Shaq under scores what is wrong with the NBA today. Why the
NBA is now being compared to pro wrestling. We have been sold this lie for years
that Shaq is a Great basketball player, just like the WCW sells there guys like
Hulk Hogan , the Rock, Triple -H, etc. are Great Wrestlers. There are many
people out there that believe Both these lies are true.
About 12 years ago I'm sitting in a local pub (the Greene Leaf
Cafe ) with former Pro Basketball player Gary Brown. Brown who is Black begins
to Criticize Shaq's Game. I say hold on Gary, but Brown continues ," He can't
Shoot, He can't Handle the Ball, He has No Skills related to the Game. He is
Just All Hype." After a few minutes of listening to Gary I begin to understand
what he is saying.
In 1992 when Shaq came out of college it was Christian Laettner who was the
consensus College player of the year. Laettner was the Sporting News College
Player of the Year, The Naismith Award winner, The Wooden Award winner. When
Duke played LSU Laettner Destroyed Shaq and Duke blew LSU out. Duke went on and
won the National Championship and LSU was eliminated in the round of 16. When
the 92 Dream team was selected it was Laettner not Shaq that was the only
College player taken to represent our country. Laettner went on to become only
an above average Pro. Where Shaq has been called the most dominating low-post
player of our time.
