Not that I'm making a big deal out of it, but this is the first I've heard.

His first name is his birth name, and he hasn't done the standard full name change, so does anyone know??

I think it's just a name. I know that during Ramadan, the press would always make a big deal about HAkeem Olajuwon fasting and not drinking water before sundown during games. I've been in L.A. for 2 years and have never heard Of Shaq doing that.

Yeah, I think that articles is either just in error, or propaganda. But I don't buy it.
