THE GRAND CANYON, Arizona - Shaquille O'Neal and several friends took some time off from their busy schedules to go rafting on the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon.
Afterwards he was asked by Hercules Confetti with Sporting Chance Magazine if he had read former Los Angeles Lakers teammate Kobe Bryant's comment about him in The Sports Balls Illustrated Daily.
O'Neal shook his head and said that he had. He then said that Kobe has a lot of problems and one of them is that the little skinny Gumby looking punk has a habit of letting his mouth write checks that his ass can't cash.
Bryant had stated in his interview with SBID's Rufus Reno that Shaq was one of the laziest players in the history of the Lakers team.
He stated that Shaq was so lazy he had younger players tie his shoe laces for him and one time he even had Luke Walton, son of the legendary NBA player Bill Walton hand feed him hot dogs during halftime.
Shaq told Confetti that he really did not want to spend his vacation time talking about the biggest ball hog in the history of the NBA.
He paused for a moment and added, "Let me just say this. The little arrogantly pompous brutha is damn friggin lucky his skinny little butt isn't sitting in a Colorado Prison as we speak."
WRITER'S NOTE: Whoa Nellie! Mr. O'Neal hit the 9-inch nail on the head and it would certainly behoove Kobe Bryant to just let it go at that. -HERCULES CONFETTI, Sporting Chance Magazine
