Ben Wallace makes small steps toward law school

WASHINGTON – Ben Wallace will pick up his law-school planning once the season ends and he has a chance to reflect on his career. Until he does that, he’s not even sure when he wants to enroll. But he’s already figured out two small details:

He wants to practice criminal law, and he wants to attend law school somewhere in Virginia, his offseason home.

For now, though, he’s still playing, still impressing.

“It’s unbelievable,” Lawrence Frank said. “Ben amazes me in the sense that the guy, at his age, to be able to play so hard every night – I hope our young guys really appreciate what he does every day, because this guy’s been doing it for 16 years. He treats every day the same way, consummate professional.”

But even though Wallace, who holds a criminal justice degree from Virginia Union, is still focused mainly on basketball, he’s still set on attending law school.

“Oh, yeah,” Wallace said enthusiastically. “No question.”

    I don’t believe he’s going to do this.  It’s work and why does he want work?
     
    I guess I’d take an NBA career now…which he has the option of continuing beyond this year if he wanted to.  He’s had enough of it and wants to shift gears.  I’ve had enough of what he wants to get into and I would like to shift gears as well.
     
    BTW, he and I are just about the same age…we’re both ready for a change I guess.  He has the money to do what he wants…I don’t have a choice.
