... and by "big" I mean "utterly overrated player in the first stages of severe decline, who the Bulls will regret signing no later than October 2007, but who the media hyped as being the greatest acquisition in league history even though he can't shoot and can't guard any modern NBA centers who can play from more than six feet out. But hey, two blocks per game. Those four points are worth the ten your team loses by playing him at center, right?"
In the next year or two we're going to watch Darko have his way with Ben Wallace on more than one occasion, which is going to amuse me. I can't stand Wallace.

He looked, if not exactly svelte, clearly shy of house status struggling far more during Tuesday's workout with the grip on those slippery new basketballs than with his conditioning.
O'Neal told me he's the same weight now that he was when last season ended, which means he's in the 325-pound range. If you're not prepared to buy that -- especially since Shaq admitted that "I didn't do anything" when asked about his offseason fitness regimen -- you can still safely endorse Shaq's subsequent assessment that "I'm right where I want to be." This early in the season, Riley has to be encouraged.

Yeah right. I hate Ben Wallace more than any other player in the league.
