Wallace Plans To Defend After Career

If Ben Wallace has his way, he'll be conducting a different kind of defense when his playing days are over. The Detroit Pistons big man plans to become a defense attorney when he retires. He just doesn't know when that day will come. The more Wallace thinks about retirement, the harder it is to walk away.

He has been discussing plans with his lawyers at his Virginia home. He's also been looking at prospective law schools to pursue a law degree. He does have a bachelor's degree in criminal justice from his college days at Virginia Union. So he has a head start on his post playing career.

I, for one would like to see how this turns out. You never hear about players making plans for their future or talk about furthering their education. Ben is a proud man and a hard worker so I think he can carve out a solid career in the law field. If he's as committed in the courtroom as he is on the basketball court, this mountain of a man will be tough to beat.
