Training camps open today and it's about damn time. Playground ball is cool and all, but we've been counting the days since the second the season
ended for the real thing to start.
It feels like Shaq and Shaq quotes have been dominating Smack lately with all of the trash talking with Kobe. Have some more. His quotes in the Miami
Herald yesterday had us laughing out loud.
"I told my wife the other day, I'm the Halle Berry of the NBA," said Shaq. "Everybody wants this, baby. Everybody wants me. You're firing Phil without
telling me. You're doing this and doing that. I'll tell you what, you can have this. I've been the scapegoat for too long."
Then on Phil being let go: "Phil took us to the finals three out of the five years and you want to fire him and want to bring in Mike Krzyzewski? Come
on, man. That's like being married to J-Lo, then dropping J-Lo for a girl that's 5-10, 480 (pounds). They asked me when I was out there, 'Why do you
want to be traded?' I said me staying here is like divorcing my wife and marrying someone who looks like me. That's backwards, man."
