I respect a good verbal bitch slap...

And there's not much else you can label Shaq calling Chris Bosh "the RuPaul of big men," other than a serious verbal bitch slap.

It's been a "trying" season for Bosh. It's not about to get any easier. Big Shaq just sent CB4 to the mat.

Like, how does one respond to that? Bosh has no choice but to take it. Shaq's on Twitter. You don't mess with The_Real_Shaq.

Speaking of getting messed with, to the surprise of absolutely no one, the Raptors lost to the Dallas Mavericks last night. Bosh had 28-and-10, but, like on so many nights, it wasn't enough.

The Raptors, at 23-38, are brutal. Period.

Sure, they're only five and a half games out of a playoff spot, but it's not happening. I may be a glass half full type of guy when it comes to the Toronto Maple Leafs (playoffs!!1), but the glass is bone dry when it comes to the Craptors. They are difficult to listen to on the radio (I've got a "basic" Rogers cable package - it's brutal).

I can't wait until the season is over, and the Raptors are put out of their misery. It will then be time for Bryan Colangelo to earn his keep.

Will Bosh leave in 2010? The way I feel right now, I don't think I'd lose much sleep over it.

"The RuPaul of big men." That's rough.

Bosh is on twitter:

You know, RuPaul is tremendous and I have no idea how that possibly could be an insult because one, not only is Ru dazzling as a woman, she is also just as dashing and perfectly pulled together as a man. So I think Rodman circa the Carmen Electra years is more of an insult. But that is just me.

Basketball on the radio is tough to listen to no matter who's playing. I don't love Paul Jones's work either....

RuPaul of big men...classic Shaq.

To me that was a low blow but it was still funny.

Dave: I know Bosh is all a-Twitter these days, much like the rest of the world, but Shaq dominates Twitter. Like he dominates the low post against the Raptors (he was 20 of 25 the other night, with all the points coming in the paint).

Wrap: RuPaul is a man. Who chooses to dress and act like a woman. There's your insult. That's bad. And I fear that Bosh will never be able to shed it.

Lloyd: I hate Paul Jones and, fuck, I don't even know the other guy's name. They're brutal. I look forward to Raps basketball on Sunday on CBC, because that's the only time I don't have to listen to those two.

OnTheFence: I thought it was hilarious. It was Shaq being Shaq. That's why, all in all, I just feel bad for Bosh. This season just keeps getting worse for him.

Chris Bosh sucks! Period. See, I've told you all along he is a whiner and Shaq just backed my story up. Trade his whining ass. There's no room for RuPaul-type players on this team. CHRIS BOSH SUCKKKKKKKS! Okay bye!

Shaq's been stealing money for about 3 years now.
