Shaq to the Cavs

Recommended Posts

The Cavs acquired center Shaquille O'Neal from the Phoenix Suns for forward/center Ben Wallace, a second-round selection in the 2010 NBA draft and cash considerations.

At least LeBron and Shaq will have some fun with interviews and pregame introductions.

He should fit better with Cleveland as they play more half court than Phoenix does. Still, not sure if he's worth the 20 million or whatever they'll have to pay him. Plus, now they have either Varejo or Illgauskas sitting on the bench a lot.

I think it would have made more sense to spend the money on someone like Turkoglu or save it for Chris Bosh.

varejo is a free agent so he will proably be gone move illgauskas to forward and have to towers out there

Good move, Shaq isn't what he was but still a huge presence down low. It will be fun watching them next year for sure.

Yeah, Shaq getting dunk after dunk when Lebron breaks down the defense and hands it off.

I read somewhere that they were going to try to resign Vareajo so it will be interesting to see what they do.

Personally, I think they're just doing it to pacify Lebron. They want to show him they're committed to winning so he doesn't bail next year. I think he's gone to NY anyway.

This is the year to scoop up free agents while other teams hold their money for Lebron, Wade and Bosh next season.

there are no good free agents out there...........plus Shaq's contract comes off the books after this year I believe so they will have the money to go after any of the free agents next year....I bet Ron Artest sign a mid-level contract to play with Lebron and Shaq next year.........and the Cav's will win the championship in 09-10 season!!!!

who cares, still need players around you. One guy just cant win it! Ya Kobe is a rock star, and the best in the game right now, but still needs the guys around him to get there

yeah I saw that and it looks like Ariza will sign with Houston...so the question is Are the Lakers better with Artest or Ariza???

It probably won't make a huge difference unless Artest causes waves and gets into trouble. I don't think he will on this team. Both are great defenders. Ariza has a better touch from outside, but Artest can shoot the three and is a better scorer down low. I'm sure the the Lakers wanted to keep Ariza because he's young but couldn't let Odom go. They're built to win now.

  • Your Responses - Share & Have Fun :)

    • It might be better to buy a small second unit and link them.    My guess is what you want is not something enough people want to justify implementing.   Personally I have a hard enough time watching a bobber.
    • Welcome to the Forum.  What brand gun is it? Would help to pick choke tubes out.  Size 6 shot should do the trick, but I'm sure more folks will chime in here. 
    • I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option. 
    • I just purchased a used 20 gauge for my 14 year old daughter. I hunt mostly state land for pheasants. It is a 2 3/4 auto with interchangeable chokes. What size steel shot and choke tube would you recomend for her?
    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
    • love those when ya see them!!!
    • Took the kayak crappie fishing opening weekend and when calm always bring with the DSLR with. These turtles are glad the weather has finally consistently warmed up. I always find it funny seeing turtles stacked on top of each other and found a few along with multiple species which was nice.     
    • I was going to hunt wi this weekend but fishing musky with my fly rod is what I will do instead.  Good luck!!!!!!!
    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
