In Response to Re: We are officially in trouble
[QUOTE]If you're praying that Shaq is going to be your savior, you are in trouble. Shaq has been on a downward spiral since he left L.A. And when he was in his prime, Shaq was lazy, unwilling to work hard to stay in shape or play defense. It's impossible to change old habits, especially at this stage in Shaq's career. The only reason Shaq didn' consider retirement was in reaction to that Kobe rant about having more rings. Ego is what has always driven famous people and Shaq Daddy has a Texas size one. No one can escape father time and Danny boy was reacting to the rumor that the Lakers were going to trade Bynum for Carmelo and let the anchor of the Celtics go when he shipped Perkins.
At this stage, no one can predict what will happen, who will make it to the finals. Besides talent, luck is also involved. The mental is just as important as the talent level. Look at both the Lakers and now the Heat. Everyone on this board had both those teams buried. And yet both those teams had impressive wins yesterday with Miami burying the NBA team with the best record.

That just gets funnier and funnier every time I read it. Melo was traded BEFORE Perkins, how could he be reacting to a rumor............the trade to NY was done, THEN Perk was traded.... I'm quite sure Danny makes all his trades based on rumors about the lakers...............quite amusing!!
All teams go through slumps.....this is ours. Rondo needs a day off, Ray needs a day off.................Shaq needs to come back and give us 10 and 5 in about 20 mins. Krstic is doing fine, but we need bangers right now.
If we are healthy when the playoffs start, we will be fine.....just like last year. I would still like the #1 seed, but as long as we have a better record than MIA and LAL, we should be okay!
