Shaq got into a scrap with one of my teammates, … and I got tired of everybody separating them, so I went over and said, ‘Why don’t you guys stop [messing around] and just fight?’ Then he took a swing at me, and that’s how that started. The thing that led up to it was we were playing so bad, [coach] Brian Hill let each of us have it before practice. So everybody was on edge. It was a melee with a lot of punches landing. Shad had me by the neck, and I don’t know if he hit me, but my neck was sore for six weeks.
