If 'Sheed must play (so Danny doesn't look bad for signing him) then the moment he shoots a 3, he should be subbed for. Simple as that. Josh Smith on the Hawks, you know the team that just swept you 'Sheed? Well he's more than a decade younger than you and he learned that he needs to stop gunning from the 3 point line. He has shot as many as 152 threes in a year. Want to know how many he has attempted this year? 3. And my guess is they were all at the end of quarters or at the shot clock buzzer. So I don't buy the whole "Well this is how he's always been. He's not going to change" argument. No this isn't how he's always been. He used to be a more athletic, better rebounding force. Now he's old and he needs to change. When you're putting up the numbers, people can live with some dumb choices. 'Sheed does't have that liberty any more. But he doesn't have to change; he can sit on the bench.
