    The recent 10 years history of NBA could have been rewritten for sure if Sheed had Ben's heart. His exceptional talent to insult opponent's big man by putting them to the floor on their heels around the rim was always my all time favorite.

    A Portland beat writer could have written a similar article during Sheed's time in Portland. Sheed is a complicated guy. It's too easy to just rip him and paint a negative picture...but a balanced article doesn't read as well I guess.

    Meh, I don't care for Simmons. He acts as though Rasheed was brought in to start, carry the team, and then didn't.

    I think you guys are being too hard on Sheed. He's still got a lot of game left in him.

    He had a really nice basket in the paint the other night.

    Except for some articles about Jerebko, this is the only news I've seen about the NBA in Swedens biggest newspaper Aftonbladet. THE OWN GOAL WHICH AMAZES THE EXPERTS was the biggest headline yesterday. :pound:

    Well, don't laugh too hard. Their residual talent, as a nation (who don't have to hyper-ventilate about individualism) has shown much creative talent and a recognition thereof:
