Video: Wallace Goes ‘Sheed on Some Towels, Gets Suspended

by Marcel Mutoni

Since losing has become their motto this season, the Detroit Pistons are starting to find ways to do it creatively and in highly entertaining fashion.

Enter Rasheed Wallace and two well-placed towels (via: Need 4 Sheed):

Wallace will miss Friday night’s loss game against Orlando due to the fact that his little fit last night earned him his 15th and 16th techs of the year.

And because the team didn’t have enough to worry about, Allen Iverson aggravated a back injury last night and didn’t play past the first quarter.

    I don’t know if I’d be scared or I’d laugh if Sheed started yelling at me.


    PIstons will become the champion for this year’s season! GUARANTEED

    While some of Sheed’s T’s are good for the squad at times…..being on this long-ass losing streak and being in a close game, on the road, he really put the squad in a shi*ty spot. Really bad move this time.

    That will be a fine.

  • thesubwayconnection

    That was hilarious. This losing streak is not.

  • Tombomb15

    Lets remember here, Sheed hates playing badly, and the fact his game has totally fallen off means he is always gonna be mad till he retires…….do the math!

  • http://www.friendster.com/sesa Sesa

    let the league “penilised” him for this one

  • jay

    laugh definately

  • RM

    I think he had complete reason for going bananas. One no call and one call that should not have been called. Sheed always has a reason. Good for him.

  • riggs

    haha @ sesa

  • Fred34

    He is soooooo getting max endorsement deals from MAJOR towel companies – - – - BET ! If in doubt Sheed is always right – even when he’s wrong. The Tao of Sheed.

  • Fred34

    If a T falls in the woods and there’s no one to see it . . . . . .. it’s on Sheed :-P

  • jedi420

    It’s kind of symbollic isn’t it? Throwing in the towel and all…

  • http://www.alloutblitz.com Cordeazy

    both team played hard

  • Randy Brown

    Sheed’s a waste of space. He can always be relied to f*ck things up when his team needs him. He’s the player I wanted gone this season not Chauncey

  • bumarty

    He was quotes after the game saying, “That technical was a ‘Sheedockery’”.

  • http://sjsu.edu davidR

    haha jedi

  • http://deceptivelyquick.blogspot.com JackBrown

    What a baby. Reminds me of when he threw a towel in Sabonis’ face during a Portland playoff meltdown.

  • http://hibachi20.blogspot.com/ BETCATS

    next year him and Iverson will bring the Bobcats to the playoffs. I am still praying for this to happen.

  • http://www.alllooksame.com Tarzan Cooper

    jedi: hahaha. sheed and ai know the seasons over and they wont be back next year. if i was ai id have back spasms too.

  • donlaker

    sheed channel your( scottie pippen,beating up a stack of towels in game 7 loss, west finals vs, lakers) dude take up ballet or yoga, and you cant blame sabonis…….

    lol@Sesa for sneaking “penilised” in there.

    There is actually a Detroit News writer who agrees with ya’ll:

    Commentary: Pistons need to cut Rasheed Wallace

    We are watching a full-blown meltdown of the Detroit Pistons. And the blame should rest with team president Joe Dumars.

    Rasheed Wallace throws a towel at a referee. Rip Hamilton is chirping up, saying he should be starting again. Allen Iverson is out with a back injury and rookie coach Michael Curry has no idea what is going on. And did I mention that the Pistons have lost eight games in a row and there is no help in sight?

    There are a few things that need to happen. Even though the NBA is not going to suspend Wallace, the Pistons should after the latest meltdown. He lost his composure again during a 90-87 loss to New Orleans and topped it off by throwing a towel toward an official.

    The Pistons should suspend Wallace. It is time for Dumars to make a statement about Wallace. He is lost and there is no reaching out to him. I would not mind if Dumars decided to release Wallace and say so-long. It is time for his ride to end.

    I am tired of Wallace. You are tired of Wallace, and if they were honest with themselves, the Pistons would admit they are tired of Wallace. He had his day here. He helped win a title. Now it is time for him to move on. He has worn out his welcome.

    Of course, is easy to blame everything on Sheed or Iverson or Curry. But Dumars must take the greatest share of the blame for this season. He has ruined this team. He created a team with bad chemistry and one with a bad mix. People want to blame Iverson for the Pistons’ woes. But Iverson is simply doing what Iverson does.

    The day he stepped into the league from Georgetown, Iverson was a player that demanded the ball and dominated the ball. A leopard does not change his spots.

    Let me give you an illustration. If you captured a wild animal, such as a lion, and brought it back to your house and tried to make it a pet, there is a high probability that you would fail. Eventually, the lion would maul you.

    Now whose fault is that? It’s not the lion’s fault. The lion is simply doing what lions do.

    The same thing has happened with the Pistons. Iverson is an untamed player who demands the ball. That has not changed, nor will it change.

    Dumars waited too long to do a makeover of this team. That is why we are seeing a meltdown now. It will only get worse if Sheed is allowed to stay in that dressing room. It is time to cut ties now.

