Personally, I'm done with the Kobe/Shaq feud, the Buss/Shaq feud, the Kobe/Malone feud and the rest of the Hatfields and McCoys. I'm sick of "As the Basketball Turns." But, apparently, some fans and the mainstream media are not.
ABC vice president Mark Mandel said the network is considering a Shaquille O'Neal-Kobe Bryant segment for halftime of the New England-Miami (Monday Night Football) game Dec. 20 to promote its Christmas Day telecast of the Miami Heat-Los Angeles Lakers game.
At one point I used to be excited about this game, now I'm seriously starting to dread the run up. It's going to get more hype than Santa that week. |||110264063929015742|||Are the Lakers More Primetime or Daytime?
