common sense? coming from you that's coming is comic relief for sure.

you haven't bothered to consider the center position in the league; how it's changing/fading let alone that position on the lakers team.

obviously you don't see things this way. but your view is so myopic, there's no surprise there.

Shaq is fattening the cow. Riley must have something to do with this.

Calling Bynum untradeable is as stupid as it gets. Stop trying to make excuses for it. Now go away groupie; you know nothing, nada, zilch about basketball.

Damn I'm loving the Ignore function. Thanks.

Dirk got a woody probably. He is gonna abuse Haslem and Walker this series. Speaking of Shaq being humble, lol, I feel the same way about Shaq as Ric Bucher. This is from a recent online chat with NBA fans.

"Tracey (Miami, Fl.): Thanks for taking our questions Ric. In local media, Shaq has continuously called you one of his all-time haters. What issues do you have with him and why do you prefer Kobe?

Ric Bucher: When Shaq was being discounted as just a big lug who dunked the ball and was being frozen out of his first all-star game, I stood up for him. I knew he was a lot better than that. In his days with the Lakers before all the Kobe-Shaq mess, he was an unstoppable force. Now? He's paying for all those years he wasn't in great shape. In any case, it's not personal with me. Like KG said, there'd have to be something wrong with you not to like Shaq. He's a funny, personable guy. He's also a bit of a clown who hasn't always been dedicated to his job and frequently makes rude, insensitive comments. I watched a clip of him today telling us about how he's a humble big man. The next breath he's saying he was the baddest at every age he's ever been, including now. So which is it? With Shaq, as with every player, I've simply tried to portray them as I see them and not be misled by what popular opinion is. And the people I look up to? They don't tell me who and what they are. They show me. One last thing: there's a difference between being humble and being humbled. I don't prefer Kobe -- I respect his approach to his job and I feel he's been maligned as much as Shaq has been overly glorified. I'm just doing my part to try to balance the scales a bit. I don't see that as playing favorites. I see it as doing my job."

1) Yao Ming will be the last "traditional" dominant center

2) Euroleague teamball > American streetball

3) Shaq+Wade > Shaq+Kobe

Shaq has a point. Bosh, KG, Dirk, Jermaine and Gasol all play a more small mans game.

Josh Smith the prototype for the future PF imo. Athletic as hell and about 6'10. The P is going to have to stand for something else because the power in the position is dieing.

Also... Shaq has what 4 sons or something. Wonder if any of them end up in the NBA? Could be O'Neal vs Kemp every single night of the year in 15 years time :)

You must be Asian, or at least a delusional Rockets fan.

Anyone else notice that Shaq has been overly diplomatic this postseason?

He's projecting himself as a more humble, wiser version of Laker Shaq, which to him is enough basis for saying that he's better than he's even been.

Anyone else notice how shaq is going to "let his kids watch dirk." Probly taking this out of context but what is he going to not show his kids anyone else other than him playing?
