You can put all that “Sheed is coming back” talk to rest. For now, at least. This whole Sheed retirement thing is kind of starting to resemble the annual Brett Favre saga, only on a “slightly” lesser scale. (Boston Globe)
The Celtics made roster moves this summer believing that Rasheed Wallace was going to retire, despite constant speculation that he was reconsidering. Team president Danny Ainge appeared convinced Wallace was done.
Yesterday, Wallace’s agent, Bill Strickland, said that his NBA career is indeed over, ending a tumultuous 15-year run.
Strickland simply stated, “Rasheed is retiring.’’
Now we can all get back to plotting a plan to flip Sheed’s retiring contract into Shane Battier. My best idea so far involves some ice cubes and a nine iron, a buffalo (live or stuffed, preferably stuffed for safety’s sake), Houston GM Daryl Morey and roofies. But mostly Daryl Morey and roofies.
