"BIG"-yeah, right.

Shylock here. I have to say, if you haven't clicked on Kennedy's link to the video of Mr. O'Neal "freestyle rapping" about Kobe, it's a must see. Here's the facts-this year, Kobe Bryant was not only the MVP of the entire league, but he also lead his team to a conference championship in what was arguably the most competitive Western Conference in recent memory. The guy was solid all year (and for most of his career)-and is undoubtedly one of the most consistent players IN THE GAME. Okay, done.

Enter Shaquille O'Neal (or what's left of him). Shaq is completely washed up-he was part of a blockbuster trade this year that ended up being a glorified nothing, as he and the suns were knocked out in five games in the FIRST ROUND. He is getting old, all his critics were spot on about him this year, and lately, he hasn't had much to brag about except being overpaid. Top that off with the fact that he can't even rap. For crying out loud Shaq, put down the mic. In fact, it's probably time to take the rings and go home, big guy.

Shaq says this whole freestyle thing was in good fun, and that he and Kobe are on fine terms, but GIVE ME A BREAK. It's one thing to say one time in a freestyle, "Kobe, how my ass taste," it's something entirely different to say it over and over and get the entire crowd in on it. These dudes hate each other. And for what it's worth, if I'm Kobe Bryant (someday), I'm sitting on my couch watching all the ESPN reports on TV and laughing my ass off, because I've got a conference championship and an MVP award, and Shaq has been playing golf for about two months now.

Shaq is undoubtedly the "Mr. Mister" of the rap world.
While he is busy blowing his drums and banging his horns on the mic, Kobe is undoubtedly looking for six nickels under his shoe so he can give that girl back in Colorado thirty cents.

Who could this possibly be from? I'm pegging it at either JaWolk, R-Sog, or 300 lbs of Egyptian rage. I'm thinking it's the latter.
