Want to hear the Shaq news cycle in a nutshell? With one minute of each other, two respected reporters had the following conflicting tweets:
Gary Washburn: “Shaq was getting stretched when we were allowed into shootaround and then walked into locker room. No limp.”
Chris Forsberg: “Shaq still with a very noticeable limp as he left court. Was using strength coach Bryan Doo to do push-ups before leaving.”
One second Shaq’s out for the season, the next he’s present at shootaround. Classic. Though Doc Rivers said Shaq is still doubtful for Game 4 (which I assume means he’s still out for tonight), he reportedly moved better today than he had been moving. Whatever that means.
In other news, Jermaine O’Neal will continue to play with a brace on his wrist. Perhaps he should also play while wrapped inside bubble wrap and packaging peanuts.
