Shaq playing for the Celtics.

One of my buddies told me that Shaq was playing for the Celtics this year. I told him that Shaq is playing for the Celtics, but that that Shaq isn’t Shaq. Shaquille is playing for the Celtics now. Shaq lost his nick name when he lost his stuff. A basketball nickname is like a mortgage on a house, if you stop paying for it, they take it away.
If I was Shaquille, I would be insulted if in the last year anyone referred to me as Shaq. Because currently Shaq is a basketball legacy and anytime anyone refers to Shaquille’s current performance as Shaq they are destroying his legacy.
