Sheed won't be the same in Boston unless they bring in Curry as an Assistant.
Very sad to see Rasheed go. Best of luck to him.
It will surely be a tech fest. They have some characters on that team. Good luck to him, but certainly not the Celtics.
If he'd went to the Spurs I think he had a better shot at another ring. I don't think this puts the Celtics over the hump at all. Plus they beat the ish out of us, so thats kinda disrespectful for Sheed to go there... I dont think I like him anymore now.
LOL you are right there
Sheed doesn't fit in with the SA culture. He's a much better fit with Bos on the court and in the lockerroom, and in the club, and in the strip club etc etc etc. Good for Sheed, wish you the best except when y'all play Detroit.
Sheed was brought in to stop Howard. Whoever went after him in the East, had their eyes on stopping (or at least slowing down) DHo. I don't think the investment will pay off. But we'll see.
Bos is possibly makking the same mistake we made after losing to SA, and the same mistake Mia made. This summer Joe has an easy job, WE SUCK, retool. But when you're still at the top tier of the league it's hard to tell if you've got another shot at it or are you on a sharp decline.
This is a great move for Boston. I think that the Pistons fans and organization might have given up on Sheed a little prematurely. Perhaps I am in the minority, but I happen to believe he has more in the tank and perhaps something to prove. Its amazing what a good system brings out in a player. We saw the opposite in Detroit. Poor coaching making every player on the team look expendable. Look for a rejuvenated Sheed, the same way we saw a supposedly past his prime Chauncey Billups get revitalized. This might be the move that brings Boston back to the NBA Finals. Not they needed that much help anyway. Healthy Garnett and they would have been facing the Lakers. This is a good counter for them with the Powe injury and possible loss of Glen Davis. I sure do miss being in the position where proven players agree to sign with you for less money just off the chance that they might win a championship.
I'm with you. I think he's going to be a beast. And they are 100% in the finals, and i could see them taking the whole thing,. Afterall, Derek Fisher is still going to guard Rondo. Great move for the Celtics. Smart, but irritating move oin Sheed's part. It's pointless for us to bring him back b/c our goal is to 1/suck and 2/become the PHX suns, but damn is it going to hurt to see him in a Celts jersey.
Even if they lose Baby, the Celtics have gained over Orlando. Orlando is not the same ball club. That change, I predict, will be to their disadvantage. The Celtics have made their last move and Cleveland has yet to make (perhaps) their last one.
Rumour is Big baby to Spurs, Grant Hill to BOS . . . Time will tell i guess.
I pray the Spurs sign him, that would leave Dyess on the table, unless he wants to go to Orl. Bos keeps getting older, I think us Piston fans know how this story ends............
I was just thinking the same thing. Although if they win it all next year, it will be one more 'ship than Pistons got with this squad.
I can't see Sheed beasting, but we'll see. If anyone thinks Sheed has something too prove (iirc lpgrl?) then I don't think people understand Sheed. Sheed does things his way, on his schedule, at his pace, to satisfy his own agenda. And putting winning as his #1 objective hasn't exactly been his M.O. On the Pistons, he brought the swagger, but next to KG, he will have to defer and play second fiddle. As I wrote recently, when Sheed isn't engaged, he is very average. He's a very tempermental player, and his effectiveness rises and falls with his emotional state. It will at the least, be interesting to watch as an observer.
Is it possible that Rasheed brings "the switch" to Boston?
Nothing would please me more.
If I thought we had an honest chance at the ECF this coming year i'd want sheed back as a backup, we don't... so think the money is best spent on kids that can improve and be ready to be solid in 2-3 years when hopefully the team is ready to compete.... I hope nothing but the best for sheed, except that his team lose atleast there last game of the season, but by no fault of his.
I don't think BOS had difficulty guarding Howard this past season. I'm not sure this helps them with CLE which is the team that can give them trouble. It does help them deal with KG's health and Perkins foul troubles. It gives them a lot of flexibility up front. I'll still never forgive him for that meltdown against CLE in G6 a few years ago. Down 12 points in the 4th after losing 3 games in a row they had them right where they wanted them until he selfishly imploded.
