The Final Horne: In the end Kobe won the war with Shaq

 

Clarksville, TN – I was on Shaquille Rashaun O’Neal’s side during the epic and legendary Shaq-Kobe Bryant Wars that were waged earlier this century. The pair formed the greatest duo the NBA had had seen since Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen were leading the Bulls to six championships in subsequent three-peats in the early and then late 1990’s or certainly since Hulk Hogan and the ‘Macho Man’ Randy Savage formed the then WWF’s famed ‘Mega Powers’ tag team in the late 1980’s.

Being apart of Shaq’s Army was cool. And why wouldn’t it be when you’ve got a 7-foot-1, 325-pound general leading the way. No one doubts Shaq is the most dominate center of our time and is hard to argue that he may be the greatest center to ever play the position. «Read the rest of this article»

The Final Horne: Govs better with Fraley, Tebow vs. Brady, NBA is back, NFL picks and what’s going on this weekend in sports

 

Clarksville Sports NetworkCaught some of Austin Peay State University’s men’s basketball practice Thursday and they were really working hard. They are just a different and much better team with John Fraley back at center. He just makes everything go and allows Will Triggs and Melvin Baker to play their natural positions. Fraley doesn’t need to score that many points, but his rebounding and presence in the middle makes a huge difference.

The Govs have made some other moves by starting freshman Herdie Lawrence and moving TyShwan Edmondson to the bench and having him as the sixth man. But even then, everything just flows much better because Fraley is there.
