What do you think of Sheed?
Sheed in this team is like canary-bird in mine: when there is something wrong, he is first to die.
I like Sheed, but I think he is a distraction. Half the time he gets upset over legit foul calls. You have to pick your spot to argue calls. I don't think one ref takes him seriously with his antics.
LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!!
Sheed's greatest failure is not living up to the expectations of others.
If Sheed is starting along side Amir - it helps Sheed keep up his energy. Amir does the defensive rotation and transition D. (How many times was Sheed seen sprinting back on transition D tonight? Any?) What was Sheed doing tonight to open the game - just guarding Jefferson. Nothing else. Think about it. Don't judge him just so poorly quite yet. See how a good long stretch of Amir starting along side him works out. Oh, and for those of you who want to scoff at how good Amir is, we are 13-5 now with him starting.
Why did others have such high expectations for him?
Why did my dad want me to be an accountant? Why did my step father want my step brother to be a professional hockey player when all he wanted to do was chase skirts and drink beer on his dirt bike? I dunno.
What makes a kind out of a slave? What makes the flag on the mast to wave?
I can't vote within those options...indifferent doesn't even work. The guy has tools unlike anyone in the league but uses them maybe twice a month. He's frustrating.
Of course asking this question after tonight's game, and I'd be tempted to say that I love him.... but I know that is just one game and he has been inconsistent his entire tenure with the Pistons. Not letting my emotions get the best of me, I'll pick the "A distraction but still helpfull" option. If you had proposed this question after the Game 6 loss last May, I'd probably choose the last one.
If it's similar to Sheed's situation, then I would guess it's because you spent all summer growing up in your bedroom practicing accounting non-stop, then became the top accountant in your high school, then you got a full ride to one of the top accounting colleges in the country on an accounting scholarship. After 2 years it was clear that you were so talented that you decided you didn't even need the diploma, yet all of the top accounting firms were still fighting over eachother to offer you a $1M+ salary. But as it turns out, you really don't like details that much, you're more into long-range projections.
Hmmmm.... It was chemistry to be honest. 3 months. McDonald's did make me an offer in 1993 that I couldn't refuse. Everyone wants to take orders at the Drive Thru window. That came later. I really just wanted to play the drums and mess around on computers. Oh well, 1 out of 2 ain't half bad. ;)
My dad didn't ask me to be anything and I've lived up to his expectations.
Yes that is something. Probably his best game in years. I mean I am glad he had it and am not hoping that he does poorly just to prove a point. During Currys post-game he was saying how Sheed is back healthy now .... But whats his excuse been the past few years? To me Sheed represents everything that has been wrong with the Pistons that went into being a 1 and done team. Soon enough he will be back to floating around, questioning the coach and letting us down in key situations. Yes I am aware that Sheed/Dyess are still our best frontline but Sheed is not always there - plays when he wants to.
Meh, I think the people here know what i think about him. I like him, I don't like him. Either way, the air will be a little fresher when he leaves.
I always wanted to know what does "who put the APE in Apricot " meant!???
Sheed is a legend in pistons history but for present,and last ECF he failed in all decisive games. Joe must keep sheed till the end of the seasson and clear salary. Only keep him after if sheed not retire and sign for a minimun salary(1,5 milions $ ?) Detroit need develope young players,new play sistem in 2009 and good 2010 draft,i don´t see sheed with detroit in these scenary.
Sheed has spoken LOL Pistons' Wallace: We're not giving up or giving in | detnews.com | The Detroit News
