Shaq is a terrible guy that boasts his two strong elbows.maybe his huge and powerful body bomb is his deadly weapon to win every opponents.
Damn, I wish I'd
said that, kool.
In 1992, when I was living in Florida and Shaq was still with the Magic (in fact, if I am not mistaken, it was his rookie season) I went to see the Rockets play them in Orlando Coliseum.
A classic Dream-Shaq matchup did not happen; Hakeem stayed outside, floating around from the top to the bottom of the lane and only posting up once or twice. Shaq was effectively finessed by Olajuwon, who was rising to the top of his game at that time.
A few years later they played for the title, and Dream got the better of Shaq then, too.
To me Shaq's huge and powerful butt
is as deadly for opponents as his elbows. His body broke down on him a good bit last season; he put off the toe surgery and, when he did rejoin the team, was overweight. He reportedly has a personal trainer and intends to show up in November fit, strong, and hungry to reclaim the Lakers' title. If he does (and if Kobe Bryant doesn't have to go to prison for rape), then the Lakers stand out as a force...again.
Let's hope the body bomb is a dud. :wink:
There's another thread in A2K entitled "Shaq, Yao, and Race" that covers the brouhaha that erupted last year when Shaq mocked Yao by using a contrived English-spoken-with-an-Asian-accent.
Yao handled the episode with class and grace.
So not only is Yao more skilled than Shaq, he's a better person as well.
