Oh, you knew it was coming sooner or later.
2002-01-13 08:46:10 AM  
Shaq's been a baby since he was at LSU.
2002-01-13 09:10:23 AM  
Boobies, Photoshops and ass kickings. Fark == All that is good.
2002-01-13 09:22:00 AM  
Dayum Shaq, get a farking grip.
2002-01-13 09:25:52 AM  
'punching foul'? i didn't know basketball had a 'punching foul'. is there one in football? and if so, whats the hand gesture the refs do when calling it?
2002-01-13 09:58:09 AM  
Shaq punched him while he had his back turned.......
I dont think anything more needs to be said about it.....
2002-01-13 10:02:36 AM  
He hits like a girl. He's an idiot.
2002-01-13 10:09:41 AM  
Shaq got fouled hard By Charles Oakley. Shaq evidently thought it was Brad Miller, or maybe Shaq wanted nothing to do with Oakley. Shaq throws punch at Brad Miller's head, whose back is facing Shaq. Shaq misses Miller with blatant sucker punch. But then I talk too much about Shaq. Notice how one black guy screws another black guy over and a white guy almost suffers a devastating sucker punch because of it.
Way to promote your sport, you animals. This is one of many reasons why the N.B.A. sucks.
2002-01-13 10:30:38 AM  
Yeah shaq missed with a sissy punch
2002-01-13 11:26:16 AM  
What's worse?..........Shaq the boxer or Shaq the free throw shooter?...........or maybe Shaq the actor?.........Or Shaq the Rapper?...............Someone tell me again why this guy is worth $200 million?
2002-01-13 11:28:57 AM  
basketball is a little girls sport anyways. A one game suspension for just throwing a punch? Sounds like a sport for little girls...
2002-01-13 11:33:12 AM  
Being a fan of professional basketball, I can pronounce for this instance (in an authoritative fashion) what is generally the case here on the boards of Farkdom:

nobody here has a clue what they are talking about

Shaq is getting fouled every game and hard. Nobody is fouling with the intention of playing the ball. They simply swipe at his face or his body. This has been allowed because he is larger and stronger than everyone else. He has historically shown a great deal of restraint but eventually it would be enough to get to anyone. I'm just glad that he really wasn't very coordinated in throwing the punch, less he have killed Miller.

Besides, he wanted a few extra days to rest his foot before the San Antonio game next Friday.

Slayer, your comments are completely assinine.

I feel better now.
2002-01-13 11:42:44 AM  
Shaq Fu was a really really bad game. What did you expect in real life?
2002-01-13 12:07:50 PM  
If Shaq could hit a free throw, then he wouldn't get fouled as much. And the league wouldn't have to have that hack-a-shak rule.

Brad Miller was such a puss when he played for Purdue. He would take one hard foul and spend the rest of the game crying or pouting like a baby.
2002-01-13 12:08:23 PM  
Hey, Hanky, I'm sure it's tough being a Lakers fan.
2002-01-13 12:08:50 PM  
Regardless of your opinion, I say watch the video. Shaq went after the wrong guy, and the way he went about it was totally inappropriate/thug like. The one thing I agree with you about is it was a good thing Shaq didn't connect, otherwise he'd be in jail for manslaughter. Someone with your high I.Q. should be able to see something as obvious as this.
2002-01-13 12:14:08 PM  
Hoosier, too bad Shaq has already showed no interest in improving his FT-shooting. Many coaches have been brought in to help him, and he ignores them all. He was even taught the underhand style (which, btw, is better because it creates more arc), but Shaq refused to do it because it looked stupid. Way to help your team, ass. Gotta protect your image of the giant thug.
2002-01-13 12:19:17 PM  
Yes, Shaq sucks and you guys are great.

Why so much bitter jealousy?
Some of you sound like desperate little men who watch timidly as life passes them by.
2002-01-13 12:23:55 PM  
Sorry Dg, we will start sucking Shaq's schlong the way you do.
2002-01-13 12:25:54 PM  
Shaq is a great basketball player, one huge mofo, gets fouled hard every game...still: he punches like a girl!

what a wuss.

ps: LSU bleauxs.
2002-01-13 12:31:33 PM  
screw basketball play a mans game like full contact lawn darts or pin the tail on the rabid doberman
2002-01-13 12:34:50 PM  
I'm not a Shaq fan. In fact, as a Celtic, I hate him.

I just get a kick out of all the tough guys here who have never been - and never will be - in a position to prove their toughness.

Just a bunch of annoying Chihuahuas barking at the world behind a window.
2002-01-13 12:37:04 PM  
Well then Dg, why don't you tell us all about how you have proven your toughness.
2002-01-13 12:38:07 PM  

You are nothing but a little NBA fanboy who is blinded by Shaq's supposed greatness. Dumb ass.
2002-01-13 12:47:30 PM  
I agree with Hanky.
2002-01-13 12:47:51 PM  
I agree with Dg - lots of little jealous people in this world.
2002-01-13 12:52:01 PM  
What's with the headline?

