Great, and I do mean great, interview over theglobeandmail.com with Rasheed Wallace. Michael Grange got into a conversation with Sheed on the economy…I will not post everything here because you need to head over there and read it, but he did ask him how much longer he would play….and
If you put a suitcase in a locker room with $25-million [compared with the $56-million or so salary cap] would players take it or would they leave it and go get a job? What would they do?
They would probably rely on that suitcase. I guess it depends on the up-bringing. Myself, personally, I have no problem going out there and getting a 9-to-5. If I have to do that to support my family, that’s what I’m going to do: get my black us up, and get that 9-to-5.
How many more years you going to play?
I don’t know. I guess until the wheels fall off the bus. Or until I’m not wanted on no teams, I guess. I’m still year-by-year.
Seriously, could you imagine sharing a cubicle with SHEED? Utter hilarity all day long.
“I’m more a decoy on a lot of things,” Wallace said. “I know that when I’m out there on that wing the majority of my men won’t be able to go help on (Jason Maxiell) or (Kwame Brown) or (Amir Johnson) in the post.” Sheed on stepping outside in three point land. Via The Detroit Free Press
