I think my allergies are acting up..... or I'm cutting up onions.....

Seriously, it's a tear jerker. Be sure to check it out. Has an interesting story about Kobe and Shaq too.

Absolutely. I remember reading that story some years ago and I really just marveled and gained so much for Brian in the way he's faced adversity and been strong about it. I think that inner warrior is what brought us back in game 7 against Portland. Shaw just refused to go down without a fight during that run in the late 3rd into the fourth quarter. Would have been interesting to see him get a shot at the Lakers HC job. At first I was really rooting for him, but then on second thought felt like Adelman would have been a perfect fit. Either way, I would have rather gone with either of them than Mike Brown.

Always loved Real Sports on HBO. It was a sad story. They've also done a piece on the Zen Master.

The tid bit about Kobe and Shaq was interesting too. I never miss an episode.

Shaw "Bryant called Shaq fat and out of shape, Shaq, 30 minutes before practice was waiting for him for a physical altercation. Shaq says, i don't know why you are here because you're not gonna stop what I'm gonna do to him." Shaw intercepts Bryant and warns him about Shaq being upset and ready to kick his arse. "And in typical Bryant fashion he says oooh I'm really scared." Shaw reiterates to Bryant "no, he's really pissed off"
Ultimately they agreed to come in and talk.
