Sheed could be looking to coach whenever he retires.credit: dailyknicks.com The New York Knicks have gotten off to a hot start for a variety of reasons, and Rasheed Wallace deserves some of the credit. The very animated big man made a comeback for this season after two years away from the game and a heartbreaking NBA Finals loss to the Los Angeles Lakers. Everyone thought that we had seen the last of Sheed as a player at that point; he didn’t appear to be healthy or in very good shape, and his effectiveness was dwindling. Rasheed Wallace joined a team that already had plenty of big men, and it was unknown how much he would get in the game. In 13 minutes per game, he’s been extremely efficient, scoring 7 points and grabbing 4 rebounds, as well as posting a 21 PER. Just a reminder, a 15 PER is average. So yeah, he’s been pretty good so far. His playing days won’t last forever, and there is already speculation for what will be next. Could his future be as a coach? According to Yahoo! Sports, it seems possible. So this gang will shoot straight. They agree Woodson had everything to do with Wallace’s return. And they say Rasheed might be considering getting into coaching. “I know for a fact that’s his aspiration,” says Donaldson. “He loves to teach. I can see him as an NBA assistant. That’s what it’ll have to be for him.” The idea of Wallace as a coach has been discussed before – there’s even a “Coach Sheed Movement” – but it was quickly met with jokes about him getting tossed out of every game 30 seconds after the end of the national anthem. Yet this version of Sheed seems different. There have only been a handful of games, but they’ve passed without an outburst or flare-up. (At least until Friday night’s technical foul.) Imagine Sheed as a coach? I can tell you one thing, whatever team he coaches will be one of the toughest in the league, no matter who is on the roster. Rasheed Wallace is a very intelligent person and player, and he obviously has a ton of experience in the league. He’s been a star, a role player, and everything in between. He would certainly offer a lot to an organization as an assistant. -Mark Evans, Assistant Manager/Editor of Content Follow us on Twitter The post Rasheed Wallace Has Aspirations To Coach appeared first on Pass The Pill.
