Update: Maybe not.
Just wanted to post this for all those “Sheed’s still coming back!” kind of guys. You know, you guys who will read this and STILL think Sheed’s coming back, even though the Shaq signing basically told us all, “Hey, Sheed’s not coming back. And because of that, we needed another big guy.” (Boston Herald)
Forget this recent talk about a Sheed un-retirement. He’s done. He’s simply doing the Celtics a favor by holding off until (if?) they can find a taker for his $6 million slot between now and late October.
He’s done. So now we’ve got to focus on trading his contract for something realistic. Come to me with some more ideas, people. I suck at the trade machine, mostly because I keep trying to find absurd steals and never think to myself, “Well, maybe Andres Nocioni for Sheed straight-up would actually help the Celtics out.”
P.S. – Thanks for the playoffs, Sheed. When push came to shove, you earned your stripes.
