I need this book in my life
“Big Baby” Davis kept looking me off and taking it himself. Doc is shouting at him to go inside, but he won’t. So Doc calls timeout and draws up a play for me. I go out there, and I back Andrew Bynum way under the rim. I’m loose, I’m ready. I’ve got Bynum under the basket and again, Baby won’t give me the ball. So I go up to him and say, “If you ever miss me again I’m going to punch you in the face.” I was hot.

Two nights later we’re playing in Sacramento and here we go again. I take three shots the entire game and again I’ve got my man isolated underneath the basket, and Baby ignores me and takes a jump shot. So the next time we’re in the huddle I let Baby have it.

I tell him, “Pass the [expletive] ball inside.” He comes back at me a little bit and now I’m really heated. All hell is breaking loose. We’re going back and forth. Doc is standing there and he’s not saying a word. The message is pretty clear: Work this out yourselves. I tell Baby, “You’re a selfish player. Everyone on this team knows it.” Hey, all the fans knew it. He takes shots when he shouldn’t.

That is not going to help Davis and his acceptance issues.

Then there is the story of why Doc Rivers never really loved Nate Robinson the way most fans did.

I wasn’t surprised at all when he got traded. Nate was always trying to get noticed by the public. He was always tweeting videos of himself punking his teammates … Some people are a little too focused on Twitter and Nate was one of them. He was too worried about how many followers he had. He kept saying, “Shaq, I need more people. Help me out.”

As much as he became a bitter nuisance toward the end of his career, this book is a must-read. Think of all the great players he played with and all the stories he should have ready. Shaq's book will sell.

This is what is wrong with American writing these days. More people sell crap gossip stories than actual works of literature.

Why can't people just have their five minutes and move on... no one gives a **** Shaq... and the people that do give a ****... GET A LIFE!

So pathetic.

Exactly. This is going to sell because everyone wants the inside "scoop." It will last for about a season and then Shaq will be on everyone's **** list for the rest of his media career. Maybe the Big Enquirer hasn't quite figured out yet that he's just become the guy that he hates the most: Jim Gray.

Right here, chieftain.

Don't really care if Shaquille calls him selfish, big baby is still a productive bench player, and one of the celtics few legitimate free agent options.

Ya... it is. Shaq is selling books by bad mouthing every guy he ever played with. Im sorry but if you have a beef with EVERYONE, that tells me the problem is you... not everyone else.

you don't think it is pathetic that every joe schmoe who ever has anything happen to them suddenly writes a crap book? Hell I just heard this morning Kim Kardashian is "writing a book" about her wedding and divorce.

That is what is wrong with this country. That is why our academic standards are becoming increasingly abysmal.

The average American hasn't even read a single piece of classical American literature... but hell... they line up to read garbage from such well respected authors as Snookie, Kim Kardashian, Shaquille O'Neal, etc.

I am currently a teacher... so this is touchy subject for me... but when kids today don't know the meaning of some simple English words but they can define swag and green... that is problem.

I have no problem with someone writing about a book about their experiences. Its true that this is the type of stuff people want to read and while it does say a lot about us as a society but I have to admit, this type of reading interests me. But I do have to say this speaks loudly as to the type of person Shaq truly is. He burned bridges at every singe team he has ever played for and now he is bad mouthing the teammates he had. People were always to quick to jump on his side so I just hope this book sheds some light as to who Shaq truly was and why he had drama everywhere he every played.

Shaq cracks me up. After complaining about Kobe snitching on cheating on his wife he goes and rights all this crap about everyone in the NBA. Two words come to mind when I heard this: SELL OUT. This guy has made $100s of millions of dollars and he has to put out this crap. I expect this out of Adam Morrison or someone like that but not Shaq. This guy has lost all credibility. He is funny though. Im just glad he never got lazy and fat...lol.

I'm a teacher too but I'm not as eager to blame Shaq's book for the downfall of American education. You can listen to Marilyn Manson's music, watch the Jersey Shore, and read Shaq's book and still survive. I'm not ready to give the media that much power.

Big Baby is selfish. He is a chucker. Everytime I watched their games he was taking ill-advised shots instead of moving the ball around and finding the open man.

The downfall of our system stems directly from the fact that the majority of these kids have dumbass idiots for parents. If youre raised right and taught values as a child, you can be exposed to anything and still think for yourself and make something productive of your life.
