“He was telling me, ‘Oh, I can guard you. All you’re going to do is go to the turnaround,’ ” Sheed recalled. “I said, ‘Dude, I taught you half of your (expletive). The teacher doesn’t show the student all his moves.’
“You know, I don’t show my whole package during the beginning of the season. If you do, then that’s what’s going to be in the scouting report on me.
