Shaq wants to make Shaq-Fu 2

One of the greatest (read: worst) video games ever made was the Super Nintendo classic Shaq-Fu. The plot of the game involved Shaquille O'Neal, a dojo and several levels of hilarity. It was universally panned and is considered one of the worst video games ever made. It also had the added negative effect of keeping O'Neal out of NBA Jam, an unforgiveable crime to Magic...

Chicago Bulls defense still living up to lofty standards

Under Tom Thibodeau, the Chicago Bulls play tough, hard-nosed defense. It’s what they do. Just like under Scott Skiles. As for the Vinny Del Negro years in between, well not so much.

Bucks far from satisfied with way their season ended

ST. FRANCIS, Wis. -- As the Milwaukee Bucks slowly but steadily arrived at the Cousins Center on Monday for exit interviews with general manager John Hammond, the mood was certainly not one of a team that had just accomplished one of its major goals for the 2012-13 season. Sure, the Bucks made the playoffs, an experience that can only benefit players down the road, but the feeling...

In a somewhat-surprising move, the Milwaukee Bucks and head coach Scott Skiles decided to “part ways” late Monday night. While Skiles and GM John Hammond both denied a Yahoo! report alleging that the coach of four-plus years “hated his team,” clearly some tension had been building between the two sides for quite some time. It was widely assumed that the starting backcourt...
