MIAMI (AP) _ Shaquille O'Neal will learn shortly whether he
earned a record 15th straight selection to the NBA's All-Star
He'd enjoy the recognition. He's not fixating on it, however.
The Miami Heat center said today that his sore left hip hasn't
improved since he was shut down from basketball-related activity
several days ago, and that he isn't sure if the planned two-week
break from playing will be enough time for the joint to heal.
