ESPN News Story
Not sure if I like this or not... my first impression when I heard of this a few days back was WTF... shaq is old and will simply clog the lane on offense when Lebron drives to the hoop.
And there's no way shaq is going to step out to the three point line to stop Rashard Lewis / Turkalo from draining three balls.
The Eastern Conference finals loss came down to...
1) Perimeter defense: our small guards couldn't match up with Orlando.
2) No scoring support for Lebron: Mo Williams was out to lunch
Shaq is not the answer to either of these problems. If this deal goes through lets hope he loses 50 lbs and runs the court like he did in the old days.
My fear is this will slow the cavs offense down like it was a couple of years ago as the ball gets dumped to shaq to keep him happy and everyone else waits around for him to not dunk on someone.
I'm not clued into the free-agent market, but there's got to be better deals out there. Don't get me wrong, this is a great video game deal... but how many games will shaq actually play next season?
