Suns fans, I’ve got some bad news. Shaq doesn’t want you to be able to purchase cartoon Shaqtus merchandise anymore.

Wait, what’s that? You wouldn’t wear anything referring to or depicting Shaquille O’Neal ever again?

You use your old Shaq jersey to wash your car?

The entire experience has made you hate desert plants and any variation of the Nos. 3 and 2?

Seems a bit much, but I get your point.

Cleveland fans, what about you?

What’s a cactus?


Well I guess that settles it. Shaq’s lawsuit against Michael Calmese and True Fan Logo Inc. is two years late and fairly worthless.

O’Neal and his company Mine O’Mine, which according to the Courthouse News Service O’Neal is “president, secretary and treasurer” of, is suing Calmese for registering the domain and selling goods featuring an animated cactus that resembles O’Neal.

An O’Neal victory seems like a slam dunk (it’s an article about Shaq suing over a cartoon cactus, cheesy cliches are allowed).

The Shaqtus stuff should go great in that storage unit with all the Kazaam, Steel, Big Aristotle, Diesel, and Shaq Fu memorabilia.
