UR Craziest MI Athlete?
Rasheed Wallace
Posted By: TurboPistons
No ratings for this submission
Without a doubt, on of the craziest athletes to ever grace our presence here on the Shores of the Great Lakes is Rasheed Wallace. There is no explaining what he does... His dance before the games, not hooking up the straps on the back of his shoes, his smack talk with the refs, his short sagging half way down his ass, his being unimpressed with his visit to the white house, his doing everything opposite of everybody else - all directly linked to his abnormal chemical make-up. But, the best example to support Sheed's nomination for Craziest MI Athlete can be summed up in three short words, "Ball don't lie!" See, the big man firmly and truly believes that if the opposing player misses their free-throw, it is universal proof that the foul never happened in the first place! "Ball don't lie" - fate won't give you that free-throw because you were never supposed to have the free-throw in the first place. As a Pistons fan, it is actually great. That goes for people in the organization, too. I have often seen players and coaches on the bench CRACKING UP when Sheed yells, "Ball don't lie!" Because he believes it!!!

To his credit, it was noted in one telecast that Sheed makes really meaningful decisions at times too. (Announcer) told the story about Sheed's first visit when starting out at UNC was a Professor who was in the Tuskegee Airmen. That was a move made by a thinker and a very sane one at that. Of course, the announcer did close the story with, "Rasheed is one complicated man!" So, there you go ... "Ball don't lie!!!"

Sheed Slide!
