Shaq Vs

Postby Pogotheostrich » Thu Aug 20, 2009 2:20 pm

I haven't seen it but a couple people at work said it was good. I'll tune in for the Pujols episode. Anyway thiis the reason I'm posting:

Shortly after O'Neal was traded to the Suns in February 2008, Nash mentioned to his new teammate a reality show he was pursuing. It would feature the Suns point guard taking on professional athletes in their own sport.

The topic didn't come up again until early in the 2008-09 season, when O'Neal boarded the Suns bus and told the team he would be starring in a new reality show in which he would be taking on, you got it, professional athletes in their own sport.

"You mean the idea you stole from me?" one Suns representative said he heard Nash say.

Nash eventually sought out an entertainment lawyer, according to sources, which is why he now has an executive-producer credit and the compensation that comes with it.

That's a very interesting story from a Business Law perspective. Without Copyright Protection, I don't see how Nash would have a case. To just verbalize an idea and have it stolen is not, in itself, illegal. In fact, it happens all the time. I think either A) Shaq gave him credit because he thought it was the right thing to do B) Shaq didn't feel like dealing with the negative press that would come about from Shaq V. Nash. I'm going to go with B, even though Shaq could have probably won the case.

I just watched the episode on Hulu. That first Shaq possession looked staged, all the defensive players stopped on the 5 yd line and let all Shaq's receivers behind them. Shaq could throw the ball a lot better than I imagined, and I loved how he caught that one reception.

That would instantly ruin it for me.

the show should be Shaq vs Nash. Steve would school him in everything except wrestling.

This is a pretty funny bit :-b with someone larger than Shaq face to face with him. (The Big Show comes in at the 3 minute mark):

As to Shaq's show, the ratings had it tanking big time.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
