If the heat can play well benching Shaq as much as possible he'll be good to play as well as ever in the playoffs...he just can't handle the long season and the playoffs...I say the play him 35 minutes a game in the first half of the season and maybe 10minutes a game in the second half. This way they can win...I'm not a fan of the heat or anything but I think they've still got the best shot...I'd love to see Labron James take it with his team but I don't think they're quite ready yet

I don't know about Shaq....

Yao Ming made him look pretty old and ordinary last night (except for that elbow to the head of course )

He's just a little worn...he just needs to sit on his butt for a while. I'm assuming he's spending too much of his energy cheating on his wife...maybe he'll dumb that down a little at the end of the season

What if you had to be Shaq size???

then you would need customized Laborghinis (or a hole in the roof)

 

just heard Shaq is out with a minor injury.

 

 

I wouldn't wanna be Shaq either...I just want his money so I can open a million vegan businesses and get a Lamborghini in every color

They probably are but I think they can get pretty far without Shaq at all...I just don't think they can go all the way unless they can get him for at least 25 minutes a game later in the playoffs

I still wish the kept Rasual Butler a few years ago...he's a good guy. I hung out with him a fair bit when I was going to LaSalle with him...not a really big guy but he's good at playing guard, switching to foreward and even filling in as an extra center

Wow !!

Can you believe all the injuries this year???

Some people are calling for a shorter season (less games / same length of season) to lessen the injury impact.

 

I can't remember seeing so many big name players out with injuries
