Lakers Dynasty 2000 wrote:SHAQ's LATEST COMMENTS ON YAO

"He's a good player, but at 7-7, he's just doing what he's supposed to do," O'Neal said. "So, it's not that I'm going to say I'm not impressed, but at 7-7 you're supposed to shoot over whoever's sticking you. He's a long, long drink of water. I probably won't help out [on the defensive end] as much. I'll probably lean on him a little more, get him tired. And hopefully in the fourth quarter I'll have a little more than he will."
Asked if he might get some help from Karl Malone, O'Neal appeared to have been poked in the neck by a cattle prod.

"No," he said. "I'm just going to try to stay in front of him. If he scores, he scores. Hopefully, I can get the opportunity to go back at him. Whenever you're playing somebody that's a scorer, you have to make them work on both ends. So, if those guys are coming down shooting and not playing defense, then he's probably going to have a big night.

"But I guarantee he won't stick me one-on-one. I guarantee you that. They have to double- and triple- and do that. We play him straight up.... I think I can affect his shot most of the time."

it's like he trying to give some credit to yao but instead saying "but at 7-7, he's just doing what he's supposed to do"...same works w. shaq, at 7-1 340lbs he's just doing what he's supposed to do, god for once just bite your tongue shaq and give a guy some true credit


nice comments by Shaq about Yao, obviously that Shaq-Yao matchup is highly anticipated, and I would expect BOTH Shaq and Yao to analyze each of their personal matchups...but I wouldn't get far too carried away with that, remember, Houston's perimeter shooters have been killing us lately. However, Francis and Mobley are both in their mini-slumps, and with our motivation to get win "10", and the fact that our D has been getting better, may just get us motivated for this one. For some reason Laker-Rockets matchups are more ever heated up than before.

I wouldn't just worry about Yao--I think that if Shaq can hold down Yao's passing ability we would be way better off--and we have got to fight through those screens to get a hand at those perimeter shooters--like Maurice Taylor. Mo has been killing us whenever he plays against us, and most of the time he gets open shots off penetrations and passes from Yao. We've got to make Yao GO to Shaq rather and then the case will be solved--fend off their perimeter players rather. I want to see what Yao can do--obviously he won't get very far with Shaq manning the paint.

I think Shaq may be taking the wrong approach on this one--he should seriously defend, make Yao intimidated, make the man pass--and we should be ready. Don't forget, we have that hassling Malone. Hopefully everyone's ready for this game tonight. :jam2:

Malone is doing a great job or drawing fouls. He already has drawn one from Yao and Taylor

And how about that reverse layup by Shaq, that was a thing of beauty
