No Justice Without Sin

Shaquille O’Neal a la Frank Miller.

Shaq has been through the storm. From feuds with Kobe to a spat with Stan Van Gundy, he’s had his share of beef, but that hasn’t stopped him from winning nearly a hand’s worth of championship rings. Now, as he takes his game to Cleveland, he hopes to help start a different kind of reign—this one on behalf of King James.—Adam Fleischer

    didn’t both the Heat and the Mavs got bounced in the first round this year? (it was the GS upset over Mavs right?)

    Not only a beef with Kobe, but also, most of the 4 and 5 pos. in the league, D Wade, Van Gundy, Pat Riley. Great player. Terrible attitude when he leaves teams!!

    Yes chingy, I think you’re correct. And after that happened, everyone started flaming Slam.

  • Fleezy

    how long till he throws Mike Brown under the bus?

    Curse of the Slam Cover x 2. Still loved these covers, Dirk’s was cool as well.
    Two of my favorite Slam covers, right up there with Mike’s face in blk/wht. and Dwight flying through the cover.

    The Sin City covers were great, really great, and original. Awesome.

    I remember this one.I still have this mag somewhere hidden.

    Cleveland’s going to need him to Shaqtivate some super powers.

    haha Blinguo.
    @ Fleezy: I hope he throws Mike Brown under the bus and backs up to make sure the dumbass is as dead as his offensive “plays”.

    ^ You wish to kill Grimace the way McD’s did this generation? Barney, the OG purple people eater was probably behind it.

    I remember a subscriber in trash talk complaining about the fact that he lives in Miami but received the Dirk issue. That cracked me up. Definitely not-funny funny.

    Mike Brown is NOT, I repeat is NOT a good coach, he coaches a team with talent, a la Doc Rivers. You have good coaches, good teams with a coach, and then the freak occurrences of good coaches with a good team (PJ and Bulls). You got that one right Fleezy.
