Former UNC Tar Heel Rasheed Wallace told the ultimate Dean Smith story on a recent episode of All The Smoke.

Smith was known for being the only coach who could hold Michael Jordan under 20 points, and Wallace soon figured that out one day at practice when the Hall of Famer stopped Sheed after he took a jumper without passing first.

(Via All The Smoke):

Smith: “You think you can hit that shot?”

Wallace: “Yeah.”

Smith: “Can you hit it more than three times?”

Wallace: “Yeah.”

Smith: “Give him the ball!”

Wallace: (Makes three straight jumpers)

Smith: “Stop! That’s a bad shot! You shouldn’t have shot it anyway! Next! Let’s go!”
