I had lost interest in the NBA once Heat had no hope left. However, I am excited again -- it may sound bad but I really want the Suns to fail now. Shaq is a piece of garbage. It is always everyone else's fault and not his. The worth of a man really shows up when the chips are down not when things are great. And when the chips are down, Shaq is at his worst.

Hey, "Shaquila," honey, a "man" does not talk about his commrads like this.
The day that you cam back to Miami less than a couple of years ago with the NBA trophy in your hand, I said the great Alonzo Mourning, the corner stone of the Miami Heat, should have held it and not you. You see now, your ex-coach at Orlando, Penny, Kobi, Kupchak, Dr. Buss, your ex-wife, Pat Riley, Quinn, who plays his heart out for a fraction of your salary to put food on the table for his love ones, Ricky Davis and many others who have been trashed by you after your departure from many teams look so nice and smell like roses compared to your stupid, lazy and avenging azz. We all will see you in less than a year after being bought out by the Suns, heading for retirement and loneliness.

Shaq is only talking crap about the HEAT because he's trying to downplay how much WORSE the Phoenix Suns have gotten since he's arrived there. They've gotten worse because Shaquille O'Neal is WASHED UP!!!!!!!!!! He wants to bad mouth Chris Quinn and Ricky Davis, I for one am not a Ricky Davis fan but at least those two play with more HEART then his SOUR PUSS attitude. He wants to cry and pout on the Heat bench talking about he didn't get the proper care. THAT IS 150% BS!!!!! Know you know why his wife cheated on him?!? Because Shaq in his own head is a GOD and he thinks he's the greatest thing to ever walk the earth, no one's opinion matters but his own. He wants to talk down to everybody and nobody can talk bad about him. Bill Walton said the honest truth about Shaq's play. What does Shaq reply with? He violated big man code 342342 whatever BS fairy tale story he wants to create in his head. Newsflash BILL RUSSELL PLAYED 13 YEARS IN THE NBA AND WON 11 CHAMPIONSHIPS. HE WILL NEVER BE HIM! And the only reason he WON 3 championships with the Lakers is because the Referees didn't officiate him how they do now which is the correct way! He traveled and fouled all the time in the championship runs, Don't tell me you were a Shaq fan living in Miami during the Laker runs. Don't tell me you weren't screaming travel and offensive foul when Shaq was in the paint?! And if he was calling Dwyane Wade "wonder boy" behind his back? How classy is that? If it wasn't for that "wonder boy" Shaq wouldn't even have a 4th RING. WHAT AN UNGRATEFUL MAN!

What a classless piece of Krap. The Miami Heat is known around the league as one one the most respected organizations for all it's employees and players.
I just don't understand why he would do this but then again when I think of how he talked about other former teams he played on, it all makes perfect sense.

Why did anyone expect anything different???

Shaq has always been one of the more self centered people in a league that specializes in the art form. He has the maturity of a 5 year old. When the spotlight was on him, he was fine - but the moment the luster wore off (Dwayne Wade getting more press than him) it was downhill from there. He moped, he was injured, etc., etc., etc.

This is a classic example of why guaranteed contracts should be eliminated in the NBA. Had the Heat not had to pay the "Big Barcolounger" than his ass would have been outta here long ago. Instead, they had to keep making excusing for his lazy ass until Houdini could make him and his salary disappear to Phoenix.

Exactly what Shaq is, he is showing his true colors! Good riddens to a fat, slow, overpaid chump with an ego bigger than he is. No wonder he is going through a divorce, I hope she cleans his butt out! This dude has no respect for anyone!

Wow, it sure must be great to be perfect huh Shaq? I guess that some of the problems that the Heat experienced over the last 2 years werenít because you were injured a good part of both years or did not give much of an effort when you did play? So tell me, how much better are the Suns now with you now on their team?

This is typical of you to trash your former teammates when you leave a team. You are the biggest, and I donít mean because of your size, most self centered piece of garbage in sports.

Although I have not agreed with much of what Riley has done over the last 2 years, getting rid of this creep was absolutely the right thing.

He is right about Chris Quinn, he is an extremely weak NBA point guard.

Shaq simply mirrored the cartoon life that he lives in. If he wasn't a 7 footer he'd be working for a lawn cutting company. He's just a lazy NBA thug who thinks what he says means something. The only substance that he might have is he probably has more hot air in his system because he's tall.

Most of us have worked harder by 9AM on a Monday morning than you do all week. Phoenix will understand that in due time.

Thanks for proving you are an official jerk Mr. Shagilly Onealy and that Mr. Riley did make the right move with your sorry washed up has been life! By the way, with his back-stabbing personality, perhaps he should get with Canseco and write a book!

Well, I guess we are seeing the real Shaq now so he is fair game for the fans and we don't have to mince words. Shaq is a over rated, fat, no free-throw shooting nothing! Shaq is the worst excuse for a basketball player in the whole league. Like 'Zo called it years ago, "Shaq's not good, he's just so big". Hey Shaq, where did you get that shooting touch? The aren't many junior high school players that have a shooting touch as bad as Shaq. How can anyone be in the NBA when they shoot free-throws like you do Shaq. I would much rather have Ricky Davis than two of your lard A%$ you big dope! Thank goodness we tricked the Suns into letting us dump you on them. Their days of contending are over now that your worthless, has-been, slow,overweight butt is hanging around their necks. No wonder your wife left you and your big ego. I hope she takes most of the $millions that you stole from Micky. And one more thing, looks like Kobe was right about you all alone. Go Lakers, hope they kick the Sun right out of the 1st round. Shaq, you ain't nothing!!!

It's amazing to me how someone who was making $20,000,000.00 to sit on his big butt could trash his teammates. Past history is an indication of what the future holds. I am sure his new teammates can expect the same. Shaq will never be as great in the eyes of fans as some of the other big men that have come in the league. He is just too damn lazy. He is a big clown who says things to promote his own selfish agenda.
