Will Cuban Say "Blog This!" to David Stern or Will Shaq Get a Ring for his Middle Finger?Recently I mused about the possibility of David Stern presenting the championship trophy to Mark Cuban. AP Sports Columnist Tim Dahlberg just wrote about the same subject. If Dallas wins, it certainly will make for an interesting entry at Mark Cuban's blog.
Orlando Sentinel writer Brian Schmitz, noting Shaquille O'Neal's penchant for giving himself nicknames, says that Shaq might call himself The Big I Told You So if the Miami Heat win the title. Usually when players get their fifth title it is called "one for the thumb." This would be Shaq's fourth championship and I wouldn't be surprised if he called it "one for the middle finger." There is no doubt that he would love to flash that digit at Kobe Bryant, the L.A. Lakers' management and anyone else who he feels has disrespected him.
So, whoever wins this year's Finals, someone will be saying--or thinking--"vengeance is sweet."
