Need For Sheed

by | Apr 10, 2008 | 5 comments

I feel like many of you may have passed up the link I posted to the article on ESPN about Rasheed and rather than have someone miss out on a glowing piece about the man we hold dear, here it is again along with the flash gallery of pictures that they did on him last season.

I could pull tons of quotes from the article, but I would rather you head on over to read it in it’s entirety. I will quote on thing from Eric Adelson’s tale of Rasheed, and that’s his closing paragraph.

“Fact is, Wallace should be a Hall of Famer, but it’s not in him to dominate-to be the once-in-a-generation star his talent supports. Maybe this explains why he lingers on the perimeter instead of being more of a force down low. He’s always been more comfortable on the outside looking in.”

    I read this article yesterday and I must say it is the greatest article I have read on espn about the pistons (well SHEED but you know what I mean)!!!!! Just like it said Sheed doesn’t want the spotlight, the guy loves giving back but he doesn’t like people to know because he’s not that kind of person that has to be on tv to give back. SHEED is hands down the greatest PF in the NBA right now if he wanted to be. He can dominate anyone he wants if he feels like it, and when he gets like that you better watch out because he ain’t gonna stop!!! Everybody always talks about who they would create a team around and it’s always about Kobe or Bron etc. but I must say that I would want SHEED on my team, he’s a great team player. And I must say I would love to see coach SHEED I wouldn’t care what team he coached I would love to watch that team and watch SHEED.

    btw more espn gold

    for all those pistons fans especially who thinkn tayshaun hasnt been a good defender this year… espn disagrees with u, putting him on their all-nba first, yes first, defensive team… both stats and subjectivity was used in the ranking

    ****, i wrote a length post but the serve effed up.

    1) Bruised Bones, Artest and maybe Gerald Wallace are better defenders than Tayshaun. Critics overrate him due to the block and shutting down Kobe, which was also due to Rip’s D as well.

    Sheed is a better defender than KG and is way better than Rondo on D. Hollinger is clueless.

    2) well-written article. even though we knew all this stuff it was beautifully written

    oops i meant CB is better than Rondo on D

    this piston team is a fing joke,we knew they would be limited offensively but everyone was gushing over the defensive potential,well guess what,they blew another lead while giving up 100 plus points,they just don’t give a shit
