He was D-League quality? WTF? I guess Hollinger is seriously off the mark when he lists him as Chris Bosh's greatest comparable in his profile for him then?
Shareef put up Chris Bosh-like numbers for over 7 years, and was routinely the #1 option late in games for the Grizzlies and Hawks. He never came through.
I even remember one particular game in which the Hawks were tied with the Raptors
late, and Leo kept going on and on about how Shareef couldn't hit shots in clutch situations, and sure enough, he didn't and the Raptors
won. I wonder how long before he says the same about Bosh
(probably when Chris leaves, of course).
