I don’t know about you guys, but I think I’d pick Shaq to win that one. Just a hunch. But Rome wimped out. Apparently he didn’t want to be hospitalized by a seven-footer.
I can’t figure out how I feel about Jim Rome. I hated him for the whole “Chris Everett” thing. He talked a whole lot of crap, thinking that because they were on TV Jim Everett wouldn’t lay a finger on him. It bothers me when people talk a whole lot of noise just because they feel they’re protected. But you know what? On the other hand, I kind of respect his balls. The man is unafraid to voice his opinion, and to voice it straight to people’s faces. He’s not at all like Stephen A. Smith, who shits all over players when they aren’t there but then got his own show and did nothing but kiss ass. So I’m a little confused about Rome. Oh well, either way Shaq would have kicked his ass.
