Ball Don’t Lie! Here Are 8 ‘Sheedtastic’ Rasheed Wallace Moments

On this day 40 years ago, the greatest entertainer the basketball world has ever known was born.

Here are some of Sheed’s best moments, both as a player and coach. (Uproxx)

Tyler Zeller eager to earn starting center role for Celtics

Four days before his July wedding, Tyler Zeller learned that he had been traded to the Boston Celtics. He phoned his wife-to-be, Caitlyn, who was too busy preparing for the big day to answer her phone. "She was getting her hair done -- a practice 'do or whatever -- and her mom picked up. I was like, ‘I need to talk to my fiancé,’" explained Zeller. (ESPN.com)

UNC center Kennedy Meeks posts digital scale reading

UNC sophomore center Kennedy Meeks posted an image of a digital scale reading on his personal instagram account. The scale reads 266.64 pounds with the massage "getting close to my goals."

Lucas: The Climb Begins

Nate Britt had just completed six 50-meter sprints up a hill at the outdoor rec center on the Carolina campus. With the 2015 Tar Heels broken into groups by height, Britt had dominated his group of fellow guards, going 6-0. It was the first day of preseason conditioning, and the sophomore was feeling pretty good about himself. And then someone told him he wasn't finished, that this was just the start. (GoHeels.com)

Kendall Marshall Interview

Kendall Marshall: I grew up in northern Virginia, in Dumfries, about 20 minutes from DC. A lot of where I grew up is influenced by the DMV culture. I’m from the suburbs—I went to private school and everything, but I love where I’m from. What was your dad like as a coach? KM: My dad, when I was younger, it was more just for fun. When he realized I had a knack for passing the ball, he got a little more intense. (SLAM Online)

Tyler Zeller’s Celtics future

Offensively, Zeller improved from literally everywhere last season. After shooting an average to below-average percentage everywhere on the court but the free throw line as a rookie, his long legs took tremendous strides in 2013-14, improving as a more selective mid-range marksman and making a more concerted effort to get to the rim, where he lived during his 2012 ACC Player of the Year campaign.

30 years ago today, the Chicago Bulls signed Michael Jordan

The best day in Chicago Bulls history happened 30 years ago today when they signed their #3 draft pick from the 1984 draft to a deal of the century contract that paid Jordan less than a million dollars a year for his services. Not bad considering the Bulls attendance doubled by the end of Jordan’s rookie of the year season and not bad considering they didn’t even want to draft him. (Ball Is Life)
