When you're down, I can see using that as a strategy. But when you're up 10, 15 points, there's really no need for that. That's a coward move. And he knows that. I'll make 'em pay for that.So it's cool to employ Hack-a-Shaq if you're behind. But if you're winning the game, the tactic is an admission of cowardice. Just so we're clear on the ground rules.
Moments later, Shaq asks how he's supposed to stay in front Tony Parker if the Phoenix guards (hi Steve!) can't, and noted a blown assignment by an anonymous teammate (whaddup, 'Mare?) on Tim Duncan's [expletive] three to get the Spurs to overtime in Game 1.
Awesome times ahead, everyone! Shaq's still alive!
