More Crushing Disappointment for Cleveland

Postby Doctor X » Wed Aug 04, 2010 6:06 pm

No . . . we are not talking about Mike "Who is He Again?" Lowell hitting a two-run home run BEFORE the fans in the stands finished giving him a standing ovation.

Shaq may be leaving the Cavs to play for the Celtics.

P.S. No truth to the rumor that Danny Ainge is in talks with Kareem.

Because he did such a stellar job last season.

He could have his uses if he really wants to contribute and realizes he's a role player at best. Just using him for six crushing fouls per game is worth the veteran minimum and a roster spot.

You have to look no further than Wallace during last season with the Celtics. He was a role player, but he was not in a shape he should or could have been in. Shaq will not fare nearly as well.

This just in: Bill Walton is "questioning" his retirement.

I'm looking best case scenario. He shows up in shape, is a good presence in the locker room, doesn't bitch about playing time, and plays hard when needed. Shaq has always struck me as a good guy who could pull this all together if he really wanted to.

The Celts don't really need a lot of value to justify this deal. The key is whether he can handle the role. He wasn't a good fit in Cleveland, whether he fits better in Boston with the older Pierce and Garnett leading the way is another story. What we have found out about LBJ since then makes me wonder what that dynamic was really like...

My problem with Shaq was that during his last season with the Lakers he was not in good (let alone great) shape, as evident by him losing 30lbs after getting traded to Heat. No one had a good thing to say about Shaq and visa versa after each subsequent move.

Shaq was the best, and I am glad he played for the Lakers during his best years. but that was a decade ago. I do not think he has it in him anymore to play, he's just trying to get paid.

Of course if Perkins heals up nicely, they can just move Shaq all the way to the end of the bench and have a good second half of the season and playoffs.

Best of both worlds.

I think I would even root for the Fakers against LeBron.

But not the MFYs because, hey, I have standards.

I was rooting for Boston.

It was a once in a lifetime offer.

Having your lunch money taken by a bully is one thing. Walking up to the bully and saying "Nyaah nyaah!" is usually counterproductive.

The very thing that unites them will tear them apart. Egos act as unipolar magnetic fields. They might attract lesser objects, but like repels like. The Quest for the Ring will end up at the mercy of the Nibelung. But they'll lay their hands on a lot of Rhinegold and assorted maidens and not-so-maidens.

How about those Cavs. Not for nothing do we call them the Cadavaliers.
