From 1 to 35,535: I'm Wally, I score!

In my last post there were allegations that I use an internet app to find anagrams, a charge to which I vigorously plead guilty. So, this one time only, I am reverting to the old do-it-by hand method. I have to say, I like the anagram I came up with for the name of the player being profiled herein. It's a nice nod to a Timberwolf past.

Alas, Wally Szczerbiak never got to play with Corey Williams.
