    Default Season's first hack-a-shaq: 5 seconds in

    That's so awesome.

    For those that don't know, Shaq vowed that he was going to make people pay for using that strategy this year.

    Pheonix won, btw.
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    Thats hilarious. I guess Shaq got the last laugh though as the Suns won. He also played pretty well.

    Yeah, I saw this last night. Good stuff as Shaq seemed a little surprised at first and then had a big grin.

    It's also good to see Popovich dressed like Poopdeck Pappy for Halloween!

    Larry is not coming back, he didn't have a meeting with Orlando for not reason, yeah he is coming back to the NBA but not to the Pacers, the notion that he is a taking a year off and then come back is absurd.

    Love it. Wish Shaq would spend the offseason staying in shape instead of running his mouth.

    For those of us who can't see the vid, due to work restrtictions, can someone give a short summary of it?

    Basically, right after the ball is tipped off, Michael Finley runs over and hugs Shaq to draw the foul. Shaq looks over and Gregg Popovich is smiling and giving him two thumbs up. Shaq smiles back, etc.

    It starts at tip-off of the game, Suns get it.

    5 seconds into the game, Shaq is fouled off-ball. The announcers pick up on that and mention it's a "hack a Shaq" foul, but what they don't see before we do, is the camera on Gregg Poppovich. He's looking down at Shaq, grinning wide, holding both of his thumbs up in the air for several seconds.

    I enjoyed the look on Shaq's face before he saw Pop.

    I saw it on ESPN before I went to class.

    It actually went further. They did it the first 4 times down the court. I thought the best part is when Shaq put Parker on his butt for doing it.

    I didn't see that. Surprised they did that because that put them in the penlty awfully early - I wouldn't have been too happy as a Spurs fan.

    I must have missed the segway......they did it 4 times in a row, starting with 1:26 left in the first half, and it was Ime Udoka that he put on his backside.
