most certainly... the lakers and suns already don't like each other. add in the shaq/kobe angle and it's a ratings bonanza. and if it is, indeed, boston that's waiting for the winner?

$tern will be mo$t happy with thi$ trade.

It's either going to be a genius move or a colossal bust, the difference between legitimate championship contention and ongoing mediocrity.

Obviously, I'm hoping for the latter. I just don't see why trading your best defender, leading rebounder, and scoring threat (as well as a backup for an aging Nash in an already thin rotation) for an overweight, over-the-hill Shaq. I don't see how it makes the Suns any better, considering his level of play this season in the games he's been healthy.

But if the big fella has got anything left in the tank, this could work out extremely well.

The Laker game last night was such a joy for me to watch.
Good times ahead.

Hey, gang. The Suns are already selling Shaq merchandise:





Not going to lie, I stole that from a basketball board I frequent.

I don't think there's any chance Shaq throws away 20 million and retires after this year, championship or not. Not with a divorce going down. And I don't think there is any reason for anyone to double team him anymore, the quickness is gone. Just doesn't have the moves.

But it's a good move for Phoenix, as long as they don't care about the money. Marion isn't that big a loss, imo.

Sure makes things interesting.

shawn marion, like quention richardson and joe johnson before him, is going to rue the day he left steve nash and the phoenix suns system.

If Shaq's still The Godfather, and Penny was Fredo, Kobe was Sonny, and Dwayne was Michael, does this make Nash Tom Hagen?

there's no way diane wade was michael. michael showed full well that he was capable of running the family after the godfather died.

Shaq's words, not mine.

"You just don't really want to get me upset. When I'm upset, I'm known to do certain things - like kill." Shaq then paused for dramatic effect and said, "Let me put it this way: Have you seen Shawn Bradley lately? Didn't think so."

Bradley's probably puttering around Dallas enjoying the $5,200,000 he's making this season.

But that and the $18,593,750 Cubes is paying Michael Finley to play for the Spurs come off the books next season. Science be praised.

How in the world does Finley rate an 18.6 million salary?
