Rasheed Wants His (Fine) Money Back

Wallace was fined for typical Sheed-like comments this weekend, but (surprise, surprise!) doesn’t think he warranted the financial hit. And now, he’s going to fight to get his money back: “I’m definitely taking this one to the appeals board,” he said. “I knew it was going to happen, but I don’t know why (it did). I didn’t talk about no refs. I’m going to get that one back for sure.”

    It’s not mentioned in the article, but Sheed referred to Hedo as Turkododo.

    Sheed aint gettin squat back. David stern is so gangsta. As ferris said d stern is so tight if u shove a lump of coal up his a$$ in 2 weeks it’ll become a diamond

    sheed is a tool. turkododo? there was a borderline xenophobic undertone to his rant. he has always had it for the ”golden child” so that wasn’t surprising.

    I highly doubt he’ll win his appeal, but I agree with Sheed – he shouldn’t be fined for publc criticism of officials. I don’t think talking about the ‘golden child’ or ‘beyond borders’ players getting calls warrants a 30k fine. However the latter comment does sound xenophobic to a degree and I suspect that’s ther ‘real’ reason Stern came down like this.

    i watched most of that game, and in the third quarter, i genuinely found myself thinking that the refs were favoring the celtics during the most crucial stretch, when the game was tied and it got chippy. i know sheed will be sheed, but this is odd

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    The Boston Celtics are are STILL mad that Hedo Turkoglu and the Magics owned them on their own court in the playoffs.

    sheed talks too damn much for what he accomplished in this league. lucky he got a ring in the d because his potential/hype vs actual career production doesn’t look good at all. the HOF ain’t waiting on you, bruh.

  • d.j.

    why do people still say magics, its fu**ing magic get it str8, idk why that sh*t pisses me off so much…

  • james

    its true though he didnt criticise any refs he just criticised turk for floppping, which he clearly did do, theres no rule against that…
    also, turkododo isnt really xenophobia as hes turkish and theres no real negative connotation with doodoo and turks if im not mistaken its just sheed taking piss out of guys name, simple.

    Ridiculous fine amount. Sheed got T’d up last night for saying “And 1″ as he back-peddled to the defensive end. Why doesn’t Pierce get thrown out of every game for AND 1 requests then? Give the guy a break Zeebras

  • underdog

    Yeah, good luck with that Sheed.

  • Trevor

    @Ryan Kenney…yeah the refs are far more easy to T up Sheed then anyone else…he got the tech for saying and 1…the same game KG did the same exact thing and didn’t get a tech

  • jdubbs29

    The beyond borders kids have been messing up my game too. I feel ya Rashweed!

  • Big Marv

    Zebra’s are David Stern’s puppets. In a way It’s funny that Ra’s still here.
    He could have gone the same way as Mahmoud Abdul Rauf,or Graig Hodges maybe Ethan Thomas.
    David Stern runs the nba like Europe during 1940-1945. You better fit in, dress as he says, say what he allows you to to say or else.

  • Yesse

    There is nothing wrong about being critical about something, Stern or who ever run’s that.Isnt negative feedback suppose to be constructive?

    You can claim fines as occupational something or other and get them back on your taxes, if i remember correctly.

  • MikeC.

    Gotta love Sheed. The league will be slightly dimmer, and much less profane when he retires.

  • vtrobot

    z, i hear you, but sheed’s game has always been more than just about stats. he brings a lot more than that, but i would agree that it won’t get him into the HOF. the NBA knows how horrible the refereeing is so they will always try to quell any criticism against it with ridiculous fines. that’s why the league always fights all of the replays/new technology that could be introduced. it’s going to highlight how often the refs get the wrong call. the referee favoritism won’t ever change. i saw a “foul” on d. wade the other night and i thought it was 2006 again.

    i think players should be able to express themselfs.
    i think its bull$h!7 that if they say or do the wrong thing they get such hefty fines.

    ha @ Baguma! – Lets hear you say that when they lock out next season.

  • LA Huey

    “Turkododo”, I like that. What happened to the league giving out fines to floppers?
