The Big Lie

Posted by and1grad on June 4, 2009

This is gonna be a rant.

I’m so sick and goddamn tired of people who werent paying attention to the Shaq/Kobe dissolution blaming Kobe for his departure and acting like Shaq was some kind of victim. Shaq, in his entire career, has NEVER been a victim. In fact, he’s been a villain. I know a lot of you love Shaq. Gregarious guy. Magnetic smile. But lets get real, people. Shaq has shit on a LOT of people and EVERY organization he’s left during his entire career and you all treat him like a fucking hero. It makes me sick. Since most are too lazy to actually do the research and find out what REALLY went on, let me do the few who stumble across this page the favor of doing it for you.

First things first, Shaq ran HIMSELF out of LA. I know how Kobe haters love their little conspiracy theories and other absurd made up reasons to hate the guy but the REALITY is that the Lakers HAD to get rid of Shaq. He forced their hand. For those that dont know, and those that conveniently forgot, Shaq NEVER came into a season in shape and ready to play. In the season before his departure, he spent the entire offseason BERATING the owner and went as far as to make derogatory comments and berate the owner DURING PRESEASON GAMES. Yelling insults at him & demanding that he pay whatever absurd amount he thought he was due while on the court. Who does that!?!? Not to mention, he was clearly on the downslope of his career while Kobe’s star was still rising. Apparently, thats Kobe’s fault as well, right? While he carries the Lakers for half the season while watching Shaq get the lion’s share of the credit. He should be begging this dope to stay, shouldnt he? Get the fuck outta here.

Second, if you look throughout Shaq’s career, he shits on every organization he leaves. After he left the Orlando Magic high and dry, he went about shitting on Penny Hardaway, who most would say is one of the nicest guys in the league. After he left LA, he shit on Kobe AND Phil. Phil had even written that book giving props to Shaq while virtually calling Kobe uncoachable and Shaq STILL turned around and said Pat Riley is the best coach he ever had, first chance he got. When he left Miami, he shit on Dwyane Wade and even some of the role players, who did nothing to deserve that. I couldnt believe he had the nerve to make comments about Wade’s toughness while its obvious to most that Wade gets hurt simply b/c he’s carrying that entire team and even carried their asses to a championship that they didnt deserve. He shit on Stan Van Gundy and the guy has only continued to prove to be an excellent coach. When he finally leaves Phoenix, how much you wanna bet he’ll shit on them somehow? He already took swipes at Steve Nash when he won the MVP, only to wind up playing with him. Lets see who’s next.

Lets get another thing straight. If you think the Lakers would have been able to SNIFF the Finals w/o Kobe on that team during their championship run, you’re out of your fucking mind. Some of you forget that the reason Duncan has so many championships, while coming out of the West, is because he’s made a career out of feeding Shaq his lunch. When Kobe came into his own, the Lakers started winning championships. The Lakers werent carried by Shaq alone, REGARDLESS of their giving Shaq the Finals MVPs.

Also, none of you should believe this JUNK about Shaq wanting Kobe to win. If that aint some Bernie Madoff-type fraudulent bullshit, I dont know what is. Just a year ago, the guy dissed Kobe in his freestyle at some party. Now Shaq the Gregarious is supposed to be on Kobe’s side? Sorry but…believing that makes you stupid. Hate to have to break that to those it applies to.

Shaqawockeez @ 2009 NBA All Star game

Posted by and1grad on February 16, 2009

This was the most entertaining thing I’ve EVER seen at an All Star game. For ANY league.

The NBA All Star game will miss Shaq when he’s gone.
