    Big Ben is still the man no matter what team he's on. He's still a Piston at heart.

    I bought some Starbury's and they fell apart after one month...I don't think the big show companies have anything to worry about.

    You didn't go out and try to play basketball with those shoes, did you? Lots of things will fall apart if not used properly.

    If you read the fine print, the shoe has a two inch vertical minimum for maximum shoe life. This is due to the 'hang time' factor that allows the material to expand to it normal size after being compressed.


    I got some Starburys. I thought they were comfortable but the sole material wore out fast but I probably exceeded the max weight tolerance on them.

    The other thing is that its a narrow sole.

    Shaq trying on his new watch

    I don't know how much the Shaq watch will cost but this watch from Audemars Piguet you can pick up for a cool $121,302 on the Amazon website.

    In any case I think that the Shaq watch will cost a bit more than Big Ben's new line of sneakers.
