Sheed May Call it Quits

Posted · 20 Comments

The Associated Press

Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers says that center Rasheed Wallace is probably going to retire.

Rivers said on WEEI-AM on Monday that Wallace told him before Game 7 of the NBA finals that he believed it was the last game of his career.

Wallace has two years left on the contract he signed with the Celtics last summer.

The 35-year-old would finish with 15,860 points and 7,321 rebounds in a 15-year career. The volatile big man was also the most ejected player of his era, with 30 ejections since such records started being kept in 1992.

He played with four teams, winning the NBA title with the Detroit Pistons in 2004.

So…No Need4Sheed?

I guess he’ll have a bit more leisure time.

    Until we find The next missing piece, Like he was, That helps us win another Championship, There will always be a Need4Sheed!

  2. DEL says:

    Thanks Sheed for everything!!! He was just awesome in the finals

  3. tim* says:

    I loved Sheed even as a Celtic. I hope he gives it one more year, but imagine how awesome he’d be as a NBA commentator sitting next to Sir Charles. He’d make a Cavaliers blowout win fun to watch (almost)

  4. Lori says:

    Too bad he couldn’t retire as a Piston, since he will always be associated with us.

    http://www.nba.com/pistons/features/truebluepistons_100622.html from pistons.com a very interesting article. i can only pray this is how its going to go down on thursday.i would give up prince for a choice between favors or cousins. how about you guys?

  6. Seto says:

    If that´s the end, then we should thank Sheed for everything he has done for Pistons. He is my favorite player,surely not the best but great player with passion and love for the game…and that´s what sport should be about

  7. ripmotown says:

    Would LOVE to have Sheed come back to Detroit to join the coaching staff. Just imagine the influence on the young players with both Ben and Sheed!!!

  8. junior says:

    @ripmotown u kidding? his influence? of what laziness? unwillingness to do what is neccesary? (play down low and not throw up 7 three pointers a game). his awesome rebounding ethic? maybe that awesome ability to stay calm in times of pressure? well ya i see your point now maybe we should bring him back, then we could ruin all our young players that joed made sure to get with high morals, work ethic and just pure heart/hustle. that would be sweet!!! im just imagining it now. . . . . . .

  9. junior says:

    sorry i meant to say trade for rip not tay, t-wolves want to upgrade sg and sf. but they want to upgrade sf thru the draft (aminu) at the 7. o and ripmotown i imagined it and . . . . . . THAT IS A HORRIBLE IDEA.

    I’m so lonely. I got nobody to trade with. Why am I so loney? Its probably because I am baby

  12. rai_from_the_philippines says:

    off-topic.. SI listed Amir Johnson the 40th of it’s Top 40 Free Agents List.. Since we need a big guy, can’t we just take him back again?then draft an extra big? just thinking

  13. James (Australia) says:

    Sheed had his quirks, but he was a, if not the, major reason we won a championship in ’04 and all Pistons fans need to be thankful to Rasheed for that.

    Would I like to see Rasheed in a coaching role in the ‘D’? Skill wise, Rasheed could have been one of the greats in the NBA. Tim Duncan is said to be one of the greatest PFs ever, and Wallace had all the skills of Duncan plus a three point shot. What Wallace lacked was the mental game. There were nights he just took an early mark, or didn’t even bother turning up. If Wallace could teach a young big man his skills, that would be great. But don’t teach him the bad habits Wallace picked up.

    Ball don’t lie, SHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEED, Guaransheeds, great memories for a great character.

  14. junior says:

    i agree sheed could have been one of the greatest ever. ive said it more then once, but he lacks everything but the skills. and you said it perfect hes a great character, not he has great character. wish you well sheed hope you retire a piston, but i dont want you on the coaching staff. way to go us soccer.

  15. DD3 says:

    It was a good career. Should have been a great one, but Sheed is wise to go out this way. He played a great game 7 in a tough series. But his heart isn’t in it anymore. He never did seem like a Celtic. He didn’t come in like PJ & the past Celtics to give it a realistic run. He waited til his last chance to prove he still had gas in the tank. She will always be a Piston in my eyes & today I wear my Rasheed Wallace Piston’s jersey with much pride.

  16. Jesse says:

    I know Sheed’s legacy will be that he had attitude problems and was an underachiever, or whatever… but you can’t really argue with the results: 4 all-star games, 3 finals appearances, one ring.

    Sometimes a player’s weakness and strength are the same thing… the point is, if you take away the things that made him hard to root for at times, he wouldn’t necessarily be a better player for it… it’s all part of the whole that makes him the player he is.

    That being said, I’m still not a fan.

  17. NoMoSheed!?!?!?!? says:

    I’m sure we will all miss Sheed, he has the greatest character in nba history, the crazieat 3 points and a lot of attitude. Who cares if he didn’t get another ring with Boston, the Lakers did not deserve that, Boston had the Heart, and showed that the veterans still have it in them.
    Old Man Bryant should retire, not Rasheed.

  18. daddy says:

    SHEEEEEEEEEEEEED one more year buddy the nba wont be the same without you

  19. grandma says:

    I wish him well. He brought Piston fans a lot of pleasure ( not to mention a championship) . I followed him this year in Boston and even brought myself to support the celtics ( ugh) because i wanted to see him win another.

    THE CHAMPIONSHIP BELTS, THE “GUARANSHEEDS”, “BALL DON’T LIE”, BOTH TEAMS PLAYED HARD”. LOVE U SHEED. #30 2 B IN TH RAFTERS EVENTUALLY(AFTR #10 4 WORM). FOREVR A PISTON.
