Scoring 13 points in the Suns' 128-96 victory over Washington last night, Shaquille O'Neal moved to #5 on the NBA's all-time scoring list (with 27,411 points), surpassing Moses Malone.

The #4 person on the list, Wilt Chamberlain, is still more than 4,000 points ahead of him, and given the fact that even in Shaq's highest-scoring season of 1999-2000 he "only" scored 2344 points-- and he's 36 years old now-- it's probable that Shaq won't surpass Wilt. (Kobe Bryant, on the other hand-- who's #18 all-time and #3 among active players with 23,500 points-- might ultimately do that, though).

Congrats to Shaq on the accomplishment; now if he can just quit trying to call attention to himself by trash-talking his old coaches we'll all be that much better off for the effort.

I keep hearing the same thing come up when talking about the MVP so far in the NBA. Jason Kidd is the MVP so far, but if the Wizards continue to do well then Michael Jordan should win the MVP.
