Cheering For The Villain

99 times out of 100, I would have cheered for the Orlando Magic against the Lakers in the NBA Finals. 99 times out of 100, I would hope Kobe Bryant falls on his face.
This is that 1 time out of 100 that I am not.
Blame a former Magic.
In fact, blame a former Laker.
Blame Shaq.
Like most people, I was fooled into thinking what the media was selling us about the Shaq/Kobe divorce. But, last year, when Shaq did his "tell me how my <bleep> tastes" rap, I saw the truth. That Shaq is bitter and jealous and it was he, and not Kobe, who was the reason for the dissension between the two. Everyone else has moved on.
I know. There are some of you out there who will say that Shaq is just fun-loving and just playing around. No. That was Shaq at his tastless, childish best, proving once and for all that Kobe has more maturity and more class than Shaq.
If the NBA Finals are to end with the Lakers on top, you will see that when Kobe does not in any way reply to Shaq's rap, no matter how much he would like to.
I do wonder if the Lakers win, will Shaq tell us how Kobe's <bleep> tastes?
