"Kobe Bryant will have shoulder surgery today in New York, a decision made after consultations with four doctors and arrived at less than a week after he was diagnosed with a torn labrum."
Now change "Kobe" with "Shaq" and "shoulder" with "big toe"...uhmm feeling of "deja vu" no? Excepted that the outcome is slightly different.
first Kobe didn't wait a month before going to the doctor to ask for advice. Then Kobe didn't need 2 months to make a decision although 4 doctor had 4 different opinions. Finaly he didn't need 2 or 3 weeks to plan a date for the surgery.
I don't want to be sarcastic but if you bought the "Shaq need to have 3 months to make a decision because 4 doctors have 4 different opinions and he is affraid of choosing the wrong one" story then you should think about again. Ok ok I am not a doctor and both injuries can be different and more or less complicated. But two weeks vs more than 3 months...come on.
By the way, I look pretty pissed off with Shaq right now and yes I am! I don't want him to be trade or something but more and more I think his lack of work ethic will hurt us soon (well it has already happen
