Lee as much as it can mean over a comment board, sorry for the harsh tone and language. I suppose I decided to let out my lockout frustration on a message board to someone I dont know. Like you, I enjoy(love) Delonte as a player. From the numerous interviews with him that I have seen, although to some he has an unusual sense of humor, he honestly seems like a good person. Some of his tweets may seem off putting, but no matter who you are, we all have our problems. Really all I wanted to say is I hope when Celtics basketball starts back up Delonte is with the team. Sorry again. Thank you Dre for speaking up as well.

Nazr would be a solid backup but I dont see Charlotte buying out their starting center. Funny story: I was at the Red Claws Sunday when they played against Toine's team from Idaho. Guess what 'Toine said after a Red Claw missed the tech for a defensive 3 second violation called on 'Toine? "Ball Don't Lie"

How about you address my point rather than constantly referring to these links? I'll look at them though, so please post them if you want. Say Shaq and Semih both can't go in the playoffs, would you be content with Perk JO KG and Davis as the only bigs or would you like a little more insurance? If you would like a little more insurance what other options are out there better than Sheed? Regarding my cursing, I could use more polite language, but in the words of KG "fuck it"

A lot of good the celt's chemistry did them last year in game 7 when they only had one healthy center. Chemistry questions came up when cassell, marbury, shaq, and delonte came to town... but died quickly when they all jelled pretty well

What the fuck do "last year's posts" have to do with whether or not sheed would be a valuable addition to celtics for the stretch run? If you are questioning my knowledge of the celtics I have been a season ticket holder since pierce's rookie year. Clearly you dont understand that if 1 or 2 of the celtics bigs are injured come playoff time sheed would help more than von wafer. I bet you think sheed was responsible for the celts "sleepwalking" through the road games against the hawks in the first round of '08 too huh? Without sheed last year the celtics dont reach a game 7. Quit hatin

Sheed played in 79 of the celts 82 reg season games last year. All four centers already have missed a game this year. Would I trust kg, baby, and luke as our only bigs? No. Von currently plays almost no minutes, when delonte comes back he will only play during blowouts. Basketball ain't in sheed's heart anymore? Please. Sheed wouldn't come back to play major minutes like last year, only to fill in 10 mins or so if a big or two goes down.

...until semih requires surgery on his shoulder, jo/shaq get hurt, or perk doesn't recover as fast as expected. hopefully none of this occurs, but would you bet on it? Alls I am saying is wait and see how the health of our bigs holds up before writing off sheed. Whats the old saying when it comes to winning basketball games? you can never have too many... (hint: it aint von wafers)

Perk going down early in game 6 was a shock to the celts at the time and nearly an impossible obstacle to overcome. Game 7, with time to game plan for life without perk, was a different story. Sheed was far from the ideal MLE signing last year. But this year, as a 3rd string big, yes please. You are lying to yourself if you think he wouldn’t be an upgrade over non-rotation players such as von or luke. An unhealthy kg/pierce/perk was the biggest reason for the Celtics struggles last year, not sheed.

Perk got hurt game 6. To say sheed influenced kg, pierce and ray to "sleepwalk through a finals game" is not only ludicrous, but disrespectful to the big 3's commitment to the game.

Our 4 centers (perk, shaq, jo, erden) have all missed time due to injuries. No one is saying bring sheed back now, but if one or two of those guys aren't healthy towards the end of the season (definitely possible) he would be 100X more valuable to have on the bench than von or luke (especially when delonte is back). I'd take sheed over anyone from the scrap heap of bigs that are usually available at the deadline (joe smith, mikki moore). Are you saying you wouldn't want sheed on this team under any circumstances?
