As if Chris Bosh didn't have enough to worrry about, he awoke yesterday to the news that Shaquille O'Neal, the self-anointed Big Aristotle, took aim at the Raptors forward.

Following Friday's loss in Phoenix, Bosh told reporters O'Neal benefited from the officials, whom Bosh felt ignored many three-second violations.

"I heard what Chris Bosh said and that's strong words coming from the RuPaul of big men," O'Neal told the Arizona Republic.

"I'm going to do the same thing (when O'Neal next plays Bosh) I did before -- make him quit. Make 'em quit and complain. It's what I do."

HE'S A CLOWN

Bosh's Raptors teammate Jason Kapono played with Shaq in Miami and is well aware of the Diesel's mischievous ways.

"Hey, Shaq's a clown," Kapono said. "He has said a lot of outlandish things.

"I spent two years with him and he's a very creative person."
