    Default Shaq Suspended For Tonight's Game

    WISH-TV just reported that Shaquille O'Neal has been suspended one game for his outburst yesterday.... Wow.
    Take me out to the black, tell 'em I ain't coming back. Burn the land and boil the sea, you can't take the sky from me.

    BOOM BABY!

    This game will be very interesting without the big men for both teams...

    I'm shocked.
    I was sure he would only recieve a fine.

    Perhaps is "I don't give a ****" comment after being told they were live got him the suspension.

    The funny thing is he apologized too.

    I wonder if he'll appeal, and be able to play tonight? He most CERTAINLY should be able to get that rescinded.

    This is the most ludicrous suspension in the history of the NBA. No doubt.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    The folks at Lakers Ground have heard it on talk radio also.
    I haven't seen a link yet.

    Don't see anything about this elsewhere yet. Would be very suprising if he was. Good news for us though if so. No excuse to lose even without JO.

    There is something I guess.

    WOW! Shaq just became an example. I agree - must've been the follow-up line. Lots of folks, including coaches, have "slipped up" in press conferences.

    Lots of coaches have been suspended for openly criticizing officials, and with lots gentler language.

    I'm not saying it's entirely justified, just that it wouldn't be surprising, at least to me.

    That just made my day.

    Of course, this still doesn't guaruntee a win, but still.

    This game was never going to be a test of the best teams as soon as Malone was hurt beyond this game, and Kobe was out.

    Then JO and Shaq drop out for different reasons.

    Now all it means to me is a way to get a season-series tie with them. You never know, it could mean the difference between home court or not in the Finals (if we get there).

    Yeah, this game should still be a good one because both teams will be really up for it.

    I would rather play a pissed Lakers team without Shaq, then a happy Laker team with Shaq

    Just to make sure you don't know more then I do, JO is said to be "doubtfull"
    this does not mean it is sure he is not playing, knowing JO there are 2 games, today and tomorrow, that are important to the P's AND to HIM.

    I would be surprised if he was not suited up at game time.

    Also, "normally" the league releases suspensions statements around 1 hour before gametime, earliest I hav enoticed this year was 5 PM EST and as far as I know it's not that time yet



    This does however not mean I'm not hoping with ya ;p
    besides that, I think he deserves it, people have definitely been suspended for less.

    Shaq should appeal it that will give the NBA a couple of days to think about it then if they still decide on suspending him he can just sit out Thursdays game. I'm just being objective I don't even know who they play Thursday night, honestly I don't.

    still no links that I can find- espn, nba.com, realgm etc, should have something on this by now if true.

    This Thomas is becoming a doubter.

    dipperdunk - I LOVE that Barkley quote on Cassell-- I missed that one, I guess.

    "Now that Sam Cassell is done with his role in Lord Of The Rings he can get back to being an all-star caliber player." - Charles Barkley
