Weight behind his words
Angry O'Neal says Lakers' roster, not his conditioning, is team's problem
By Howard Beck
EL SEGUNDO -- Shaquille O'Neal has a vision for saving the Lakers dynasty. But it's not about offseason training, weight-loss programs or anything related to the state of his hulking frame.
All of that might be part of O'Neal's summer agenda -- and certainly is among the team's greatest concerns -- but O'Neal is more interested in seeing some heavy lifting by general manager Mitch Kupchak and coach Phil Jackson.
"I think the only training I need is players that know their role and players that will give me the (bleeping) ball. That's all I need," O'Neal said Friday, before a photo shoot at the team's training site.
Damn, Shaq's pretty pissed off bout the role players, Kupchack and Jackson, what do yall think?
