The sun is shining. The sky is blue. And it’s official, Gerald Wallace is in Portland!
After a long flight from Charlotte, Wallace had a smile on his face as he walked toward a cheering crowd, Trail Blazers flags, foam fingers and a sign reading “Welcome to Rip City Gerald.”
The six-foot-seven All-Star was welcomed to Rip City by the Trail Blazers front office staff (Rich Cho donned a red Adidas track suit and it was awesome,) a group of employees and a few fans. I got the privilege of being part of the welcoming committee and scored the first interview with Wallace as a Trail Blazer!
We chatted about Portland fans, the energy in the Rose Garden and what he’s plans to bring to the team.
P.S. He blogged for the Bobcats. Maybe we’ll be seeing some goodies from Crash himself. Keep your fingers crossed!
