â†µ â†µBack to Shaq, though. I don't know what Kobe did or didn't do to break up Shaq's marriage. Message to the big guy: It sounds like you committed at least some of the human error yourself. And more importantly, why exactly do you have a basketball leg to stand on here? You were supposed to save the Suns, provide inside punch despite being over the hill, and once again play championship messiah. Anyone remember what happened way back in May? Your Suns got bounced in the first round, by the same Spurs team that Kobe humilated. How'd that taste? I mean, sure, in you prime, you were one of the greatest (when motivated), and key to the Lakers winning. But you've always needed flashy perimeter guys like Penny, Kobe, and Wade. â†µ
â†µI guess it's the off-season, and anything goes. Even placing yourself above Kareem, who last I checked was supposed to be untouchable. Whatever. Let's just post this clip multiple times today and watch the money pile up. Because being squeaky-clean, following the story, and uplifting the game is what we're all about.â†µ
