I don't understand a lot of things people do in life.  I don't get the fascination with Blackberry's and the need to have a cell phone attached to your hand at all times.  I don't understand why people can't merge correctly.  I don't get why people watch the TLC Channel. I don't understand why people buy Hummers if they live in Northern Virginia.   But what I really don't understand is why Rasheed Wallace loves taking three pointers so much. 

It doesn't make sense why a 6'11", long armed,  extremely skilled player with a deadly turn around jumper settles for threes again and again.  I don't even care if he was 100% from three this year.  The fact that he has been missing a lot more than making as of late, makes it that much worse. Look, at the start of the year I wrote about how I loved the fact that Sheed can stretch defenses, and I still do.  At the same time, I don't want him jacking up contested threes when he could be posting up smaller forwards and rebounding inside. 

I don't care about Rasheed getting technical fouls. I'd rather have him get a technical every game than jack up threes all day.  I wish Wallace had more of "Nasty" Daniels's decision making.  We know this guy can have his way down low because we have seen it. Why do players try to make the game harder than it is? If Rasheed really wants to hold true on his prediction of beating the 96 Bulls record for wins, he needs to get down in the post and stop playing like a shooting guard. Happy Friday the 13th everyone!

    Hmm, I obviously agree that 'Sheed needs to shoot less 3's and play down low more, but if he was 100% though? I think I'd let it slide then. lol.

    To anonymous: Not sure if we're doing a Live Game Chat tonite, but the Chat room is always up and running. Thanks for your interest.

    Yeah if he was even 40% I'd totally let it slide ;)

    DO you younger cagers remember Dave Cowens going out side?

    How about Hank Finkel???

    If there was a three point line they may have looked for it.
