Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy.

Must have been saying some hateful shiat if he got ejected for that. NBA is going soft on us.

The beauty of NBA, where the word "veteran" means leading your team in whining and selfish behavior.
 
2012-12-03 11:25:51 AM
So Sheed's patented, utterly harmless "BALL DON'T LIE" got him the 2nd T? Ah, welcome to the NBA, where fans are paying to watch officials, not players.

/remember him from his good'ole days at Portland.

S.A.S.Q.U.A.T.C.H.: The beauty of NBA, where the word "veteran" means leading your team in whining and selfish behavior.


The beauty of Fark, where the actions of one man is somehow an indictment on an entire league.

I swear I read an article somewhere about a month ago that said Wallace didn't deserve the bad rep that he has.
 
2012-12-03 11:31:04 AM
Pretty weak. He must have done something else before the original tech, unless the NBA is trying to emulate the No Fun League.
 
2012-12-03 11:32:48 AM
It would be cool if he got testicular cancer, then he could start an awareness campaign using his catchphrase.

They were a pair of BS techs, but hopefully they lead to Copeland seeing more minutes.

It's not called the Rasheed Rule for nothing.

Those were garbage technicals by typical garbage NBA officials.

Dude, I totally remember that. So farked up.
 
2012-12-03 12:45:58 PM
Back when he was in Detroit, he was a monster. Honestly, the back-to-back years they won 31 playoff games and came a 'Sheed brain-fart away from beating the Spurs for their second title wouldn't have happened if it weren't for him. Then again, him rolling off his defensive assignment in the waning moments of game 6 to allow an uncontested jumper was, well, yeah.

Didn't TIm Duncan of all people get ejected for something like that? Some of the refs are serious prima donnas.

What would be awesome is if he waited until his last game ever, drew a tech on purpose, and just beat the living daylights out of the ref that called it.

When the Commish is letting a ref under Federal investigation for involvement in illegal gambling rings officiate playoff games it's not shocking that some of the others start getting big headed about how untouchable they are.

I've always thought that if I were a referee, I'd try to stay as invisible as possible, remember that fans are here to watch the players, and try to err on the side of letting the players play, without letting the game get out of hand. And I'll bet if you take a survey, 99% of the population would say the same thing. So why don't actual refs act like that? Because those 99% of us aren't the people who become actual referees. Whatever profession you're in, after a while you tend to view that profession as critically important in the world, because after all it's your life. I'll bet they've got, like, trade journals and stuff with articles about "our profession under siege!" and so forth. Viewing the world from a ref-centric perspective greats a ref-centric way of calling the game.

This was a recent epiphany of mine.

In fairness to the refs, they're doing like 80 games a year too, and after 10 years of running into a guy and having him demonstratively complain about how you're doing your job in front of an audience, I'd probably hate the f*cker too.
 
2012-12-03 01:41:05 PM
And in Sheed's case, it's way more than 10 years.

I believe the NBA refs' trade journal would be called a "tip sheet" by those outside the profession.

Because the refs are owned by the Mob, and if they don't call the games the way the Mob wants it, their wives will have broken legs when they come home from the arena.

I'd love to hear the official rules-based explanation for why exclaiming "ball don't lie" after a foul shot (for which the underlying foul you object to) misses is grounds for a technical foul.

I am having trouble pinpointing that anywhere in the NBA rules and regulations.

Sheed shouted at the referee full volume - can`t have that. Elsewise the game does run the risk of getting out of hand with every call being whined over.


Super Chronic: And I'll bet if you take a survey, 99% of the population would say the same thing.


Survey bias. If you asked how many people hate seeing players flop and whine and slow the play of the game with their hysterics you would also get 99%.


/ I love Marcin Gortat's reaction. Sheed has officially become a clown show. 
// Throwing out/T'ing up players for laughing on the bench is stupid

I hope Sheed transitions to an acting career after his playing days are over a la Jim Brown. BAMF.

Um, yeah, if you totally pull out of your ass the way the survey would be phrased, sure. Or how about if you don't assume that the survey would be totally stupid?

NBA= clown show. The fining of the Spurs $250,000 for not playing four of their players was the final straw for me.

Koichi: NBA= clown show. The fining of the Spurs $250,000 for not playing four of their players was the final straw for me.


The Spurs intentionally gave a finger to the league and the league made 'em pay. If it was about rest, Pop would've rested some on one day and some on another, or he could've rested them for the Orlando game, which, again, they probably could've won anyway. He chose specifically to pick the national showcase game as a FU to the league, so the league had to do something. TNT isn't paying all that money to televise backups. They still got a decent game, but you can't have teams going out there and sandbagging the product in front of the national audience and playing it up as "oh, we were just resting HALF THE TEAM."

Stern could have explained that in a phone call and not a press conference before the game though.
