I heard someone call Shaq "Snack."  Funniest nickname I've heard in some time.   Smiley

I got him figured out pretty good.  His ego is as large as his big butt and as fragile as his durability.  He doesn't like to work hard in the offseason, he shows up overweight just about every training camp, he doesn't rebound or play particularly good defense.  And the Miami Heat won the title in spite of, not because of, Snack O'Neal.  He's not even the best center on his team at this point.  How the heck was named a starter in this year's All Star game?   Huh 

Now, he was the most dominant big man of the 90s and early 2000s, but he's done IMO. 

Can you tell I'm a Lakers fan?   Smiley

I'm still torn.  The Lakers would not have won three titles without him, despite Kobe's magnificance.

Never was magnificance, he was a ball hog, a very good ball hog at that. More hype than anything else. And can't do jack without a big maneither feeding him the ball or creating holes and plays. Just like Penny Hardaway.

Not me.  They wouldn't have won three titles without Shaq, Kobe, and Phil.  Remember Phil took basically the same team they had the year before his arrival and won the title.  And it was Kobe who often carried the team in the fourth quarter, particularly when fouls were an issue, because Snack can't make free throws.  

Nobody can touch Kobe's game IMO.  He does it on both ends of the floor.  Just a phenomenal player.  I hope the Lakers put the right pieces together before it's too late.  I think we are one player (a solid 4) away.

Well, he gets motivated about every third or fourth game, in between his extended absences due to injury.   Smiley  He is well past his prime.  Just look at his stats on any given game.  Last night he had as many fouls as he did rebounds.  He can dominate a quarter when he feels like it, but that's about it.

I do think Shaq is more into his law enforcement career than basketball now. You have to give him credit for all the good things he does off the court. He rented like 200 apartments for Katrina victims with his own dime. He is always making public appearances at no charge for charities. He actually gives his time and money to less fortunate.

So Snack has his "best" game of the year last night (according to ESPN):  22 points.  But he had more fouls (4) than rebounds (2).

Not to be a negative prick but O'neal is worthless pile of shit these days. He has no dedication to staying in shape in the off season. For the last 5 seasons He's been trying to play his way into shape every season so that he's ready by playoff time.

Yeah, I know he had a knee surgery. But did it occur to anyone that he wouldn't have all these knee and calf injuries if he would stay in decent shape year round to ease the load on his back and knees? I mean he weighs 340lbs and it's not fun to carry around that kind of weight as you get older. He's 35 years old and a shell of his former self. He really is in jeapordy of killing the dominant legacy of his prime with his current level of laziness and unwillingness to commit himself every season to staying in shape.

He doesn't work hard, plain and simple and he's lost a lot of respect by his peers.

I agree.  Remember several years ago with the Lakers he waited until right before the start of the season to have surgery that he knew was required at prior season's end?  His response:  I got injured on company time, so I'll rehab on company time.

That just further strengthens my argument.

Snack's line today:  14 points, 7 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 block, 5 fouls.  Total domination!   Smiley

If he played at least 28 minutes and racked up those numbers, then the writings on the wall for the big fella to consider hanging it up after this season.

He played exactly 28 minutes.  And most of his numbers are misleading, because they come in spurts, usually early, before he runs out of gas.

Didn't someone do a version of Jay-Z's "99 Problems" about Shaq?

It was called "99 Free Throws and You Can't Hit 1"

I've just tried to find it but can't.

Imagine the numbers Shaq could have racked up if he could even hit 70% from the line?

And how many games have his teams lost because he didn't hit free throws?  The sports media is afraid to touch this guy.

Rick Barry offered to teach Shaq the underhanded method and said he could get Shaq up to 75%.

But Snack said "no."  To his credit, he hired that free throw guru guy several years ago, for one season, who raised Snack's FT percentage to a career high (around 60 percent?).  But Snack doesn't respect the game enough to work on his free throws. 

I remember Magic coming into the league without an outside shot.  Spent hours in the gym and became a good shooter.  That's what great players who respect the game do.  Not Snack.

Snack's line last night in 24 minutes:  6 points, 5 rebounds, 1 assist, 5 blocks (shocking), 3 fouls.  And this man is an all star starter?

Your analysis of his consistently eroding skills is right on the mark.  Unfortunately, the problem we face as Lakers fans in criticizing him is that we sound like jilted ex-lovers, not much different than when he talks about the Lakers being a horrible organization, etc.  As such, I generally leave it for others to observe his failings.

I'll continue to do it.  No shame in my game.   Smiley  He's done and I'll keep saying it.  And I've been a Lakers fan since the days of Jamal Wilkes, Norm Nixon, and Bob McAdoo.   Smiley

Tough loss last night.   Cry
