Why did Rasheed Wallace want to chat with ref?

Fri, Jun 18

After the Celtics' Game 7 loss to the Lakers in the NBA Finals on Thursday, Boston's Rasheed Wallace was seen heading into the referees' locker room saying, "Danny, I just want to talk."

Presumably, Wallace was trying to speak to referee Dan Crawford, but he was removed from the room by security.

Page 2 takes a few educated guesses at what Wallace wanted to discuss:

• Would Crawford T him up one more time, so he could retire with a ceremonial suspension?

• Did Crawford see that weird guy singing on "The Bachelorette"?

• Would it be OK to add a line for Crawford on his Family Talk plan, just so he wouldn't burn his anytime minutes staying in touch?

• Michael Jordan's moustache in that Hanes commercial

• Once and for all ... are Dan and Joey Crawford related?

• Wanted to file formal protest because Adam Morrison now has two rings to his one.
