I say go get Shaq
Would prefer to see him come off the bench , just so we could get off to a faster paced start. Shaq would be good for 20-25 minutes MAX.
If he were to start, would prefer to see him play most of his minutes in the first half & 3rd quarter....then roll with Jermaine and Big Baby in the 4th when every free throw counts........remember how Doc is always saying that many games are won in the first quarter or first half.....Shaq is not a stiff and was in good shape last year and with PHX the year before. I say use Shaq in the first half to set the tone and get the opponents bigs in foul trouble
Shaq will want to punish Miami, Orlando and the Lakers....and if the Suns make it to the finals he would be extra pumped up for them too....
We need rebounding and a low post presence , both Jermaine and Shaq have good hands and I can see Rondo making them both look real good
Bring Shaq in, Cleveland will do a sign and trade just to get something, perhaps this is what Von Wafer and/or Marquis are for ? Sign Scal to a minimum and throw in Oliver Lafayette or Gaffney and Shaq could have a nice $4-5M contract.....
I think Rasheeds money should get us another younger core player, not a one year rent a wreck.......maybe Danny will hold Rasheed's contract until the deadline ?
I love the idea of Shaq coming to Boston, how could he not get along with the Big 3 ? Also I think Rondo's pass first attitude would be an incentive for Shaq....can't you just see Rondo setting up Shaq on pick& roll or alley ooooops five or six times a game ? Shaq would love it here........go get him !!!!
