INDIANAPOLIS Shaquille O’Neal was feeling Grinched yesterday after the league fined him $35,000 for his critical comments on the officiating in the Celtics loss to the Magic in Orlando on Christmas. O’Neal fouled out in less than 13 minutes, and afterward the center referred to the referees when he said it’s “what happens when you have control freaks out there.”


Poor Semih Erden.  35K would probably feed his entire village back in Gaziosmanpaşa and Shaq is rolling around on the ground laughing about it. I just hope and pray that one day I can be fined 35K and just laugh it off as a big joke.  That would be the balls.   Instead I’m sweating dime bets like my fucking entire life depends on it.
