I'd like to give my biggest thanks to Shaq. He delivered a championship to Miami and proved himself to the doubters (aka. a$$holes) who said he couldn't win without Kobe. This is directed to all of you Kobe lovers/alleged Laker fans who always made fun of Shaq during and after the trade from The Lakers. This is what you get for not believing in The Diesel.
And does anyone think Jerry Buss believes, even in hindsight, that he would still trade Shaq 100 times out of 100?
I'll add some more new nicknames for Shaq:
"The Big Vindication"
"The Big Redemption"
"The Big Validation"
Again, thank you Shaq, for this Championship. I always knew you could do it when most thought otherwise.
