By now you have surely seen Shaquille O'Neal's comments calling the Spurs "cowardly" for intentionally fouling him. If not, see Jeff McDonald's blog on the subject.

While nobody in these parts seems to have reacted with anything more than a chuckle, it's worth noting how his words were taken in the Valley of the Sun.

Forgive me, Mr. Supersized Saguaro, but please don't turn into a purveyor of fine whines and flambeed excuses. Your history as one of the NBA's more dominating and entertaining players doesn't mean it's OK to shoot from the hip but not from the line.

Now, seriously, we know the Big Bricklayer isn't going to make the Spurs pay by hitting free throws. If he could, he'd have done it in the playoffs.

And this from a writer who covers another Western Conference team:

John DeShazier, New Orleans Times-Picayune
Absent clothes, the emperor looks like a guy that can't make foul shots, but takes issue with opponents who have the audacity to challenge him to make foul shots. Especially under conditions other than the conditions the he considers fair.
