Gerald: “Guys are content with the situation we are in & I’m f—— pissed off about us losing, especially losing the way we are losing.”

Gerald Wallace has never been shy about how much he hates losing — you can hear it in his baritone after every loss — but has never derided his Brooklyn teammates for contentedness before tonight’s 108-93 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks.
After an 11-4 start, the Nets have skidded back to .500 by losing 10 of their last 13 games. Wallace is averaging 11.1 points and 6.9 rebounds in 34.2 minutes per game, shooting 44.1% from the field. Despite his relentless energy that birthed the nickname “Crash,” the team has struggled with Wallace on the floor this season.
