With all the characters we have this season.. its definitely gonna be entertaining.. cant wait to see Sheed @ MSG, lets just hope that with the entertainment, come wins.
We have a nice combination Toughness, Smarts, Experience, Leadership and we still have a couple players in their prime.
The offense goes through Melo and Amare anyway, it's not like were asking the older guys to come in and drop 20+ a night for us.
Wallace- Championship experience, toughness, Floor stretcher
Thomas- Toughness, Vet leadership, Backup insurance in case of injuries
Kidd- Championship experience, Leadership, Floor general, Smartness, Spot up shooter, Great passer
Camby- Toughness, Rebounds, Blocks, Paint enforcer
Prigioni - Backup insurance in case of injuries, Great passer
On top of that they are coming off the BENCH, it's not like they are starters that were relying on to play heavy minutes...
Just because their old does not mean their useless each guy will bring something to the team.
Carmelo (28) - In his prime
Amare (29) - In his prime
Chandler (29)- In his prime Bday on Oct 2nd BTW
Felton (28)- In his prime
Novak (29)- In his prime
Shumpert(22)- our young gun
Camby, Prigioni, Kidd, Wallace, Thomas >>>>>>>>>>>>>> useless inexperienced Young unproven talent

WALTHAM, Mass. -- With Rasheed Wallace ready to come out of retirement in hopes of joining the New York Knicks, Celtics coach Doc Rivers said he wasn't particularly surprised by the 38-year-old's decision to return to the NBA.
"I saw him at a couple games last year -- college games [because] he’s up in North Carolina a lot -- and when we talked he was definitely throwing feelers out about playing, even last year," said Rivers, who crossed paths with Wallace at Duke games while watching his son, Austin. "I’m not surprised that he made the comeback. I was surprised he retired to begin with. I thought he had more to give. I think when you play that long, you get tired of the conditioning. You get tired of the practice. And guys like that would love to just play in the games. So he probably needed that break, and now he’s working out again, and probably refreshed."
Wallace spent the 2009-10 season with the Celtics and aided (at times) the team's run to Game 7 of the NBA Finals before falling short against the Los Angeles Lakers. Wallace retired soon after, facilitating a buyout on the two years remaining of his contract with Boston.
Invariably, whenever Boston ran into the need for a serviceable big man over the last two seasons, Wallace's name popped up. Rivers hinted the team might have considered him during the 2010-11 campaign, but he was not on the radar last season -- though he might have been if he had been in shape.
"Not last year, he wasn’t in the condition that he could help us," said Rivers. "If he had have been, we would have definitely looked at him. He was good for us."
According to our friends at ESPN New York, Wallace has not yet signed a deal with the Knicks, according to a team source. But the Knicks expect him at training camp when it opens this week.
If he can give that sort of defense he showed in that video against Gasol then he's a very nice pickup.
Kmart is for sure the more athletic defender and would block a lot more shots...but Sheed is the smarter defender and will communicate better on D
Kmart would run the floor much better.....but Sheed would spread the floor much better.
Kmart's FT pct. w Clippers last year .377 Sheeds last year with Celtics a solid .776
I compare the 2 because I have been pushing Kmart (like 90% of us have) but this could turn out to be the more savvy move.

SHEED FOR THREEE! Quotes will be aplenty from Clyde. This is gonna be sweet keep adding the depths and size. We wont be ****ed with
DaTPRiNCE...That EGYPTiAN Fella, #MeloMafia
Vets know the ropes and are more mature in pressure situations and their mentality isnt to make an all star team or to start but to do whatever it takes to bring home a ring
I'm ecstatic to have Sheed on this team. We have an incredibly intimidating front court, and we need some extra offense in the 2nd unit.
Definitely a better get than Kmart, who I think is a punk, and has less O than the phrase, 'his career is finished'.
Is Sheed gonna be on NBA2k13?
you will more then likely have to add him by 2KSHARE.
