Well, I've liked the guy, a jollier sort of NBA player who seemed to take criticism and adversity in stride more than others.  But the excerpts from Shaq Uncut that I heard this morning are irritating, not merely because he has done stupid things - those can be endearing - but because even upon reflection he thinks that a middle-school attitude of physical intimidation to get his way is something to be proud of.  He crows about intimidating Phil Jax at practice, not with superior understanding, but just being big.

Ha ha.  Guess you showed him. Jerk.

We've been so willing to love Shaq, but just the amount that Shaq has done over the years to negate that is remarkable. There's some real darkness to Shaq.
