YO IT'S SHAQ- I'M COMING BACK: Those of you hoping that Shaquille O'Neal will soon retire from the NBA will be disappointed, as it was mentioned in this week's Sports Illustrated that the Lakers superstar plans to play "many more" seasons, with the hope that he can win more championships than past Laker centers George Mikan, Wilt Chamberlain, and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (they each had five; Shaq has three). But the funniest quote in the story was from Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak who pointed out that "this year, more than any other, I really feel like Shaq has a renewed passion for the game." Gee, is that in spite of the fact that HE'S INJURED AND HASN'T PLAYED YET, or because of it?
