First of all there is a conspiracy in the NBA as David Stern was pushing Dwight Howard as the replacement for the already taken Superman nickname, which has belonged to Shaq for 15 years now. Anyone remember "Superman Emblem"? Shaq has it tattooed on his left bicep. Stern's jump for joy reaction to Dwight Howard's dunk seemed a bit pre-planned. Don't get me wrong, I have been a huge fan of Howard since he entered the NBA. He just needs to show respect to Shaq or pick a different Super hero to use as his creedo. By the way I've yet to see an interview from Shaq about this. Can you ever remember an All Star weekend going by without interviews and videos from Shaq? That's where my conspiracy theory comes into play. Part to of my notes from the Superman Dunk is the interview by Cheryl Miller with Howard and Gerald Green as they were waiting for the text messaging votes to be counted. Howard credited Soulja Boy's dance hit "Crank Dat" and it's "Superman dat ho" dance that stemmed from it as his inspiration. Now what if all the suits in the NBA and David Stern really knew what that song was all about? He would go from All Star night hero to the Michael Vick or Don Imus status in the NBA for disrespecting women. The Urban Dictionary's website defines the term as the following: "when you ejaculate on a girls back then put a blanket on her so when she stands up the blanket sticks therefore making her look like she has a cape." Good thing David Stern didn't know that, and it's a bad thing that Shaq wasn't involved in the festivities this weekend. I really missed him.
