No more Sheed.

Rasheed Wallace announced his retirement from basketball, again, on Wednesday, after injuries prevented him from being able to consistently play in shape.

Here's the crazy part. Sheed actually played pretty well! At age 38, he averaged 7 points and 4 rebounds in 14.1 minutes of play in 21 games for the Knicks. He averaged 18.8 and 10.1 per 36 minutes. That's phenomenal for anyone, much less a 38-year-old.

But, mostly, we will miss Sheed for being Sheed. We will remember you, Sheed. We will remember you.
