Shaq Overrated
The folks over at are finally starting to realize the truth about Shaq -- that he's lazy and not as good as everyone thinks. That's not to say he isn't good or even great, but just that he's not as good as he could/should be. For as big and as strong as he is, he ought to be pulling down 20 boards a night, but he barely gets half that. Rebounding is all about hustle and desire -- witness Garnett and Ben Wallace. Wallace is a perfect example of a guy who has become a great player purely by the force of his will: he wants that rebound more than you do. Shaq's rebounding numbers indicate to me that he simply doesn't put out the effort. A body that big and strong should have more boards than he gets -- and I say it's because he's lazy.
