How about a series of direct-to-video features ala The Ewok Adventures? Like a Jar Jar & Boss Nass buddy movie. They could be the next Laurel & Hardy. (Or not... )
Sounds cool to me.I like these figures alot.Looks like I'm going to have to join the damn Fanclub again tho to get mine.Something I really dont care to do again.
But it's not Shaq's fault that Rose is only 6-foot-7, and that his elbow is at the level of Rose's face. And, hey, when a big guy and a smaller guy collide, the big guy is the one who's going to be left standing. Is it fair to tag the big guy with a foul because he's bigger and stronger? Using the same logic, every time a small guy jets past a big guy, the refs should call the small guy for traveling."Great, so by the same token when Rose is posting up on Shaq, because Shaq's 'private parts' are at the same height as Rose's elbows, he should feel free to crank him in the crackers a couple of times? I thought the by-line said this guy used to be a coach, not a grade 5 student (with all due respect to more sensible grade 5 students)?

Now it seems to be a home team gets the calls sport. Sorry, Shaq great as he is, is kicking the crap out of some guy and not supposed to get called? Wrong sport, I believe you Yanks call the full contact sport football.
The NBA wants total control of its product. They want to control the media, the coaches and the players. But Shaq won't kow-tow to the league. He says whatever he wants to say, whenever and wherever he wants to say it. That's why the NBA, and the referees -- who, after all, work for the NBA and are its agents -- don't give Shaq the respect he deservesHi, I'm the author and I bleed yellow and purple. Duh. The problem is that the NBA has lost control of its product, simply by no longer enforcing the rules. It's pretty clear this was written prior to yesterday's games. I could write the same thing just substituting in Duncan's name to get a reversal that would read just as well given yesterday's officiating.
That's why Jackson is so intent on criticizing the way the games have been officiated. "And you know what?" the coach says. "Taking the refs to task in the media absolutely, positively gets results."
