The NBA season is fast approaching and with it comes speculation about how the Celtics new lineup will perform under baby-faced new coach Brad Stevens.

Of course, all those questions will now be taking a back seat to one immensely more important question: How does Gerald Wallace sound so much like a didgeridoo?

Now, if you don't know what a didgeridoo is, the short answer is that it's an Australian wind instrument that essentially functions as a wooden trumpet. Like the name, the sound is very distinct and when Wallace spoke at the Celtics media day this week (at about the 40 second mark in the video below), the comparison was uncanny.

For comparison, here is an actual didgeridoo.

Now, the Celtics almost certainly performed a physical on Wallace before signing him, but it seems like they may have missed something because there's a good chance he's got a didgeridoo stuck in his throat.

And, of course, because the Internet just couldn't resist, here is Wallace's interview remixed to sound even more like a didgeridoo.
