Sheed was an endlessly entertaining player, but our favorite moments came when he yelled his signature "Ball don't lie!" phrase on the court.
The idea behind the "ball don't lie" phrase is this — when a player misses his free throws after a questionable foul call, that's the basketball gods' way of saying the refs made the wrong call. Therefore, the fouled player will not be rewarded with points he didn't rightly deserve.
In other words, when Sheed yells out "ball don't lie," he's basically saying "I'm right, you're wrong, and the basketball gods agree with me."
