And the eating.. He had a tough time keeping in shape too. He was great in his prime.. just a waste of talent. He could've had a Rasheed Wallace type of career (with less technicals though )- being a stellar starting PF and few time all star on some good teams. Regarding that comparison - Baker was better offensively and not as good defensively.

Prime Vin Baker was more productive than Sheed ever was. I'd rather compare him to Elton Brand in terms of impact and performance
