Shaquille O'Neal, who has taken to dubbing himself "The Big <Blank>"
over this season (e.g., "The Big Continuance," "The Big Aristotle") for
a variety of reasons, has now dubbed himself, in the wake of his NBA
Championship, "The Big Shakespeare."  In the AP article on the Lakers'
victory parade, O'Neal was quoted as citing Shakespeare, saying he
should be so named, since Shakespeare said "Some men are born
great,..."; Mr. O'Neal went on to tell the crowd what a great city they
represented and how great it was to win the title there.

Thought you'd like to know,
Hugh Davis
