Default Shaquille O'Neal Scores 41

Big game for O'Neal. Scoring 41 points against Seattle and having 11 rebounds. LA beat Seattle 111-104. Kobe Bryant had 19 in that game.

Wow just saw the highlights - West WATCH OUT! Not even 3 sonics combined could stop Shaq in the paint.

This was an excellent performance by the Shaq Attack!
The Sonics don't have the ability to stop Shaq, well, not many teams can. Plus, he did it with his bad toe.

I agree. He is up to what, 65% now? But he's been working on it, believe me. He just shoots flat shots and palms the ball with his huge hands. I think his big hands hurt his shooting as he tries to shoot them almost one-handed.

Oh wow... it'll be quite a long time before his percentage is good. At least it's over 50%.

Actually, in the last 35 games, Shaq has made 72% of his free throws.

People like to pick on Shaq's free throw shooting because they always want to find fault in people. Here is another fact. While Shaq overrall has struggled throughout his career percentage wise from the free throw line, he has over the course off the last 3 seasons made over 70% of his attempts in the 4th quarter. When the game is on the line, Shaq makes them.

Bottom line is this...............Shaq has 2 rings, that's all that matters!

I agree. He has two rings and that is the bottom line. If he makes just 30% of his free throws, but wins the World Championship-so what?

Exclamation Shaq's Crossover

I remember that game. How about Shaq's crossover dribble on Jerome James when Shaq was on the right baseline? :no way: You guys see that?

That was sweet! It should be a crime to be that big and athletic.

PatriotsMVP, BK commercials? The only Shaq commercials I've seen recently are the Nestle Crunch ones.
