It’s funny how it’s so much easier to like Shaq now that he’s divorced from Kobe and out of LA. The reemergence of the “young shaq” via the (criminally underreported) block and coast-to-coast dunk a few days back just endeared him more.
Still, it’s hard to deny the sheer awesomeness of Big Ben’s all-ball rejection of the heretofore unstoppable Diesel just inches from the basket in last night’s game 5. It was the turning point in the game and I can’t seem to stop watching it. So wickedly timed, so pure.
Did I mention I’m from Michigan?
