Just read these first two paragraphs. Perfectly sarcastic. (WEEI)
Maybe I should be here in praise of Rasheed Wallace.
I mean, did you watch his performance vs. the Pistons on Monday night? Granted, we are talking about a 23-43 team missing its best player in Rodney Stuckey (and getting just seven minutes from Tayshaun Prince), but that should not take away from the fact Wallace scored eight points (on 3-of-4 shooting) and grabbed four rebounds in the 119-93 Celtics rout. The stuff of legend. Plus, he was active on defense and managed to take only one 3-point attempt in nearly 17 minutes on the court. And hey, no technical fouls! All in all, a real swell effort from the guy that we were told was the missing piece.
Eight points and four rebounds? The stuff of legend. I love that line.
I’m not as big a Sheed-basher as most. I think he actually does some valuable things on the court, even if his shot selection and effort can sometimes make Red Auerbach roll over in his grave.
But if you ARE a Sheed-basher? You will absolutely love this article.
