Rasheed Not Worried About Technical Fouls: Doesn't Mean I'm Not

If you have not heard about it by now, Rasheed Wallace currently has a league high eight technical fouls, and three in the last three games. The current league rule states that after your 16th technical you will be suspended a game for each technical foul after number 16.

Right now Sheed is on track to pick up his 16th foul during the January 11th game against the Hawks, assuming he doesn’t calm down between now and then. If we also assume that Sheed keeps up with his trash-talking, call-questioning attitude, Sheed will pick up around 36 technicals this year.

Apparently Sheed is not as worried about these numbers as much as his coach and many Celtics fans are. Earlier today Sheed commented on his technical foul situation (Via the Boston Globe):

“I take that with a grain of salt. Before I even came here, this was never an issue for me. I don’t care about that. If they want to sit up there and call that (stuff) then fine, that’s cool. But my thing is don’t cheat me. I don’t care about all that technical foul (expletive).”

The fact that Sheed doesn’t care about this makes me kind of nervous. I think that this is the wrong attitude to have when the consequences may be missing multiple games at the end of the season.
