Video: Watch Shaq’s farewell press conference

Leave a comment

It is possible, because you have a job or a life or some such nonsense, that you did not see Shaquille O’Neal’s farewell press conference on Friday.

So, we’re here to help out. We care about you that way.

Shaq was funny and just enjoying the experience, pretty much like he played his career. He admitted he could have gotten more out of his talents, but that was all tied together with his personality. Shaq is not obsessed like Jordan or Kobe, and that made him a perfect counterbalance to them. This is a game, we should have fun with it.

So have fun with the presser.

The Grizzlies lost for the 15th time in their last 16 games, a 25-point drubbing at home against the Heat, last night.

But it wasn’t all doom and gloom in Memphis.

This young fan – while playing in the halftime scrimmage – stopped his dribble, stepped on the ball, whipped off his youth jersey to reveal a Marc Gasol jersey, flexed, re-started his dribbled then drove for a basket.

The Grizzlies don’t deserve this hero.

DeMarcus Cousins pushes Trevor Ariza after whistle, gets technical foul (video)

For better or worse, DeMarcus Cousins is moody.

Just after getting dunked on by Clint Capela, Cousins showed his frustration by pushing Trevor Ariza after a whistle. The Pelicans center got his NBA-leading ninth technical foul – automatic suspension triggered at No. 16 – but I’m surprised this didn’t escalate beyond just that.
