Diablo Lakers? LA Spawn?
May 8, 2000... Bill Krieger
Shaq crushes Diablo's Mommy
Well, Shaq didn't literally crush Manila Denise... hell, technically Manila beat Shaq 64 to 57, but you get the point. As previously conjectured in this very column, Diablo Danny showed his mother no mercy and smashed his maternal DogEater 162-64. So much for that whole teat thing... Diablo 1, Manila 0.
Well, what happened:
At this point, I think Diablo is more heavily favored than the "real" Lakers. Manila really should have drafted Luc Longley to complete the symmetry... Denise is Luc Longley to Danny's Shaq.
May 10. This Wednesday. It should all be over, appropriately, with the Laker's assumed rout of Phoenix in game 2. And yes Danny, you have to wait all the way till October to get your placque.
Oh well, at least a girl didn't win. Sigh.
