Shaquille O'Neal calls Chris Bosh 'the RuPaul of big men'

vma-1993-rupaul.jpgNever one to give an uninteresting quote, Phoenix Suns center Shaquille O'Neal likened the Toronto Raptors' Chris Bosh to America's most famous drag queen.

In responding to comments that Shaq had benefited from the officials not calling three seconds on him, O'Neal had this to say:

"I heard what Chris Bosh said, and that's strong words coming from the RuPaul of big men," O'Neal said. "I'm going to do the same thing (in their next meeting) I did before - make him quit. Make 'em quit and complain. It's what I do."
See, a comment like this can be taken a couple of ways. I'm sure O'Neal was implying that Bosh was soft and effeminate, but -- according to Wikipedia -- Hunter S. Thompson once described RuPaul as "unshakable and magnanimous."

So, there's that.

The Shaqtus strikes again! Is there any more enjoyable sports personality?

Does that make the legendary--just ask him--Joakim the Roseanne Rosannadanna of Chicago?

Shaq is by far the most comedic sports player in the leauge and is still a force to be reakon with on the court. As for chris he should be quiet and play more consistent in the post instead of missing jumpshots and commenting on one of the most dominant players of the century.

I think Dwight Howard looks a lot more like Rupaal than Bosh does.
