Shaq to Europe?
Is Shaq seriously considering going to Europe?
So Shaq is 38. IMO, this is a good time for him to go to Europe because he would appreciate being in Europe because he is at the end of his career. This would be like European soccer players coming to the MLS at the end of their careers. He would be a reverse-Beckham. I like the idea.
Dominque Wilkins and Byron Scott also went Euro when the NBA didn't want them.
sofoklis schortsanitis is the closest thing to shaq you will ever see on a euro team
Listening to a Donkey's arse hole is just as informing
Shaq is the 3rd best true center in the NBA right now. Howard, Bynum, then Shaq.
Celtics or Lakers pick your choice Shaq.
sup, are you serious?
"Shaq is the 3rd best true center in the NBA right now. Howard, Bynum, then Shaq. "
Have you watched basketball since like.....2005?
Who else is seeing Shaq? Y'all crazy
shaq isnt goin to europe ! if he doesnt find a job on the court he will be making another tv show
if Shaq would accept not playing 30 minutes a night, and a contract that was reasonable. I think Utah would be a great place for him.
sup..has a point..shaq is still a productive center..but he's not top 3 maybe top 10...
i dont even think he top 10. I would take a lot of centers over him. Mark CUban took haywood and chandler over him and i dont blame .
Still nobody has named any other pure centers they'd put before Shaq (besides Bynum and Howard.)
All I'm saying is that match up wise Shaquille has an advantage over every other center in the league right now.
Brook Lopez, Andrew Bogut, Marc Gasol, and Al Jefferson are all better than Shaq right now.
The difference between top 3 and top 10 is HUGE anyway.
The difference between the #3 guy at SF is Kevin Durant/Camelo Anthony (depending on who you think is the 3rd best right now) and a #10 guy like a Gerald Wallace.
i think he should forget about winning another ring..and resign with the Cavs and PAD his STATS...
"Still nobody has named any other pure centers they'd put before Shaq (besides Bynum and Howard.). "
Chris Kaman, Andrew Bogut, Brook Lopez, Marc Gasol, Nene', Kendrick Perkins are guys off the top of my head I'd take over Shaq.
Shaq would destroy those guys. But let me help you guys out, you could argue Greg Oden.
ill take a lot over shaq. Off the top of my head:
bynum, kaman, dalembert, biedrins, both lopez twins... well you can see where im going with this. Almost every starting center in the league i would take over shaq right now. He doesnt get deep post position consistently any more. He never was a good help defender or pick and roll defender. He is slow, doesnt hit ft's and the cavs falt out looked worse with him on the court then with him on the bench most the time. There is a reason nobody is throwing anything close to the mid level at him.
He can't destroy anybody right now. If he could, don't you think this thread would say something like "Shaq to (insert NBA team here)"?
He needs to go over there, it seems like the $10 million is what he's thinking about anyways. And there is NO chance in hell he will ever make that kind of money again in the NBA...So long Big Eurostotle...
llperez we all know you're bias against Shaq. But seriously people this guy abused Jokim Noah. You simply cannot match Shaq with 2nd tier centers.
There are 5 true centers in real NBA convo. Howard, Shaq, Bynum, Yao and Greg Oden. Of those 5 only two of them were healthy enough to truly contribute in this years playoffs, and that's Shaq and Howard. Anyhow you look at it, Shaq is in the convo and deserves his money!
me not liking shaq has nothing to do with my opinon on him not being very good any more. If he is top 10, then why is he not signed? We arent even hearing anything about teams going after him. Atlanta said that if he did sign there, he would come off the bench. Boston could have had him, but went with jermaine oneal. What does all this tell you
Shaq is still a solid player and I really think he can help a team out. If I was a team like Boston, which needs a Center now, I would pick up Shaq if he is willing to play limited minutes and to accept a cheap contract. Him and Kendrick Perkins are the only centers in the NBA that can guard Dwight Howard and with Perkins injured, they're need someone to fill that void.
I think Boston should sign him for the first part of the season to "hold down the fort" while Perkins is gone. Between the 2 Oneals they would have good production from the center position. Also that 10 million figure seems high. He was almost traded for Marvin Williams and he only makes about 6 million. I believe Boston only has the MLE so 5.8 is the most they could offer. If he wants 10 then Shaq to Europe doesn't sound to off.
I dont know why this effing site loves greg oden since when did he become a top five center? F aggets on this site will say some stupid s hit like mention he untapped potential or his efficancy but you hqve to look at the cold hard stats and greg oden does not produce numbers of a tip 5 center period. He is an injury prone bust
lmao at Shaq being better than Andrew Bogut right now.
better than bogut?
maybe when he had that chicken wing arm
Reports indicate that Shaq will be the starter for the defending NBA finalist Boston Celtics. I guess that officially ends our conversation. Celtics need Shaq to guard true centers and create matchup problems. They don't care about Perkins, lolz Shaq will make more than him. Furthermore doc can coach the big fella, let's just say Mike Brown was distracted.
P.S. I like the moves both the Lakers and Celtics have made. Next years final will be a great rematch
