    Guess Joe will need to find some beef in that draft or FA to throw at Shaq since we will see him again at least 4 times... We know Amir could not handle Shaq so Joe anticipated that match up and disposed of Amir and his 5 fouls...

    Poor Ben is now being tossed around like a rag doll since he bolted from here....

    They can't be any worse, but i don't see them getting any better.

    I wonder how having a large immobile big like Shaq is going to affect the Cavs' (read: Lebron's) offensive flow.

    Just like last year with Z. Except this year Z will get 24 and so will Shaq so it's slow-footed center all the time.

    But Z has way more range than Shaq ever did. It seems to me like Shaq is going to clog the lane for Lebron. But maybe I don't understand basketball X's and O's. I am just a casual internet fan.

    I wonder, between Shaq and Z, who would win a 50 yard footrace. I bet Shaq would dust him.

    P.S. Welcome to the club.

    Crazy move by the Cavs. I don't see why they don't just return with the same team year after year and add someone like Ron Dupree to spice things up?

    Yeah, I'm confused - I thought they were trying to copy us.

    I was thinking that Jarvis Hayes would have been the difference maker against the Magic.

    Saw something on the ESPN ticker that said Ben might retire. I hope he does and gets hired as a Pistons assistant. Defense wins championships, after all.

    Why leave all of that $$$ on the table? Not like he's going out on the top anyway.

    Money isn't everything, mik, unless you live in Santa Clara, CA, and you have a huge mortgage. :)

    I'm not so sure Ben is coaching material. Think maybe he is a little too quiet and nonconfrontational.

    I was lookin like huh??

    :focus: I wanna see how this is going to get the Cavs over the hump. I'm guessing he'll play in the must-win games for the Cavs.

    Rumor has it that Rasheed may sign with them for a two year MLE type deal.

    If this happens look out. Dwight Howard won't get many double teams with that front line.

    The biggest phony in professional sports......Shaquille O'Neal. He actually said "I am here to win a ring for the king". Just shoot me.

    We can't shoot you. You're our friend.

    Just laugh at Shaq. He is very funny.

    This trade does not make the Cavs a better team.
