It was an unassuming way to go, but if you know ‘Sheed, he probably doesn’t care. One of the greatest trash-talkers of all time, if he actually stays retired this time, and spends his remaining playing days tormenting fans in summer leagues and pro-ams, the NBA will never be the same. We’re all going to miss Roscoe. Read More »
