CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Calling it a "stab in the back" and "slap in the face," Gerald Wallace hasn't got over being blindsided by Michael Jordan's Charlotte Bobcats.

Back in Charlotte on Thursday for the first time since being traded last month to the Portland Trail Blazers, the last original member of the Jordan-owned Bobcats and the franchise's only All-Star acknowledged he's still adjusting to the most shocking event of his professional career.

"To feel like you're not wanted anymore or you're not good enough for the franchise anymore, it's a slap in the face," said Wallace, whose new team faces the Bobcats Friday. "That was a hurtful feeling for me."

Gerald will be aight. This type of thing comes with the business. Honestly, the split was best for both sides. MJ knows whats he doing

i agree free some cap space and like i said the 2 extra 1st rounders will be great. at least he is playing for a decent team,and not clippers or somebody.

I'd be okay with HB, but he wouldnt make it to us, and I doubt he's coming out this year.
Crash had peaked, and was on the decline. We got rid of him at the right time, and got 2 1st round picks to go with it. We might struggle the rest of this year, but MJ is too competitive to let us stay at the bottom too long.

This isn't the NFL. First round picks in the 20's are not good.

I miss Gerald, and its hard to watch games without him in a Bobcats uniform, but he hasn't been the same player the 'cats gave that nice contract to in some time.

Hopefully he goes deep into the playoffs with Portland, but he's just as culpable in this fiasco as the Bobcats with his lackluster play ever since last year's all star game. He's a great player, but he shies away from the spotlight or something. Becomes a wallflower.

Still this situation makes me sad. :(

Rajon Rondo, Wilson Chandler, David Lee, Aaron Brooks were all drafted in the late first round. just to name a few, any time you can get young talent is a good thing. so fail maybe.
