Shaq--Who knew?

As a die-hard Knicks fan in the early 90's (there will be a serious run-off when it comes to naming my first son--Frank V or Oakley Nolan), it was my sworn duty to despise Shaquille O'Neal from the second he entered the NBA. It was not hard to root against the man-child early on: he seemed to lack respect for the older players in the league (see: PA-trick Ewing), he relied on his size more than his skill and he was just so damn good. Over the course of his career, which I can't say I have followed more closely than most NBA stars, I have grown--grudgingly--to like Shaq. He makes his teammates better, he is as graceful an athlete as you can get for a 7'1", 330 pound behemoth, he is one of the smartest players in the league, and he has far more respect for the game and the greats than my 13-year-old self was aware of. Check out this article from espn.com. Not to sound too much like Rick Reilly, but Shaq really is one of the good guys.

It's Friday here in our nation's capital, so while Eric and I will surely be verbal-blogging all weekend, posting will be light-to-non-existent for yours truly.
