    I was just looking at stats.. Shaq Averaged 23 points, 14 rebounds 3.5 blocks
    his first year in the league (92).. .that's crazy.. and he averaged 29, 13 and 3
    in his second year.. All of his numbers are impressive. I remember how
    strong and fast he was.. The closest thing I've seen to that, in terms of impact
    is probably Lebron. But shaq took his expansion team to the finals right away..
    2nd year right?.. anyway.. I see the sports writers trying to blot him out but
    shaq is still the man.. He still deserves attention.. and his ego is not so big that
    he has to be the focus of the offense. I'd love to see him win a ring with Boston
    against the Lakers.. that would be a good note to retire on..

    so far it's 12 points and 7 rebounds in 22 minutes per game.. he had 23 and 11 the
    other night in something like 34 minutes.. he's looking good.. If he stays
    healthy he could push boston over the top.. especially when it comes to
    the ever-improving dwight howard.. dwight is helpless when you put a big
    body on him.. I'm itching for this Boston / Laker showdown where Shaq wins
    his final ring against his old team..

    BOSTON want last the LAKERS too deep and a crunch time kinda team
    they will need Ray / Paul and KG firing and making some defensive stops
    or they will get blasted

    Eh.

    It will be the Miami Heatles coming outta the East. Boston's just too old.
    Get KG and Ray Al some walkers. For Shaq, a oxygen mask. There is no way that team can run with Miami.

    7 game series are not about running.. they're about half-court offense and
    defense.. and Miami's half-court game is no better than Bostons.. Don't let
    the win steaks fool you.. when it comes down to the nitty gritty, Miami does
    not have a shooter as good as Ray Allen.. Rondo and Lebron cancel each
    other out because they do the same things.. Wade and Pierce can both
    get their shot whenever they want.. this whole series is going to come down
    to the Bigs.. to Bosh's territory.. and when you take it down low in a half
    court set, Boston has the advantage.. They have too many big bodies
    down low.. KG can hold Bosh to regular stats.. Shaq can surprise you in
    the clutch.. and Perkins, Davis were born with hard hats on.. I don't think
    Haslem, Bosh and Z can win a physical series down low.. We'll see though..
    it would be a wonderful series.. it's going to also really come down to coaching
    and the advantage there is also with Boston.. in fact, I'm no so sure the
    big 3 in Miami have any real faith in their coach.. I think they are winning
    right now through pure improvisation.. and listen, nobody coaches never win titles..
    never.. 7 game series are strategic battles.. how polished is Miami's coach?

    But let's not forget what Chicago has done for their half court game by
    landing Boozer.. And Orlando and NY.. the East should be interesting this
    year..
