Regarding Sheed's comments about the NBA wanting LeBron in the NBA Finals:
Since "They wanted to put their darling in there (the NBA Finals)" did "they" ask YOUR Detroit Pistons to roll over in Game 5?
Ignoring the obvious (that the Pistons played ABSOLUTELY ZERO defense in Game 5), Sheed pulls a Suns/Kings fan and claims that the NBA is fixed. Before we go any further, I've got a few more questions for Rasheed Wallace:
Did David Stern prevent YOUR Pistons from double-teaming LeBron in Game 5, forcing the ball out of the only threat on the Cavs?
Did David Stern order Jason Maxiell to guard LeBron from the top of the key with less that two minutes left and no help defense in Game 5?
Did David Stern order the artist formerly known as Tayshaun Prince to literally sprint out of the way as LeBron drove the lane for a thunderous dunk toward the end of Game 5?
Here's a clip of the Top Five Plays from Game 5. Three of them show LeBron penetrating the lane for uncontested dunks. The fourth play shows Prince sprinting out the lane as though LeBron's carrying a bomb. Possible the worst defensive moment in Prince's career:
Come on Sheed! You're a damn good player on a team that pulled a Sacramento Kings when it mattered. You flat out choked! From the owner to the fans to the coaching staff right on down to the players themselves, y'all balled up in the fetal position and watched LeBron YouTube your asses into history. It wasn't David Stern dreaming for ratings, you simply blew your chance at glory and now with the window of opportunity slamming shut, you're left throwing out irresponsible quotes.
Take responsibility for you and your teammates' actions!
