Rasheed Wallace's Guarantee Streak Is Over
It’s been tough watching the basketball gods reward Rasheed Wallace. Sure, the talent is ridiculous, but hearing Charlies Barkley and Kenny Smith pouring the praise on Rasheed last night was a little much. We know what a jerk this guy can be so having Kenny Smith yelling Roscoe – Sheed’s nickname – was a drag. Then the final blow was when John Thompson went into how much he loved Sheed. I guess you get respect for being on a championship quality team. The reason they were fawning all over the Human Technical? Because he had made another one of his guarantees, telling Cleveland that tonight would be their last game at home for the season. Well, the basketball gods apparently have had enough because Cleveland just won game 4 and put the Rasheed guarantee in the garbage can. Rasheed's charming comment: "They won tonight. You can't take that away from them. The sun even shines on a dog's ass." Gee, I hope this doesn’t turn him into a surly obnoxious jerk. That would be awful.
