The Arizona Republic reports today that when Shaq first joined the Suns, Steve Nash told him he was developing a reality tv show where Nash would compete against other professional athletes. At the start of the next bball season Shaq tells the team that he’s signed to do a reality show which is Nash’s EXACT idea. Nash was obviously upset, but being the cool cucumber he is, he hasn’t commented on it publicly. That doesn’t mean he let Shaq walk all over him. If you look at the credits of Shaq’s new show, you’ll see that he had to add another person to the list of producers. Who? Steve Nash.
The article implies this set a poor tone for the whole season and that this might be part of the reason Shaq was shipped out. It’s a good read, check it out.
