. "It's probably just the standard soreness from running up and down and putting this much strain on it."
Hopefully he will be ready by training camp to play without having to worry about his knee and without it causing him to alter his game as it did last season.
Along with Scott's article, there is a two part interview posted on FSNE. In Part 1 you can see a clip of the new slimmed down Al Jefferson working out and he sure looks good. In Part 2 Wally talks about the teams talent and depth and he tells how excited he is to play with Telfair. [More] source:MetroWest Daily and FSNE
I'm looking forward to seeing Wally run with Bassy and get open looks at the basket on fastbreaks. I can't really say why I feel this way, but I'm feeling that Wally will be a better fastbreak player than Pierce. I have discounted Pierce's fastbreak ability in the past, and he really seemed to be more active in fastbreaking last year than in year's past. But I just get the feeling that Wally will find better chemistry with Bassy on the breaks.
