  • Basketball: O’Neal tweets of his...

    BOSTON (AP) — He was a prolific producer of rebounds and record albums. And nicknames, too, as if at 7-foot-1 and 350 pounds he was too big for the simple “Shaq” that made him an instantly recognizable, one-name star in all of his endeavors.
    Shaquille O’Neal had more than 28,000 points and almost 4 million Twitter followers. He appeared in six NBA finals, three times as the MVP.
    A 15-time All-Star, four-time champion and the 2000 NBA Most Valuable Player, the 39-year-old O’Neal announced his retirement on Twitter on Wednesday after spending most of his 19th season on the Boston Celtics bench, in street clothes because of leg injuries.

    Isotopes blasted by Redbirds

    In what’s quickly turning into a rough road trip, the Albuquerque Isotopes were roughed up by the Memphis Redbirds Wednesday.
    The Redbirds scored five runs in the first two innings, knocking around Isotopes starter John Ely early as they pounded the ‘Topes 11-1 in Memphis.
    The loss was the third straight and fifth in sixth games for the Isotopes (28-24), who suffered their most lopsided loss of the season. The Isotopes are 1-5 on the current road trip and still have six more away games before returning to Albuquerque June 9.
    Albuquerque’s lone run came in the fifth when Trent Oeltjen led off with a solo home run.

  • Basketball: James paces Heat as...

    MIAMI (AP) — Dwyane Wade’s night began with a hug for his mom. It ended with an embrace from LeBron James.
    Nearby, Chris Bosh held up three fingers.
    No explanation necessary. The Miami Heat are three wins from the reason why the Big Three came together in the first place.
    James scored 24 points for his first win in five NBA finals games, Wade scored 15 of his 22 points in the second half and the Heat beat the Dallas Mavericks 92-84 in Game 1 of the title series on Tuesday night — holding the Western Conference champions to their lowest point total of the playoffs after a dominant defensive showing down the stretch.
