You should wait until you hear Shaq's explaination before you start knocking him for it.

I hope it wasn't something stupid, and that he did have a good reason to miss the funeral.

Jerry West and Magic spoke, and Rick Fox gave a very emotional speech about how Chick really helped him in his career.

Kobe spoke to reporters about Chick afterwards, but I'm not sure if he spoke in the funeral.

Phil Jackson was there too. I think all the other Lakers were there too, except Shaq, but I'm not sure.

Jerry Buss also didn't come. I don't know why though.

Other than him being there for the birth of his child, or a death in his own family; name something important enough to miss Chick's funeral. Name one thing....

There isn't, but you never know...we should wait until we hear his story before we start blaming him.

He had plenty of time to fly back for the funeral between the time Chick's death was announced and the time of the funeral....

some people dont feel comfortable at funerals, they would rather remember someone as they were when they were alive, instead of touched up with makeup like a manican with their lips and eyelids sewed shut

That is true, but if someone dies that was like a family member, you go to the funeral. You forget about your immediate needs and what would make you comfortable. I think Shaq did a disrespectful thing, personally....

I would go a funeral but I wouldn't go look at the body. Its just something really eerie(sp?) about that.

Man forget Shaq! Jerry frickin Buss didn't even show up! Chick was the Lakers and I think it's sad that Buss was a complete no show.:upset:

From the sounds of it, Mr. Buss was in Europe. For all we know, maybe he was in the Alps and unreachable.

Shaq was in Florida and could have made the trip, as Pat Riley did. BUT, maybe Shaq had a good reason....after all, it is his business and he knows why he didn't attend!

Maybe Shaq wasn't as close to Chick as some of the other Lakers or fans-and as JOHNNY_BRAVisimO said-not everyone is comfortable at funerals-you don't know his reason, so dont bash him.

KC,

Why do you care?- you always bash the Lakers. Maybe Shaq had a good explanation....
