    The NTSB called, they want to make sure Shanes forehead wasn't anywhere near Australia at the time of the planes disappearance.

    Shane is an awesome person on and off the court. This Grad wishes we had 1 or 2 guys to go UNC like the ones Duke produces. Im tired of cheaters, thuugss, and women beaters representing our starting line-up in basketball.....sad.

    So now his forehead can no longer ward off the defenders, but causes fouls. And his game is trash. Maybe he can get a sales job with Christy LateNon.

    His forehead would be the ONLY thing that could hurt somebody.....his game sure doesn't.

    Tonight:
    7 minutes off the bench, zeros across the board. (Except for 2 fouls.)

    Meanwhile, Flagship U. legend Danny Green had 9 points and 3 rebounds in the curbstomping.

    Hopefully they put the bench back some so his forehead doesn't reach out and trip somebody.

    McCants had more A's in college than number of classes attended and papers written combined...

    Wonder if any other player in NBA history actually has more championship rings than minutes played in Finals games?

    Towel boy. Battier, G Hill, J Williams, J Bilas, do you see where I am going with this? Duke has dozens of players that are a cut above. Hope it makes you feel better. Rasheed, McCants, Maktar. Those dudes simply arent Duke material. K equals Dean + Huck

    His forehead would get in the way.

    Not to worry, Shane can't hurt you anymore. That is, unless he does become a lawmaker and votes to take away your free phones. Oops

    It would be super-hilarious watching all you rightwing dookie trolls tripping over yourselves to try and simultaneously worship him (like you do now) and despise him (for being a "demmy-crat") lololol

    He should keep doing Bud Light TV ads and leave politics to actual politicians.

    http://www.cbssports.com/nba/eye-on-basketball/24574718/shane-battier-rejected-request-to-make-senate-bidShane Battier told Grantland.com that the Michigan Democratic Party reached out to him for a potential Senate bid, which he declined.

    Battier is nearing retirement now, and he can no longer shoot, dribble, or defend like he once did. The Michigan Democratic Party recently called him to see if he might consider running to replace U.S. Senator Carl Levin, Battier said. He declined, but he's closer to retirement than he is to the player who helped Miami unlock its identity. He has enjoyed the rivalry, which has produced an intensity so serious that Battier said he has never discussed it even in quiet moments with any of Indiana's players. β€œNo, no, no,” he said. β€œThe way the games have gone, that just wouldn't be a possibility.”
