The Long Beach Press Telegram’s Ross Siler, on the scene for the NBA’s All-Star Weekend, had a chance to bask in the wisdom of Miami’s Shaquille O’Neal.

Have you talked to Kobe since you got here? “No.”

Do you plan on talking to Kobe while you are here? “No.”

Why not? “I don’t know.”

What about old times? “No way. I don’t want to talk about old times.”

“I won’t say I don’t have any ill feelings,” O’Neal said. “I don’t have any feelings at all. I’m a married man, and I can’t really worry about what another man is thinking or what another man thinks about me. I’ve said that many times.”
