The Boston Celtics put up a good game against the Los Angeles Lakers in Game Seven of the NBA Finals.

Rasheed Wallace was selected as a starter in the absence of Kendrick Perkins and performed at his finest.

He knocked down a surprise three-pointer after a time-out late in the game. But the Lakers would come back and do the same.

Rasheed Wallace stood outside the referee locker-room following the loss and spoke with the referees.

He asked nothing about why certain fouls were called, but if they had seen where his one and only comb for his hair was. 

Wallace misplaced his comb during Game 1 of the Finals and hasn't fixed his hair since. The Boston forward is one of those very superstitious players that believes that he can only use one comb throughout his entire NBA career.

This could lead to a possible Rasheed Wallace retirement or it could send Wallace into an asylum if he doesn't find that comb. 

Doc Rivers spoke to the media about his last conversation with Rasheed.

"Rasheed had a mental block when it came to the last minute of the game. He realized that his hair was a mess and he needed to find his comb. That caused him to foul out and immediately go on the hunt for his property," Rivers said.

Rasheed Wallace was last spotted picking up every piece of confetti at the Staples Center in hopes of finding his comb.

Several reports say that he could be headed to a barbershop to get it all taken care of and possibly move on. That would be a big step in Rasheed Wallace's life.
