KG and Co. Travel to 8 mile to persuade Sheed
So remember the playoffs this past year when KG was out and we had absolutely no size coming off the bench? Mikki Moore was horrible. Powe was hurt. We actually had to play Scal and (deep breath) he didn’t do that bad… Well with the rest of the Eastern Conference making moves early in the free agency period its time for us to do something. Let’s face it: It doesn’t look like Big Baby is coming back as I just read that teams were seriously interested in him meaning he’ll most likely get a overpaid $6 M dollar contract somewhere else. Danny Ainge went public saying that after his third knee surgery Leon Powe is gone, who is getting offers from Orlando, Miami, and Memphis. The Big 3 aren’t getting any younger, our young bench that I thought we would be able to bank on long after the Big 3 are in the hall have now all dispersed. Sure we will most likely have Rondo and Perk for the long haul, but we need to win titles now. Realistically, I’ll say we have three years left at the top of the East, maybe four. That is why it is so important that we get ‘Sheed now. KG, Doc, Wyc, Danny, Jesus Shuttlesworth, and The Truth all reportedly flew out to Detroit to try to persuade Wallace into coming to Boston. I can’t stress enough how badly this needs to happen. The Cavs Bring in ‘The Big Witness’ in Shaq, who i honestly think is going to show up in shape and poised to win this year just like his first year in Miami. The Cavs are also very much in the discussion for Ron Artest. This scares me. Not only do we have to worry about the Cavs, but the Magic, and suddenly the Pistons. Detroit lost Iverson and Sheed, but picked up ben Gordon and Charlie Villanueva. Now their rotation will be: Stuckey, Gordon, Rip, Tayshaun, Villanueva, Maxiell, which isn’t really comforting.
