Alright, so I like the fun, lovable Shaq as much as the next guy, but as a follow-up to the Van Gundy flopping story, I have to add a few things. First off, I never mentioned Shaq’s rant on Van Gundy where he ripped Stan a new one, calling the Magic coach a quitter who’s never been anywhere or won anything. Just because you’ve won four rings doesn’t mean you need to go out there and attack someone verbally in such an assaulting fashion the way Shaq did. In addition to that, there’s the Kobe rap, the Rupaul comments about Chris Bosh, and the way Shaq puts down Dwight Howard that makes me lose respect for The Big Fella. Last but not least, this got past me somehow last week, but it’s so compelling I felt it was necessary to post. Witness:
Like I said, Shaq: classy as always. I understand the spirit of competition but this seems to go slightly farther than that in my eyes. If that’s not his ego showing through, I don’t know what it is.
