      Shaq and Hedo Share a Moment

      SACRAMENTO -- It's not Isiah and Magic, but it's sweet nonetheless.

      Shaquille O'Neal and Hedo Turkoglu have hugged and touched both cheeks
      before the opening tip in every game of the Western Conference finals.

      "It's not a French thing," O'Neal said, laughing. "It's a Muslim thing."

      Turkoglu, from Turkey, and O'Neal share the Muslim faith, which they learned
      about each other during the past All-Star game in Philadelphia.

      "Muslims respect each other," Turkoglu said Tuesday night. "It's nice, you
      know. It didn't surprise me when he did it, because Muslin people support
      each other."

      Everybody else touches fists, or something similar.
