NBA – Top 10 Reasons Why The Shaquille O'Neal Trade Rocks The NBA
The NBA just got a lot more interesting thanks to Shaquille O'Neal heading back West to fight it out with his pals Kobe Bryant, Tim Duncan, Phil Jackson, etc. Here are the top 10 reasons why the Shaquille O'Neal trade rocks the NBA ….
10. Shaquille O'Neal is at his best when he smells Championship blood. His Phoenix Suns are close to winning it all. You will see a motivated Shaq.
9. Shaq is back not just in the West, but in the same division as Kobe Bryant, Phil Jackson and his old Los Angeles Lakers team. Will be some must-see TV coming up.
8. The Miami Heat will be helped by unloading Shaquille O'Neal's $ 20 million per year contract, and allowing them to rebuild around star Dwyane Wade.
7. Shaquille O'Neal was wallowing in Miami with a terrible team and a low-frequency Pat Riley. A player like O'Neal with only a few chances left to win describes the spotlight on the big stage.
6. Steve Nash will have his best chance to win an NBA title for sure. With Nash and O'Neal in their twilight, this should be an interesting pairing, with the pressure of time running out.
5. We will see just how good Mike D'antoni is as a Head Coach with Phoenix. He has a bad run of luck going but maybe his luck has changed.
4. How good is Phil Jackson when matched against the likes of Shaquille O'Neal being fed by Steve Nash? Can Jackson devise a plan to stop this supposed juggernaut?
3. Is Kobe player enough to lead a Los Angeles Lakers team through Shaq-land to the Promised Land?
2. Can the San Antonio Spurs finally repeat, and now repeat in the face of Shaquille O'Neal?
1. It will be a lot more fun with Shaquille O'Neal in the middle of everything NBA Playoffs than with him sitting on his sofa in Miami.
