07:13 AM ET 06.17 | Most rookies suffer at least some indignity in professional sports, and Shaquille O'Neal isn't one to miss an opportunity for fun. [O'Neal] used to make Danny Green sing and dance in hazing when Green was Cavaliers rookie in 09-10: "He's a very creative guy," Green said. "I did sing a couple of songs. ... [But] it's a lot different when you're (a) rookie that's playing than a rookie that's not playing. They had a little fun with me because I wasn't playing much." Coby Karl, a Cavaliers guard for the first half of that season, also didn't play much. But Karl at least was a second-year man, so that spared him much of O'Neal's wrath. "Shaq would do a lot of fraternity-like stuff," Karl said. "He would make Danny stand up in front of the video and do a dance."

He has a thread only because he's drilling 3-pointers, but good for him.

Would it be nice if Green is the MVP? Spurs small ball beat the Heat's small ball. I guess Ghostown won't show up today because his Heat team lost. He will be in a very pissy mode...lol

Spurs have no choice but to shoot from outside. When they go inside and get hit the refs let it go..leading for fastbreak points for Heat. It was blatantly clear in games 4 and 2. In game 6 Miami will close the three point line, foul hard inside and get away with it which will lead to an easy win for them and for game 7 in Miami... you can trust Stern and Nike to make sure Miami wins...

Yes sir. Game 4 was the one that got away. Had they won that the odds would've been to solidly in their favor for the Heat to come back and win. However, since they let that one get away, won last night and now have to go back to Miami for a game 6 that they probably won't win, the Heat will repeat as champs since there is little to no chance the Spurs will win a game 7 in Miami.

I hate the Heat. Pat Riley deserves nothing.

No such luck. He'll be here cyber felating Lebron and the Heat. The only thing that will eliminate him from the FN equation is if the Heat lose the series. Which I am hoping very much they do.

Yuup, he usually shows up early when the Heat wins. His ego gets really big and he'll put down the Spurs as much as possible. Today he'll blame Spo for not letting Lebron show up last night. 8/22 is sad and be whined a lot.

Green has been a beast, that dude is a sniper from long range, what I don't get though is how the heat continue to overplay Parker or Duncan, but lead Green wide open!
It's mind boggling to me.
The dude was shooting as good as Allen all time in the finals, and wasn't missing, and you leave that guy open?
The guy has now passed Allen's record, the heat-peat are the heat's to lose.
These other guys (Chalmers,Miller,Battier,Cole) have to step up, and You flopping Boshtrich guy, you too!

What are you talking about?
It's clear to me they want Duncan to go out on top.
Can't you see that?

You can't be serious. The league is IN LOVE with Lebron James. He is their cash cow. They need another MJ type marketing guy and they want him to be it so badly they can taste it. Duncan is on his way out. There is no longevity in backing him. The NBA needs for the Heat to win.

Perhaps but it just appears to me they want Duncan on top, and am not even one to indulge in the mafia driven league or fixed persona....

I can agree with this somewhat. Duncan makes for a feel good story, (even though he can't honor his marriage vows).

I did however see the Spurs manhandle the Heat last night. The Green machine owned them...

You couldn't care less. If you could care less, it means you do care.

Just trying to help.

If you don't owe me anything, why do you feel compelled to go to such lengths explaining yourself?

He cares. Isn't it obvious?

why do you feel to quote comments where I wasn't even speaking to you?
Especially if it's not on point with the topic.
