Anyone else think Shaq needs to hang it up soon? I can't stand seeing an eccentric yet relatively dignified figure become a bit of a journeyman. This has to be his last year right?

If he's planning on becoming a sheriff after this, I don't see how he's thinking of retiring.

If he can't be in shape to run in the NBA, how will he be in shape to be a sheriff?

It's a good signing for the Cavs. They won alot of games last year, this just reinforces them across the front court and they got it for nothing really.

Shaq will give them a solid 25 minutes? or so at the position and just like last year he doesn't have to carry the team but he's still such a huge threat in the paint that it's going to open things up for Lebron. Even at his age, if teams ignore Shaq and focus on stopping Lebron they are going to get killed in the paint.
Now all they need is a perimeter defender who can cover 3's and 4's and they'll be on their way to winning another 66 games.

Shaq is not quite the powerhouse he was during his 3 Lakers titles. They should have got Yao instead.

Yahoo news said his foot did not heal and out indefinitely

I have a question for you guys, is Shaq-Lebron a threat to the Lakers?

NO. It will definitely help them out against the Magic, but I still don't see the Cavs going through the Lakers team with just this move by itself.

LMAO.....I was going to say the same thing.....that would be the worst idea in NBA history. The work of a suicidal coach.....he may as well wear a shirt that says "Fire Me". Gasol would beat them up and down the court even if he stopped to tie his shoes........Kobe would go for 101 and break Wilt's record!!!
Hell, Gasol may go for 102 points!!!!

loool On second thought, maybe fans would pay to see all those games and cavs would be so rich to see the "slowest lineup" in NBA history.

Thats a sight to see. I'd love to see Nellie's Warriors running on that lineup.

Gasol would start at point guard. Sh!t even if we had Kwame, Kwame would run enough and put up enough shots to get 50 points

This is a good deal for Cleveland. Wow there are some teams in the league getting better and fast. Shaq is definitely better than Ben Wallace and Pavlovic (sp). It's an upgrade for them. We really need to see where Rasheed Wallace ends up. He wanted to be on Cleveland or SA last season I believe. He would be that PF who could gaurd people on the perimeter and knock down an outside shot. If Cleveland lands him or a player that can do that watch out.

The plot thickens.... Apparently Nash requested the trade.
