I really hope you are right. You know what, forget it, I'm sorry BaileyPowe, but you're wrong. I really respect many of the things you post. But this is ridiculous! It is not "likely
" at all that Shaq is in ANY kind of shape. What is going on that is conceivable
to even "think" that Shaq would remotely be in better shape that the perception being given by the Celtics?
In the grand total of 37 games played, Shaq has done NOTHING this entire season to suggest this. Everything about Shaq this seaon lies in total contrast of this belief. Shaq is NOT in better shape, conceivably or any other "....ably". Shaq is in NO shape. All season, whatever perception the Celtics have given has been pointed to the more-promising side.
The Celtics could have come out before the All Star break and simply said "Shaq will be out for the rest of the regular season.
" They did not do that. From that point on, Shaq was always supposed to return in no more than a few weeks. At no point did the Celtics ever suggest he'd be out as long as he's been. Part of that has been whatever injury suits him at that time but IMO, it's mainly because he has not worked extremely hard to get into basketball shape to help this team. We knew what we were getting but Shaq no longer has that "heart of a champion
Whatever happens in the post-season, I think Shaq is gone, voluntary or involuntary.
