    And to think Shaq's getting the highest salary, expected to only play for less minutes than Amare

    I think its a good trade for both parts. It will in fact change up the Suns system which is a good thing because with the previous run and gun they could win a lot of game but when it came down to the playoffs they were all burnt out and could not get that ring. A Big man is the key part to a great Championship team. Look at the Spurs with Duncan, Also look at the Lakers now with Gasol. The Heat win a bit more on this trade with younger players and a lot more athletisim to build around

    Ohhh dude! There can be no doubt that the series in question was controversial, and subject to intense scrutiny. Can't blame anybody for THAT.

    But I agree that Shaq will be able to fit in with the Suns.

    That is very inaccurate to say that if the Suns did not have the suspensions in the playoffs against the Spurs than they would have won? All that is, is just a poor attemt of saying what if this, or what if that, to try and prove an invalid point. In addition, the Spurs are the best and have been the best at adjusting, which means if Staudamire was in the those games, they probably still would have lost.
    Another thing is that by having STaidamire playing his rightful position at Power Foward it allows him to be more effective on that team. Shaq will be completely fine in that offense, and make the team much much better. LOOK at Kareem Abdul-Jabbar when the Lakers won the champioships with the very similar style of play they used, compared with the Suns offense.

    Shaq is known to ALWAYS make his teamates better. Oh my bad, let me give you an example or 2, Penny Hardaway, Kobe Bryant, Dwayne Wade. Think about this, he finally get to a team with more talent than any of those other teams? Of course he doesnt have to be in his prime anymore, because it will not matter. Think before you respond!!!!.....FLAWLESS VIIIICTORY!!!!!

    Matt, I'm going to stand in disgreement with you on his ability to overcome his health and age issues for a shot at another ring, and wait until May or June to see who's right. Stay tuned.

    Wasn't it that ref that got caught gambling that cost the Suns the playoffs? I know Stern approved those unfair suspensions.

    I say don't underestimate Shaq. When a guy like that wants something bad enough.........

    Basically Beasley is Marion with a better jumper.

    Ok, here we go bc i am in favor of this trade......Good trade for both teams

    1. Marion on the Suns, they have not won anything, even wehn Amari got suspended, you cant sit there and say they would have because you will never know. Esepcially against the Spurs who are the masters of adjusting.

    2. Shaq is older but still efective and can and WILL be very effective on THIS team. Shaq will put everything on the line to get in shape, get healthy and be highly motivated to do so because he knows he will have a very legitimate shot at winning a champioship, especially with him giving his all. He didnt care to give it his all anymore over there in Miami. Thier just not good with the exception of Shaq and wade, and Haslme too who is injured. The suns have one of the best, if not the best trainers in the NBA. Look at how Staudamire came back healthy, Nash has rarely been injured, ANNNNND Grant Hill is pretty healthy. One last thing, Shaq has always played MUCH better when he is surrounded by doubt from the media.

    Could you imagine the Heat draft a Derrick Rose and also have Shawn Marion and Dwayne Wade?

    Looks like everyone on Around the Horn was befuddled by the move.

    Shaq is no longer a monster...only a matter of time till he gets injured again.

    Fact of the matter is it is funny. The Suns got absolutely robbed and they think they good a great player in return...Shaq is a has been.

    Phoenix needs a big man, true, but can Shaq run with the rest of the team? I really doubt it.
    With Shaq they can run more half court offense and run a little less. He's still a monster on the low post.
