There's not much to say about the results after the Sheed deal... pretty much instant success... But why? Could be his experience... Can't forget his length and shot blocking instincts making the best big men work for their shots He’s got a better than average outside shot... which stretches the "D" Nice court vision... finding the open man instead of forcing up bad shots. Communications... this was one of our weaknesses post Curry... we had talented players that just played the game according to the coach’s instructions... Sheed brought a new level of chat to the clubhouse and court... a certain cockiness...bringing to the team an air of confidence that's quite different than what we had pre Sheed....kind of a loosy goosy attitude that's great for the lockeroom... he helped them believe in their excellence... Talent alone cannot aways provide the championship ingredience... you need the Sally and Rodman types to bring the right blend of personalities to go with the talent. I'm starting to second guess myself in thinking that Darko or anyone else can bring the important intangibles that Sheed does for the team... he's very important to the identity of the team... without him we could take a step back..... He's been an important mentor for DMC... he's learning about other things that make the team right, other than just the tight azzes like LB (although LB did have a lighter side).... We’ll never know the true value of Sheed off the court... but ya gotta admit this wasn't exactly a confident team before he arrived. My point on Sheed is there's more than just stats and how many points you score in the paint that matter. Sheed?
