Sorry Shaq, But You Are No Kareem OR Biggie

Posted in Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Los Angeles Lakers, Shaquille O’Neal, Tim Duncan on June 24th, 2008 by Michael Tillery

Man this shit ain’t news. Baseball must suck right now.

Shaq can’t rap…it’s as simple as that. Michele back me up on this.

What the hell? Shaq waits until the Lakers lose to come out with some bitchassness like this?

Tim Duncan can say the same to you after your team gave up the guts and lost in the first round. Kobe just lost to a better team-in the Finals.

You whined your way out of Miami just to get punched out of the first round and now you want to clap? That’s foul Shaq and you damn well know it.

Never thought I’d say it, but I hope Bean boofs it on your head next year so you can join your point guard in some true Kobe vine tasting.

Yeah was a freestyle with tongue in cheek, but it’s still foul. No matter how you slice and dice it.

Wade on getting in shape to play on the US National team this summer: “My body will be good. Next week I start working out with my trainer, Tim Grover in Chicago. My trainers from Miami all come down and we all get to work on my body. I’m trying to get as healthy this year as I’ve ever been in my life. They Olympics are very important, not only for me but for the USA…I’m 100% in, unless somebody else tells me that I can’t play.”

Smith on the Dallas Mavericks being intimidated by their opponent the last two playoffs: “Last year, the Dallas Mavericks were intimidated to a degree by the Golden State Warriors. And it wasn’t just the fact that (Golden State) was better than (Dallas), but they felt they could be physical with them and they could intimidate them. So now it’s the first round against New Orleans and they are going to do what Golden State (did).”
