Of course it was 'Sheed's fault. Isn't it always? Celtics Life has obtained a photograph of the New England Patriots ball attendant who has become a "Person of interest" to the NFL and it is one Rasheed Abdul Wallace. So sneaky.

From New York Times reporter Andrew Keh:"I talked to Sheed the other day," Kevin Garnett said. "He was at home, on the couch, being fat."— Andrew Keh (@andrewkeh) October 6, 2014This sounds about right to me. My guess is that as he prepares for his 20th NBA season, KG is probably more than a little jealous.Follow Mark Vandeusen on twitter @LucidSportsFan
Kevin Garnett is returning so he doesn’t get fat!
Kevin Garnett gave us an update on his return to the NBA, while using friend Rasheed Wallace as his inspiration, apparently. When asked about returning to the Brooklyn Nets for his 20th season, KG gave a classic response.

Retired fan favorite, former Jailblazers great and current Detroit Pistons assistant coach Rasheed Wallace turned 40 yesterday, and in celebration of Roscoe walking the planet for 4 decades as a badass rebel who plays by his own rules and believes in a honest ball. Artist Nathan Mckee from Portland, Oregon created this Instagram art piece that will make your Sheed loving day.
Rasheed Wallace put together a decent career, averaging 14.4 points, 6.7 rebounds and 1.3 blocks per game over 18 NBA seasons. Unfortunately for the short-tempered former 4th overall pick, he’ll be remembered far more for repeated technical fouls, ejections and other outbursts. Wallace set a seemingly unbreakable record during the 2000-01 season in which he picked up 41 technical...
Trash talking in the NBA is different now than it used to be. In fact, imagine the NBA with no trash talking (there was a time when that was the case, believe it or not). For this article, there’s some specific criteria as to what makes someone a good trash talker. Anyone can talk it, but not everyone can walk it.
To be considered a good trash talker, you had/have to back it up...
There is some astonishment right now with the San Antonio Spurs winning a title without some MVP-level player. But there shouldn’t be.

Don’t get me wrong Joe Dumars has made some solid moves as GM as the Detroit Pistons, trading Grant Hill for Ben Wallace, signing Chauncey Billups and Richard Himilton, and trading for Rasheed Wallace at the trade deadline in 2004. However, Dumars has made some bone-headed moves as GM also, and here I have displayed his top 10 worse moves.

When you are a player you are expected to be in to the game and if you react to something that happens no one thinks twice about it.

After watching Andre Drummond throw down a monster dunk...
Rasheed Wallace will coach you up in practice and then get you hyped after throwing down a strong dunk.
Former Pistons and now assistant coach Rasheed Wallace had a very ‘Sheed-like reaction after Andre Drummond’s poster dunk against the Atlanta’s Elton Brand last night while drawing the foul. Coach Wallace was probably even more boisterous in the locker room after the game as the Pistons rallied to a 115-107 win.
