5. College Career: Sheed left UNC as the ACC's all-time leader in FG percentage at an amazing 63.5%- mostly on the strength of rim-shaking dunks like the ones pictured. (Note: Every time Duke plays UNC ESPN shows a video montage of past highlights that always includes a Stackhouse dunk from the game pictured on the right, leaving out this Sheed dunk- despite the fact that it was clearly the superior dunk. This infuriates me.)
Stat lines like this: 13/19 FG, 7/8 FT, 33 points, 6 Rebounds, 5 blocked shots, 4 fouls in win vs. Joe Smith and Maryland, semifinals, ACC tournament highlighted Rasheed's legendary 2 year run through the ACC. Somehow the Golden State Warriors still chose Joe Smith with the #1 pick in the 1995 draft; they made the playoffs this year for the first time since 1994.
Basketball aside, it was reportedly known that if Rasheed could not be located during his time in Chapel Hill (this was prior to widespread use of cellular telephones)- to head straight for the campus arcade, where Sheed would undoubtedly be found playing Mortal Kombat II or NBA Jam. He actually conducted interviews there, and once tried to motivate his teammates with the line "Let's go out and play like we're Chicago on NBA Jam." Sheed still carried a solid 2.9 GPA at Carolina, yet never chose a major in two years. Apparently he was more concerned over whether to go with sub-zero or scorpion.
