The two seasons in which Rasheed Wallace was absent from the NBA felt undeniably hollow.
The NBA needs 'Sheed and 'Sheed needs the NBA and lucky for us, there's literally no reason why 'Sheed can't play in the league until he's 65. The man is that talented.
He brings the most unique brand of swagger sports has ever seen to an NBA team. He changes games, basically because he's leagues cooler than everyone else on the court. The beard, the bald spot, the wolf-like teeth, the ambidextrous ability (he can shoot deep 3-pointers left handed - and make them) all play into 'Sheed's total package. And then there's the trash talk, the glorious trash talk.
He's the best trash talker in the league, simply because everything he says is just so damn strange. Opponents think he's just a little bit crazy, but the truth of the matter is - he's a lot crazy.
We're seeing it now with the Knicks and to no 'Sheed follower's surprise, the good-karma New Yorkers are the only undefeated team in the NBA.
Here is 'Sheed strangely mocking Aaron Afflalo Tuesday night in the Knicks win over the Magic. Aaron Afflalo doesn't even know his nickname is Affleck! until 'Sheed reminds him.
'Sheed is every hipster's favorite NBA player. None of this manufactured, "look-at-me-I'm-humble-now!" LeBron stuff. Come to think of it, isn't it obvious that 'Sheed picked the wrong New York team to play for. Imagine how undeniably cool he would be had he been playing in the Barclays Center every night?
Then again, maybe it wouldn't be as cool, ya know, 'cause it's too expected ... 'Sheed again. Always a step ahead in the swag department.
We HOPE these two really didn't get married
Hope Solo has officially reached the point to where she's so crazy that she's not even that hot anymore. Ya I know, I know. Everyone loves a crazy chick. But no one is a fan of a crazy chick who gets married on a Tuesday to an ex-NFL tight end who just allegedly slapped said crazy chick around 48 hours prior to matrimony.
Yup, the Team USA goalie wed alleged scumbag Jerramy Stevens yesterday, according to Seattle sports radio station KJR 950 AM. The happy couple have been dating for eight weeks.
This from the Seattle PI this week regarding the incident early Monday morning:
However, police found Stevens asleep on the floor of a bedroom, and Stevens said he had not heard the altercation between Marcus Solo (Hope's brother) and the unwanted male guests, according to the police report. The reporting officer asked why Stevens was hiding on the floor behind the bed, yet Stevens said he wasn’t hiding but was sleeping.
Police noticed, however, that Stevens had blood on his cheek and his shirt. Stevens told the reporting officer that the blood on his cheek may have gotten there when Hope Solo kissed him. Stevens did not have an answer as to why there was dried blood on his shirt, according to documents.
