"I never expect fans to feel sympathetic about it," O’Neal said. "We should pay taxes like everybody else. We should pay more because we make more. I voted for President Obama, but I knew his focus was to come after people like myself. The majority of our country is struggling. If you have to pay more taxes to bring down the deficit and spread the wealth, I’m all for it. I’m blessed to make a lot of money."

Suns ripped for improper tanking

Eventually, cluelessly obvious teams like the Suns are going to ruin it for all the teams (like the current Magic and Cavaliers) who are actually a bit suave about their tanking. So yes: Phoenix can't even lose properly. Well done, y'all!

"The deal was contingent, on our end, on Curry being there," former Suns GM Steve Kerr told Arizona Sports 620's Burns and Gambo Friday. "And when he was still there, we were under the impression that we had a deal and unfortunately in the NBA, and I'm sure in every sport, nothing's done until the trade call is made so it fell through after that," he said. "We looked at him as our next Steve Nash."

I was honestly impressed they were using real meat; I expected ground up lingonberries, particle board, and a puréed orange FLÜRM.
