Heat is On
I have no idea why but I've found myself secretly rooting for Shaq in recent years, considering I'm all 'bout the underdogs and Shaq is anything but an underdog.
Kobe? Definitely has something to do with it.
The self-given nicknames? Well, the Big Aristotle is pretty bad ass.
Or, it may very well be the pimped-out hats he's been sporting. (See the MTV photo for an example)
So needless to say, I'm a little disappointed that I passed out before the end of last night's NBA Final game, the one in which Shaq and D Wade proved you needn't have a penchant for bending hotel workers over chairs and having your way with them to win a basketball championship.
