Bring Sheed back next year.
need more options... bring back as a starter no bring back as a bench player.... i'd be ok with that, or if a starter with solid backups that he's not playing more then 20-25 mins a game aka buddah for the bad boys.
Good point. I expanded the poll.
I think we should pay Sheed $8 million a year to take technicals and lead the dance circle.
I don't care if he's willing to play for free. I don't want him back. He has over stayed his welcome.
No, he is taking a roster spot away from a combo guard and I really feel if they can bring in 1 or 2 more guards they might get a complete player if they combined them all into 1 player. Plus, I don't ever recall him diving into the stands to try and catch some of the passes that the guys threw.
Undecided myself, I can't resist. I luv the guy, no matta what he does.
I really like a lot about Sheed...but it's fairly clear the party's over...his passion for the team is gone. If we had a different coach that I thought he respected, I might reconsider for $6-7M with him coming off the bench.
Where's the "Hell no" option?
No way. It's time to break up this team. Sheed needs a change of environment. Not to mention he has lost more than a step or two.
At this point, I'd take him as a coach.
I like Sheed, but it's time to give his spot to someone who's not afraid to work for it and will do whatever it takes to improve like Walter Sharpe.
He would make a good "young big man coach"...seems like he has a passion to teach the young bigs...Watch tape of him playing Dwight Howard or a LaMarcus Aldridge..to name a few! Young bigs with potential makes his eyes go wide open and excited... Assistant coach? Definitely not in Detroit....Amir and Kwame don't seem to give Rasheed that excitement lol
I can't understand how you can continue to carry water for Sheed. You've replied twice, and have yet to give one reason to keep Sheed.
I'm very torn about this. I tend to lean towards no regardless of my personal feelings b/c i feel with Curry coming back it's a no win situation and he would lean on him much too heavily. If this can be remedied, then yes i would say if he wants to come back, i'm 100% behind it. Pro's -Fantastic with the young players -Team guy -If he comes back, he understands that we are a rebuilding team and if he can be at peace with that, he's be super valuable -Still needed -We have no one that can D up like him (that plays anyway ) -Well liked and respected among teammates; the young big guys seem to depend on him -Veteran presence; subtracting CB and LH from the situation really hurt Stuck IMO -Still can play; IMO his injury hindered him tremendously this year -Passionate -Helps my enjoyment of the team LOL -Could be fantastic for 25 or so min a night -We NEED his 3 point shooting Potential Cons -Will he be motivated? -How much money does he want? -Has he checked out on Curry? -Has he lost passion for the team? -Will he still play 35 minutes and hinder development of the young guys? -Does he want to be here? -Will he stay healthy? -Mentally available? -Has he really declined that much? -He does not bring steady leadership -His play is very dependent on team chem
If we had to ask those questions about any other mid-tier player, wouldn't that be a no brainer that it's a bad fit? It's been a bad fit for a few seasons now. I'm a HUUUUUGE Sheed fan. I have defended him as much, if not more than anyone else on this board. But the fat lady has sung, the curtain has been lifted, Sheed has been weighed and measured, and it is what it is. Let's move on. He might get a higher than average salary, and frankly, he should get it from someone who can use his talent. We'll be struggling to make the playoffs next year, and I don't think Sheed mentally checking out with 20 games left in the season is going to do anything for the Pistons or his legacy in Detroit.
Nope, not in favor of it. It's time for both parties to move on. I said the same thing at the end of last year after Sheed was exchanging pregame kisses with Garnett before KG proceeded to go out there and kick his ass all over the court. He has continued to decline immensely since then... He had a nice career in Detroit but its time.
I voted no, why would I give a reason against my vote?