No one's ass was kicked.
2002-01-13 12:56:40 PM  
I saw it happen and all the replays, but can someone explain to me what Miller did to get tossed. Oakly tried to foul shak and missed, hitting miller, then shak tries to hit miller and misses, then shak, oakly and someone else scrum on top of miller, wtf did miller do?
2002-01-13 12:57:11 PM  
Something tells me that Charlie is a pole smoker from Auburn.
2002-01-13 01:00:51 PM  
I agree with Hanky. Thankfully Shaq didn't connect on his first punch. I was watching it on TV and that would have put Miller out for a day or two. All you idiots who say he's sissy are farking idiots. If Shaq was mad at you, you'd be running for the hills.
2002-01-13 01:06:02 PM  

Are you out of your mind? Shaq is the hardest fouler in the game and he gets away with murder!! Refs let him do whatever he wants because he's a big star. I guess they think it's good for the game if his stats look good. He is constantly elbowing people in the face. He deserves to be ejected for the season for his cowardly sucker punch from behind.
2002-01-13 01:14:22 PM  
And another thing,

Shaq didn't go after Oakley because he knew he was going to get his ass totally kicked if he did. So he hit the white guy from behind instead. Yeah Shaq is really tough. If he were't so huge, he would be nothing.

Partially right, my friend. Shaq Fu was A HUGE STEAMING PILE OF DOG CRAP! Especially the Sega Genesis version.

Halx: Is it tough going through life looking like a homosexual retard?
2002-01-13 02:09:16 PM  
This is not the first time Shaq has been in a tussle. A while ago he rumbled with Barkley after he threw the basketball at his head, but that was nothing more than playful wrestling. I think on his sophomore year, he had a similar fight but didn't really connect on the punches.
2002-01-13 02:52:57 PM  
ShaQ has the worst aim. Is he blind? He missed that pastey guy's head by a mile. That would have been sweet if he would of connected, That dude would have been knocked out cold for sure

Shaq sux
Go Spurs
2002-01-13 02:53:54 PM  
Shaq is a crybaby POS.

He's the one that is always crying about some pussy injury (what was that last one, sore toe??), some policy within the NBA that's he's in violation of and generally being a crybaby.

Play your goddamn sport, shut the fark up, and work on your freethrows.

Shaq sucks
2002-01-13 02:56:17 PM  
Damn . . . are any of you guys over 18??
2002-01-13 03:09:11 PM  
Damn . . . are any of you guys over 18??

Why? You got a fetish for young boys or something?
2002-01-13 03:34:48 PM  
So, did anyone else notice that , probably because shaq was ejected, that the lakers actually lost to THE BULLS? I think this is a sign that their championship run is over :).
2002-01-13 04:12:17 PM  
I was waiting for the Shaq-fu to appear.......

didn't have a logo, myself.. GLAD TO SEE IT....
2002-01-13 04:26:51 PM  
No, Porkgod, cause I got a girlfriend who would make you cream your pants if you just saw her. Shortrigger
2002-01-13 04:33:46 PM  
Saulsa-Hilarious retort.

Lakers Lose
2002-01-13 04:41:08 PM  
Yet another reason people should boycott the bullshiat world of professional sports. People quit going, players stop getting paid obscene amounts, maybe they'll stop acting like biatchy prima donnas.
Read a book, it's good for you.
2002-01-13 04:42:49 PM  
Thanks RyanMac.

Ok Halx,time to back it up. Some visual proof please. If you have a girlfriend that is.
2002-01-13 04:46:57 PM  
Oh yeah, I forgot that it's fashionable to not give a damn about anything. My sincere apologies for finding it wrong that this fool can try to assault someone, not get in trouble with the law, only lose a couple days work, and still be paid an obscene amount.
Maybe we should start taxing schoolteachers extra so we can pay our athletes MORE.
2002-01-13 04:52:35 PM  
Hey dumbarses,

The Lakers have won two NBA titles in a row. Why? Because of Shaq and his genuine greatness. I am so glad he decided to go off last night. By the way, Miller got ejected not really for the fight, but for handing Shaq a Level-Two Flagrant Foul, which entails an automatic ejection. If any of you guys actually watched the game (it was on nationally on WGN by the way) you would known why Shaq had such a problem with the way the Bulls were attacking him on every play. I give you guys the fact that he couldn't punch worth crap though. Only a year or two ago did Shaq try to connect with fatty Barkley and missed too.
2002-01-13 04:52:46 PM  
Saulsa, glad you mentioned it. My GF Jessie and I are cooking up a little webpage to post on Fark later this month. You will get your proof then. Look for a boobies tag with the line: Farker Halx's girlfriend. ... Or something to that effect. See ya then.
