“[Stephen A.] Smith said that the Celtics counter the Heat’s athleticism with ‘brute size’ and Rasheed Wallace will come out of retirement to come back to the Celtics. Smith said Wallace told him that’s the plan, because he wants another shot at the Lakers in the NBA Finals.”
The C's already have size coming to the team. His name is Kendrick Perkins. Then you have Shaq and Jermaine. Adding Sheed puts a huge limit on minutes that can only be solved if Perk is not really healthy… or if Baby just sits against Miami. And I don't see either happening.
Furthermore… the C's have a full roster of 15. I don't know who they're going to give up on to bring Sheed back.
The worst thing is this will just fuel more "bring Sheed back" talk. If he was out of shape while playing for the C's last season… what kind of shape will he be in when he comes back from NOT being forced to practice? And what good is his size going to be if he's just taking ill-advised 3's?
Sorry.. I'm not buying it. I don't think Sheed is back in Boston this year.