    “Rasheed Wallace has not been suspended for Friday’s game against the Magic after the league rescinded two of his technical fouls.”


  • NAS

    Sheed does not do well in losing situations – period

    Curry has no clue how to incorporate iverson into the offense – this team should be running and gunning up and down the court – ala pheonix suns

    you cant play with the same strategy when you change a significant piece – there MO now is offense not defense and they should be emphasizing it

    if they play breakneck offense no one would complain about shots

    we have learned that big ben and billups were the heart of the team (more so than RIP and SHEED)

    Its weird a team with RIP, Prince & Dice is saying they dont have a leader

    If you give this same roster to van gundy, phil jax, doc rivers or even b scott they probably win 50 games

    The biggest mistake joe D did was hiring curry when he KNEW he was going to break up the team so drastically

  • NAS

    by the way imagine if shedd had thrown a towel at say phil jax – i swear phil would have stuck it so high up his ass he’d be singing pavarotti

  • Fred34

    Ok, you don’t have to love Sheed, but you are NOT allowed to wear any throwback jersey and say that you don’t like the guy. Sheed IS throwback. He’s classic. And if his team never wins again and he retires can’t no one take anything away from the man the player the human – Sheed. How often do you get to see an Id on the court in real life – not very kids, not very.

  • Joe

    Pathetic. Ironic how this actually makes the team better. I checked his shot tendancies before the game, Sheed has actually took more shots from behind the arc than from inside ten feet. I’m glad he got tossed out, it gave Maxiell a chance to come on, tear down rebounds and show that McDyess isn’t the only player in the fromtcourt that gives a f*ck

    and what a bad time for the tech’s..down 3 with time left..its hard to watch the Pistons, and I was really looking forward to this season after the trade….

    If i was that ballboy I would have fallen to the floor, grabbed my wrist in pain, and sued his ass.

    I’m sure he put Curry in as coach for just that reason. He knew this year was going to be rough, so he installed an interim coach. Let Curry weather the storm so the new coach can start anew. No point in a good coach wearing out his welcome before he can acomplish anything.

    What kind of sad person makes a website about Rasheed Wallace?

  • http://docfunk.blogspot.com Doc Funk

    need4sheed has been one of the more entertaining sites in the past couple years. Its pistons-focused, not sheed-focused.

  • http://ittakesanationofmillionstoholdthissac.blogspot.com ciolkstar

    What kind of humorless person is saddened by the existence of a basketball website that references Sheed in the title?

  • http://www.ravingblacklunatic.blogspot.com Allenp

    That Detroit writer made some good points. I don’t blame Dumars though. That’s stupid. You can only blame Dumars if you think that he made the Billups trade with only this year in mind. Nobody with good sense thinks that. He made the Billups trade to free up roughly $30 million in cap space this summer, and that’s what he did.
    Personally, I would have kept Flip Saunders around and let him deal with these cats, but that’s hindsight.
    Let’s remember, the Pistons have been sulky, whining idiots for quite some time now. They have not played hard consistently since Larry Brown left the squad. Granted, they were never as bad as they are now, but they haven’t been a true contender for quite some time, at least in my mind.
    GMs should never let the media convince them to make decisions. Writers don’t have to answer for their mistakes. They claim a trade is happening, they claim somebody is getting fired and when they are wrong, nobody calls for their jobs. It’s amazing how often people with that kind of immunity want to get other folks fired.

  • donlaker

    sheed : relax don’t do it , just towel off
    you did play hard…………

    Thanks Garvin… I adjusted the headline.

  • RM

    What did I say. I knew Sheed didn’t deserve those techs. It was the terrible reffing over in New Orleans!!

  • kingofsota

    TAD, i completely agree with that ariticle. I wish that they would’ve traded Chauncey for a post player- Bynum, Gasol, Aldridge, Scola, Chandler, West, J.Oneal, Harrington, etc, the list goes on and on, there were a number of guys that would’ve fit better with Detroit – but of course Iverson sells tickets so I don’t blame Dumars for that thought. He ruined the chemistry with this move, so now Sheed or Iverson has to go.

    Both will be gone by August

    @ sad about Rasheed site

    People make websites about everybody, even Adonal Foyle, (Free) Darko and Toni Kukoc “The best NBA player in the existence of the universe” Google it.

    The Hawks would take him back right now, even if only for one more game. He might have been protesting the crappy G-all over print towels. 1st he smacks one out of the towel boy’s hands, then already enraged at the G, sees another adorning the chair he was about to seat in and went to another level of Anti-G. Is Rasheed the reverse KG? Garnett can curse out the “invisible people” word to the Vince Thomas article if I remember that right, if not apologies to the correct author-guy who does the quote translates, and scream about anything and everything including calls. Usually doesn’t do it directed at officials though. Sheed does 1/2 and 1/2, sometimes to nobody, sometimes directly to officials.

  • joel

    u know its funny, AI and Sheed arent there and they win. When they are there, they lose.

  • henry

    gotta love sheed
