I got a great comment from Space at Me and Sports on my recent post about Shaq's rap.
Here it is:
Ahh... Alex it was just a freestyle. I assume you understand that freestyles are freestykes and nothing to be taken seriously. Everyone knows that Shaq has never been one of those arrogant players that feels he is above that game, but we do know that Shaq loves to have fun and poke fun of people. That is all it was there isn't a high road to poking fun, just one.
This comment made me think: why is everyone (including me) making a big deal of this? a) Shaq is always out there and this should be expected and b) while some want to talk about the Kobe insults, that will only make him want to win more. This will only propel the hype, the marketing, the desire of the best player in the game right now. I think it's only fair to admit your mistakes, I now agree with Space.
