Sports Illustrated is now able to curse athletes before it hits news stands.
The new Shaquille O’Neal cover is dated May 17; Shaq and the Cavaliers got bounced from the playoffs last night.
(Update: Turns out Sports Illustrated already pre-jinxed Shaq and LeBron last fall. So it could be the pre-jinx just kicking in late. Still, the comments there are priceless.)
