Rasheed Wallace: It’s Going to Be Fun for the Celtics

Rasheed Wallace says the Celtics are ready to get the preseason underway.

"With the caliber of guys on the team," Wallace told the Boston Globe, "with Paul [Pierce], Kevin [Garnett], Ray [Allen], Big Baby [Glen Davis], a whole lot of guys, it’s going to be fun. We’re looking forward to it. We’re pretty much tired of beating up on each other and we’re looking forward to that first [exhibition] game against Houston [Oct. 7].

"The younger guys are ready, they’re in the gym working hard every day, and it’s going to work out for us, in my opinion."

Wallace has spent time getting used to the community in Boston, which he described as much different only cities.
