          As Nike has the Lakers uniform designation this year,
     Shaquille O'Neal "taped over the swoosh on his shooting
     shirt, a practice he intends to continue all season,"
     according to an AP report in the HARTFORD COURANT.  O'Neal,
     who endorsers Reebok: "I'm not going to sit here and fight
     with the league. ... Nike doesn't pay me to wear the swoosh. 
     I'm loyal to my other companies" (HARTFORD COURANT, 10/12).
