WHO said WHAT????
 
Came across this story about comments made by Shaquille ONeal regarding the Blazers.........had to stop and reread it a couple of times:

Suns center Shaquille O'Neal has befriended Blazers guard Brandon Roy, and likes what he sees in Portland.

"The good thing about this team (Portland) is they can grow together and it's possible they can do some damage," Shaq said, while calling Roy a "fabulous player".

"It usually takes a team four, five, six years to get that (way). I'm not sure how long these guys have been together but if they can keep these guys together for a long time, they're going to make some noise."

O'Neal was then asked what Portland is missing.

"Nothing. They've got it," Shaq said.

Yeah, I saw that elsewhere. Good things to hear, especially since you know Shaq is sincere since he wouldn't hesitate to verbally bash somebody he thinks is inferior or soft. Shaq should just retire already and become Oden's coach. Then he and Roy can hang out all they want.

It's true Portland has all the pieces... at this point its about gaining experience and gelling as a team.

well you just gotta hope that the players continue to have good chemistry. There will be a time when extensions need to be made, and thats when the true colors of players will come out. Hopefully all your guys will realize what they have in front of them and take advantage of it rather than be selfish. If that happens, this team has a real chance at being the dynasty team of the next decade.
