And in other news....

Live from the Big Mouth Beat....

You take the good, you take the bad, you take it all and there you have the facts of life with Shaq:

"We have professionals who know what to do. No one is asking me to play with Chris Quinn or Ricky Davis. I'm actually on a team again."

"I don't give a (expletive) what Riley's disappointed in. Sue me."

I know you Shaq lovers will tell me that this is just Shaq being Shaq and besides, he's right.

But just imagine if Amare ran his mouth like this. Or if Kurt Thomas took a jab at having to play interior D behind Steve Nash and Leandro Barbosa or OMG! if Shawn Marion said something bad about his time at the Suns. We would freak the F#%k out.

So don't let Shaq off the hook on this one. It was uncalled for, unprofessional and an unwarranted cheap shot at some less then star caliber players.

Yes, that's right. Ricky Davis is not a star and even he doesn't deserve this kind of treatment from a "leader" in the league.

Oh, and Big Thanks to the Bobcats for making last night's loss just a little easier to take.

[Update by TexSUN]: Speaking of The Big Mouth, how about this bit from that same article?:

On the MVP race: "I'm probably going to have to go with Kobester (Kobe Bryant). He's an assassin with LeBron (James) coming right after."
OK, Amare: Until Shaq thinks you're the MVP, you're not the MVP. Got it? Good. Glad we cleared that up.
