    That's one good way to get out of being traded. By this time next season, he'll be looking for big bucks in a multi-year deal. And I was really hoping to say good-bye.

    Umm, if Sheed's is giving out vibes that he might be shutting it down at the end of the next season, then I have to question his desire for next season... if someone out there is willing to give up some talent for him, then I say ship him out now and let them see if they can motivate him...he did what he had to do here....

    I believe it actually. Anyone who's paid attention over the years knows what Sheed's opinion of the NBA is. Now with all this ref stuff coming out and the pile continuing to grow I think he's completely fed up with the bull%%%%.

    If he is going to retire then when is he planning to tell everyone?

    I wouldn't doubt that he will retire. Doesn't make much of adifference though, most teams trading for him would consider him due to his expiring contract, anything else from him is a bonus.

    I would tend to agree. You'd think he'd be motivated to get another contract, but if he's retiring what would be his motivation? Maybe he'd want to go out on top as a champ and will give it his all in his last season. Or maybe he'll just play it out and retire at the end. I don't know, but people have been known for leaving big money on the table even when they had something left to give.

    If Stephen A. Smith knows this then I am quite sure Joe D. knows this as well.

    I am not surprised at all. Sheed is a lot different from other players. He is not and never was motivated by superstar status and money. He has always been a team player though...his emotions just get in the way. I still think he is great at heart despite all of his mistakes. Even though everyone says he let us down the last 3 years (the entire team did actually) I think he won't let us down. If this is truly his last year I think he's going all out. He's still cares about this team, but not about the NBA anymore.

    Sheed should coach when he does retire. He could be a great coach. Most

    I think you got his motivation right there. He'd like to go out as a champ.

    Wouldn't he get thrown out of many games with that temper of his?

    Sheed retiring is the start of something bad. No coach will be able to motivate him this season. He's now a lame duck player. This will affect the rest of the team. Do we really think Sheed is going to behave and try hard all the time for Curry IN HIS LAST SEASON...Joe, wake up and smell the [STRIKE]Roses[/STRIKE] disaster...

    How many times have we heard that from an athlete? This is my last year, usually when you hear that the retirement party doesn`t happen, not when it is announced anyway.

    Perhaps Sheed is sounding the retirement horn to let other GM`s know he is available for a lot less that one might think.

    Let`s be real here, with his contract expiring Sheed knows he will not get the kind of money he would like, however, MJ would gladly pay him something close to contribute under LB.

    This is not Sheed`s last year. I would be very surprised if it was.
