    he asked for the trade.

    Good deal for the suns if ben wallace retires like he said he might.

    Bill Simmons take: Cleveland's trade for Shaq was like someone buying homeowner's insurance 4 weeks after losing everything in a house robbery.

    Don't like the move for the Cavs. Don't need a out of his prime expensive center( I no he played good last year but im skeptical) who can't run the floor and will clog up the lane when lebron looks to penetrate.

    He's not exactly the Shaq in his prime that Kobe got to play with, but he'll be good enough for LeBron to win a championship next year. Yes, I'm making a way too early prediction. Cavs=2010 NBA champions.

    Agree with the above poster... from what I've read and heard before this trade was that many experts think adding a legit big man to the Cavs would hurt Lebron's game.

    Don't put too much stress on that limb.

    Yeah. Lakers tend to like to win their championships in bunches. So good luck Cavs!

    Re: Shaq traded to the Cavs

    Imo, this is a bad fit for Cleveland and the analogy of buying home owners insurance 4 weeks after losing everything in a house robbery doesn't even suffice. Shaq is fading quickly. Isn't a full season solution. They'll have to save him for the playoffs and hope he has enough in the tank for that. I think next year will end up being the straw that breaks the camel's back for LeBron's days in Cleveland.

    This seems like a horrible idea to me. Wasn't a big problem they had with Orlando that Dwight Howard easily beat their big men down court?

    I don't see Shaq fixing that, and I don't see how he is able to complement LeBron's game. If I were a Cavs fan, once I got past the big name Shaq has, I'd really be shaking my head.

    Exactly. I get the feeling that more than anything this is Cleveland trying to say to LeBron "see, we're trying to get you help" so he doesn't bail on them, which I think will happen.

    I keep hearing people, talking heads, heralding this move and I frankly think it's maybe one of the dumber moves they could have made.
    We'll see, I've been wrong before, but it just doesn't sit right for the reason mentioned.

    If I am Dwight Howard...I am not worried.

    Yeah, I have trouble seeing this helping their case to keep LeBron. I assumed he was staying, but a move like this makes me wonder (about something that I can't possibly know) whether it's worse for the Cavs than we know.

    Either way, I just don't see a real inspired decision here.
