Shaq Addresses Christine Bosh
 
Not sure if this was posted yet, excerpt from Shaq's book

[Shaq]
Quote:

“Some guys come into the league without a ton of props, so there’s not a whole lot of pressure on them. Then they sign a big deal and all of a sudden they’re thrown into the spotlight. Chris Bosh is like that. He’s getting all this attention, so he starts believing he’s really good. C’mon now. We know better. He’s a player who can put up some numbers, but he’s not an elite player. He was in Toronto eight years and they were never a factor, never a playoff team. Don’t get with those other two guys and start pounding your chest. I ain’t buying it, and I’m not the only one.”

It's a valid point and one I find difficult for anyone to dispute, but shaq is definitely looking to keep his name relevant.

word up big diesel!

DVS 11-15-2011 04:11 PM

can't be denied although I envy him. He still making millions and is playing in south beach. Although that giraff neck problably deters him of some fun.

Saying that shaq is pretty much spot on

its the truth... but theres a bunch of players like this. bosh isnt alone. its just funny because its him.

RAPMAN 11-15-2011 06:05 PM

Shaq is almost one hundred pounds heavier than Bosh. Toronto never had a center. Many times over the years, Chris Bosh had to guard Shaq. Shaq was made to bang and push, Bosh is a finesse player who will beat you with speed and agility. They are two different players. When he lost his skillset, Shaq has been just a big mouth in the NBA with clashes with Dwight Howard, Stan Vun Gundy etc.

Kevin Love? I guess he doesn't pound his chest, so no... what about Granger?

Shaq never did lose his skillset, he lost his ability to stay healthy and athleticism.

Please tell me you're joking.

Dude always had at LEAST one other All-NBA player on his team (Kobe, Penny, Nash, Lebron, Wade, KG, Pierce).

He never had to carry a team on his own or play with scrubs.... NEVER.

Take Kobe off of those Laker teams and replace him with Sonny Weems and you think they win 3 titles?

Now in contrast.... Bosh plays with other stars for the 1st time in his career and his team goes to the finals (and he plays VERY well in the playoffs).

Coincidence?

Exactly I'll say this much:

Bill Russell
Wilt Chamberlin
Kareem Abdul Jabbar

......Then you have

Dream
Shaq


Some of you guys don't like the guy I get it but Shaq IS the shit. He is on of the top 5 centres of all time. The reason teams were left to be a mess when he left is because he is that important and no matter what you need good players around you to win.


Bosh is really a PF he shouldn't even be compared to Shaq. He should be compared to guys like Time Duncan and KG which he will never come close to him. If Bosh and Karl Malone were the same age Bosh would be fitting Karl's cup before games he isn't even an argument. Bosh isn't even a Kevin Mchale.


Please ragging on Shaq and trying to prop up Bosh. I wonder whats next.

Take Shaq off those teams and they don't win.

Take Bosh off the Heat and start any somewhat competent PF and they still make the Finals.

LOL..... Tim Duncan and Karl Malone are probably the 2 greatest PFs ever to play the game (both also played on great teams from Day 1). There are MANY, many PFs who will never compare favourably to either of those guys.

As for top centers of all time?

I would put Hakeem right under Wilt. Never seen a C with footwork and defensive ability like his (Hakeem's). True all around game.

Shaq's not in their league.

Hell take that cap space and grab another player (PG) and you have a ring...
