In case you missed it (with the stinker of a season it’s turning out to be for the Dinos count your lucky stars if you did), the Phoenix Suns defeated the Toronto Raptors in rather convincing fashion this past weekend. In the game the big “Shaq-tus” Shaquille O’Neal torched the Dinos in the paint to the tune of 45 points. As if that wasn’t insult enough he offered up the following words to Raptors sometime star Chris Bosh after Bosh was heard complaining about the amount of time the refs let O’Neal plant his “Shaq-tus” posterior in the paint.
“I heard what Chris Bosh said, and that’s strong words coming from the RuPaul of big men,” O’Neal said. “I’m going to do the same thing (in their next meeting) I did before – make him quit. Make ‘em quit and complain. It’s what It’s what I do”
In the words of the great Borat “WOW, WOW, WEE, WAA!!!” The Rupaul of Centers. Really? That is a classic way to call out Bosh and his lack of toughness. I wonder how Bosh will retort a comment like that? (or for that matter I wonder how the CBC and gay rights leaders would handle such talk after their whole Pansification fracas last month?)
Perhaps CB4 will take to his twitter’ing device and send a nasty text messages towards Shaq? Better yet perhaps Bosh will get in his viral mode and produce another you tube video to take some shots at the Big Diesel with a mixture of witty repartee mixed in with some physical comedy via his alter ego Blane Harrington.
A third option would see Bosh retreat and channel back to his elementary school days and drop an oldie but a goodie on the Big Aristotle. He could simply yell out “I’m rubber, your glue, whatever you say to me bounces off me and sticks on you” bit the next time he hears Shaq throw down the Rupaul line on him. That will most definitely put O’Neal in his place. Er…Umm something tells me he should probably stick to the above two options.
The truth be told there’s only one ideal notion for CB4 to follow. Take O’Neal’s words and obvious discredit to his toughness and make himself a better player. He should show some fire out on the court and instead of claiming that he wants to be a MVP candidate – he should start to play like one.
The Raptors lack an identity on the court and according to most Bosh is their supposed leader. I’m not quite sure what kind of leadership it takes for a team to wallow to the depths that they have fallen into this season but apparently it doesn’t require a lot. I think the only thing Bosh can do about O’Neal’s comments is to follow the old adage of
DON’T GET BITTER………..GET BETTER!!!!!
