Monster Game for @THE_REAL_SHAQ

With Steve Nash on the bench nursing a sprained ankle and Amare Stoudemire out for the season with an eye injury, Shaquille O'Neal has been playing inspired basketball - the old man against youngsters.  It was great to see him lead the Suns to victory over the Lakers today.

Do you want to be entertained between games by Shaq in a hip, social media sort of way?  Follow @THE_REAL_SHAQ (yes, it really is Shaq) on Twitter.  He's quite a character off the court as well.

140x3! A Lesson in Optimism

After yesterday's heartbreaking news about Amare Stoudemire's eye surgery, my pessimistic vibes cast a dark shadow over the rest of the Phoenix Sun's season.  It's good thing the Suns believed in themselves more than all us doubtful folk.  Last night, Leandro Barbosa poured in a career-high 41 points and Jason Richardson added 34 to lead the Suns to their third straight game of scoring at least 140 points!

Go Suns!

Can't Win for Losin'

Wednesday night I watched Amare Stoudemire score 42 points as the Suns scored 140 and 141 on successive nights against the hapless Clippers.  It seemed that the Suns might have a chance to climb back into the playoff picture after all, as they returned to their trademark uptempo style after changing coaches.

I was pleased that the Suns decided to keep Amare rather than trading him.  Then we learned today that he underwent surgery this morning for a partially detached retina, and will be unable to resume physical activity for about 8 weeks.  Arrgggh!

We do wish Amare a full recovery and will be interested so see what the Suns can do without him for the rest of the season.

Jason McElway, Autistic Basketball Hero

This video has apparently been around for awhile, but I saw it first today on my son's Facebook page.  It is the coolest sports story I've seen in a long, long time.
