Shaquille and Phil Jackson are headed for a possible smackdown, Eric Lindros keeps his head up against his old Philly teammates and Roots shows off their stylin' new Olympic colors.
Shaquille O'Neal and his coach, Phil Jackson, could be headed for a serious smackdown. The Lakers are 7 - 0 and Shaq is the NBA leading scorer but for some reason coach Jackson still isn't happy. Phil says he's concerned about Shaq's brutal free-throw shooting. Shaq says he's tired of being criticized - especially since he's won two championships and two MVP awards. Get ready to rumble... the Shaq Attack and P-Jack could be stepping into the ring soon.
Things couldn't have gone much better for Eric Lindros in his first game against his old team, the Philadelphia Flyers. Eric scored a goal, his Rangers won the game 4 - 2, and most importantly, he kept his head up and didn't get smoked by any angry ex-teammates.
Roots showed off the new uniforms they designed for the Canadian and and US Olympic teams. The Canadian threads are red and white with old-school lettering and a vintage maple leaf. The US uniforms are red, white and Salt Lake City Blue (a brighter blue.) You can check out the new duds by going to www.roots.ca.
