dude, i have an ingrown toenail, and it hurts like hell.

this isn't *stupid*, it's *sad*
2002-02-07 01:26:47 AM  
Shaq=pussy, plain and simple.
2002-02-07 01:28:56 AM  
Think of how big his toe is. It's gotta hurt pretty farking bad if it's *THAT* big.
2002-02-07 01:29:35 AM  
"overuse of his toe"? This guy is so scared of Oakley its pathetic. Notice who hacks him in the incident with miller,it was Oakley yet Shaq goes after the white guy with his back turned.
2002-02-07 01:50:17 AM  
Oakley didn't play either, Missinglink.
2002-02-07 02:03:02 AM  
This isn't boxing.. if he doesn't wanna play because he's got sore feet, let him rest so he'll be better for the next game. Stupid that this was ever submitted.
2002-02-07 02:06:19 AM  
his toe isn't near as big as his pu$$.
2002-02-07 02:12:59 AM  
Resident Asian Guy - I guess it was Miller he was scared of all along.
2002-02-07 02:18:23 AM  
And the Bulls win again.
2002-02-07 02:19:41 AM  
you guys wouldn't give shaq this kinda shiat to his face
2002-02-07 02:20:50 AM  
Halx you're right... they arn't tall enough!

2002-02-07 02:29:22 AM  
i wouldn't kiss his ass like some people do though.
Shaq embodies everything that is wrong with the NBA. Him and Iverson.
2002-02-07 02:46:57 AM  
What's wrong with him and Iverson?
2002-02-07 03:03:09 AM  
its hard to put this just the way i want to, but they just bug me. iverson plays a really poor style of basketball. he scores a lot but watching him go one-on-one with someone all night long is stupid. shaq should just have his mouth sewn shut. i probably would like shaq if he didn't love himself so much.

I dont know how this could hae the "Stupid" tag when the guy is suffering from arthiritis in his toe and recovering from foot surgery. This isn't a stubbed toe people.
2002-02-07 04:32:36 AM  
Common people, you have to admit, toe pain hurts! You stub your toe, your gonna cuss! Owwwwie!

Shaq is being a big time...

Shaq want to skip the All-Star game and rest his foot. If he shows up for the game right before the All-Star (the Bulls game), the league won't let him skip it, even if he says he's hurt (how come he's not hurt to the Bulls game and not to the All-Star)
2002-02-07 09:39:55 AM  
Given the fact that he makes WAY more money than I do, I would expect that he should play thru the pain. If I were making that much money, I would do it.

Geez...what a wimp...get yo a$$ of the bench and play...

Just my two cents...now I'm broke.
2002-02-07 09:47:14 AM  
Okay, my previous post got deleted...must have been a "dirty word" in there...oh well. Basic gist of it here:

Shaq is making way too much money to be sitting on his buttocks...can I say that? If I were making that much money, I would be willing to play through the pain.

Just my two cents...now I'm broke.
2002-02-07 09:49:25 AM  
doh...maybe it didn't get deleted...

Still learning this posting thing.
You know how that goes.....I know you do...

For as much as he's paid, he should have to pay.

Quit whining you big overpaid, overated, trashtalking monkey.
2002-02-07 10:12:50 AM  
Shaq=Big Boss Man.

wants to be a cop and punches like a girl
2002-02-07 10:32:21 AM  
He's afraid of Brad.
2002-02-07 11:25:14 AM  
Wuss. That's why they took a big fat 'L'
2002-02-07 12:47:14 PM  
Why not just amputate the toe?
2002-02-07 12:54:14 PM  
None of you assholes could run up and down a basketball court for 40 minutes, with or without a toe injury, so how about a nice warm cup of STFU?
2002-02-07 01:20:54 PM  
Boorite - But none of us "assholes" are paid to do that. If you didn't perform at your job, would they still be willing to pay you the "big bucks"? I think not.

The Bulls swept The Lakers 2-0 this year.
I wonder what the odds in Las Vegas were at the beginning of the season that would happen?
And I got props on all you Lakers fans now.
Ha Ha Ha etc.
2002-02-07 07:39:41 PM  

ahhhh, the sign of a true fan. able to find something good in a miserable season.

btw, im a skins fan... so i know what you are feeling.

Try supporting his big frame with an 'arthritic' toe. I'm certain most of you pussies would cry to your mommas. Nevermind actually playing on it, WHICH HE DID. He's just resting so he can be in good shape when he'll be needed.

Oh yeah. He would simultaneously beat down those two fags without a problem. The punch he threw, was intentionally missed. If you notice the replay, he hesistated when he had a GOOD look.


You are an idiot.


Yes, they have a problem getting up for the weaker teams. In the end it was a meaningless loss. It's far too early in the season to be stressing as well as they play. Just watch how they change their perspective once the race for 1st in the west heats up nearing the end.

I've always been critical of Shaq. Whenever he was making a movie (god help us) or a rap album, I'd have to say to myself, "Hmmm... why isn't he working of free throws?" If he's happy letting his team down with one aspect of his game, why doesn't he improve it. It seems selfish to me. Also, more often than not, he behaves like a jackass when he's interviewed.

Arthritic toe... god damn, that's gotta hurt. It might be time to retire.
