Every rare now and then, Shaquille O'Neal actually makes sense. From a Miami Herald article talking about his new real estate company:
''People sometimes ask me who is my favorite athlete. They expect me to say Chamberlain, Russell, Kareem,'' said O'Neal, ticking off the names of former basketball greats. ``But I say Dave Bing, because he did great things after basketball.''
Bing, a prolific scoring guard now enshrined in basketball's Hall of Fame, runs a multimillion-dollar steel business in Detroit and is a civic leader there.
