Shaquille O'Neal put a gray stocking cap on his head and pulled a black leather jacket, the one with the Superman logo on the back, over his shoulders. Then he lowered a pair of headphones over his ears and waded through the locker room, to the bus, to an airplane that would take him home. He would not talk about the Lakers' 111-103 defeat Saturday night at the Delta Center against a Utah Jazz team that still had its legs long after the Lakers had lost theirs.
