Default O'Neal Apologizes after Tirade

He lost his temper plain and simple. Really no big deal except if a child heard him.

Sjaq doesn't mean his apoplgy. He's probably laughing at the fact right now "Hehe, Cool, I said the F word on TV."

I heard he got suspended for the game against Indiana tonight because of this.

Yeah, I don't think Shaq means any of his apologies.

yeah I doubt he means the apology; probably it was 'highly recommended' by his advisors.
and personally I'm glad he spoke his mind. I think it's high time more and more people spoke out against the Refs.
At the very least, the NBA should incorporate what the NFL has: the ability to challenge a call and review the tape.
We've all seen some horrendous officiating, but it goes our way some of the time so we don't complain too loud. But I for one would like to see a completely fair game; let the chips fall where they may.

Is there a rule called travelling in the NBA? That bothers me so much that it is never called.

Not sure what Lee's post has to do with the "tirade," but at least we can see Shaq is back as his normal intimidating, dominating attitude after being injured. He lost close to $300K ... in one game?! That's insane he makes that much.
