Hollinger wrote an extremely complimentary article about Battier on ESPN.com's free insider section. There are certainly some interesting quotes, especially the one where McGrady says:
"If Shane Battier is not on the All-Defense team, I'm protesting," McGrady said. "I'm boycotting the All-Defense team. Seriously, because this guy, he did a phenomenal job on the best scorer in our league. That's what he brings to us every night -- he guards the opponent's best player and he gives them hell."
Yep! Kobe did most of his talking to Shane's hand in that game against the Lakers.
