    Default Great interview with Shaq (doctorate, LeBron, nicknames, etc)

    Solid gold.

    I'm not going to post the whole thing here... go read it.
    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!

    I don't know about ya'll, but I can't help but like the man. I wouldn't let him do my taxes, but we could knock back a few.

    That's awesome. The world, and the NBA, needs more Shaq's.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    Adding an apostrophe is not a valid way to make a noun into a plural.

    Ugh.

    So you're saying this is wrong:

    "The world, and PD, need fewer Anthem's."

    and this is right:

    "The world, and PD, need fewer Anthems."

    Okay, got it.

    See... I can learn from my mistakes.

    Yes, they do. They’re the generals. Generals don’t panic; then the troops never panic.
