The Big Aristotle Retires

The Big Shamroq
Sports Illustrated: “BOSTON (AP) He was a prolific producer of rebounds and record albums. And nicknames, too, as if at 7-foot-1 and 350 pounds he was too big for the simple “Shaq” that made him an instantly recognizable, one-name star in all of his endeavors.”

Shaquille O’Neal is my favorite modern day player, period. The game will miss him, as will I.

ESPN, or TBS, you’d better hire this guy.


The Diesel a Celtic

Boston Celtics LogoYahoo! Sports: “Actually, he’s not hiding at all. He’s not flying low to the ground and he’s not slumming. Short of zooming back to Los Angeles (hard to do on a burned bridge) or Miami (ditto), he’s signed with the most storied franchise this league has. One of the more popular, one of the most prominent and one of two that you last saw playing official hoops a month and a half ago. The Celtics.”

I love Shaq! Always have, probably always will. I hope Boston can pull off another championship, it would be nice to see the Big Aristotle win another ring, then ride off into the sunset.
