For STAT's sake, we need him. We need someone, in collusion with Kurt Thomas, to put the onus on Amar'e Stoudemire, who we will NEVER be able to trade, to become what he has to become to back his big talk, crippled walk ways.
Do you honestly think Sheed would take the political stance in cussing out STAT for being a lame defender? Would he bite his tongue? F*ck no, he wouldn't! And he is, for the sake of the Knicks 2-3 year window, exactly what we need to help get the most out of the $20M man.
And the toughness he adds...........Phew.
Chandler, K Thomas, Sheed, Camby and Amar'e. If all of these boys, in their respective minutes played, are out there and playing intensely, Jesus H! What front court would wanna go against us?
And, though I doubt it'll be the case, he might well help Melo turn his cheek to all the buddy-buddy BS with LeBron and Wade. SHAQ said it right "they (Melo and STAT) need to take it personally".
I feel the need for Sheed. As old as he is, and as mental, we have an expendable enforcer that wants nothing more than to win, and doesn't give a f*ck how gracefully or non-gracefully that night's win comes about.
