You think Shaq is better than Yao that's why this happened, notice is game 4 not game 7. This is what happens when Shaq puts his team on his back.

Try and make excuses all you want, but Shaq was AT WORST the #2 guy on the championship Heat. Yao as the #1 or #2, with T-Mac as the one Yao isn't, still can't get past the first round.

Shaq is more than just numbers. He's a force to be reckoned with. Like Knickscity said, Shaq's mere presence on the court demands respect. Yao may put up good numbers, but people know they can single team or him send their 6'1" SG and he will block Yao.

And did someone really try and say Shaq sucks because Ben Wallace shut him down? Really? You know, the same 4x Defensive Player of the Year Ben Wallace?

Yikes, you're making yourself look worse.

And Kwame is a huge bust. #5 by SI I think. I'd say he ranks up there in the Top 5. Kandi man is a pretty big bust. Sam Bowie is #1 of course. The only thing Kwame has going for him is that his draft class was kind of weak. But still. He's horrible.

I'd happily trade Kwame, Bynum, VRad and whatever to the Pacers for JO and Troy Murphy!

Good post.

I just wanted to add that Nate Robinson is 5'7" and got a block on Yao.

Toda'ys shaq is not better than Yao. You can say all you want about impact on the game but read what happens when Shaq puts his team on his back. Sweep! One on one, Yao 36 pts, 14 boards. Thank You. Don't ignore reality.

You conveniently forgot to mention the first round exit by Yao and the Rockets.

Again.

All Rockets fans seem to forget that...

Oh, and the year they didn't even make the playoffs. The Heat haven't missed the playoffs since Shaq-daddy came to town, AND they have a ring.

Since everyone considers "Today's Shaq" to be 2004-present...

"Today's Shaq" > Yao Ming

I can't believe a Rockets fan is whining about D-Wade, for all the (undeserved) accolades they heap on Tracy "Sore Back I Don't Know If I Want To Play Anymore Life Is Hard" McGrady.

At least Kobe whines about how his team sucks (which it does). T-Mac just whines. And cries.

You seem to forget that when Wade went down the Miami Heat had one of the best records going into the playoffs during that stretch, due to the fact that Shaq put the team on his back.

Now on the other hand, Two arguable top 10 players on the same team and they can't get out of the first round???? Wow, just Wow.

Should I post some videos and pictures of Shaq hoisting the championship trophy with D-Wade and receiving his ring for their Finals victory that year?

Or do I need to add pictures and videos of the Rockets going home at the end of round 1 again? Or how about some videos of T-Mac crying after they scrub out in the first round AGAIN?

The reality is Kobe wants to get traded. He wanted Shaq to leave, why is he whining now. Shaq is old and he's not better than Yao. Rockets actually a chance to pass the first round, no sweep! Game seven. Rockets miss the playoffs or not, that's team we're talking about. Don't change the subject. Yao is better than Shaq. Steps on the court and he's better now. WHAT A STUPID COMMENT!

It's like this every year. But for once, those who are predicting they miss the playoffs have a good point. The whole West has improved...Kobe has made demands for Lakers to do something to improve, but they have done NOTHING.
