I am pleasantly surprised by the way that Rasheed has stepped up in the last few games. It’s not like we don’t know that Sheed can lead the team, but he is such a team player that he’s reluctant to take control of games himself unless he knows that the team needs him. Right now he’s the reason why the defense is holding it together. You can’t ask much more of someone who can put up a double double each game. I just wish he could get some help on the boards.
We keep laying praise on how good Rasheed has been playing but Tayshaun Prince is quietly racking up the points and minutes for that matter. Here is the Post-Game Interview with Tayshaun and Sheed. Pay special attention to Sheed when watching. What does he have tucked in his hat? Is it a sharpie? And he sure doesn’t like to be told that the Pistons are searching for their identity. He make sure he sets the reporter straight who asked the question.
