Shaq Attack is Back in the West!

On February 7, 2008, in General, by Neil Stevens

If you thought the Lakers acquiring Pau Gasol for Kwame Brown, Javaris Crittenden, Marc Gasol’s draft rights, and two picks was big, well, so did the Suns.

They were so impressed that they picked up the most dominant center ever, Shaquille O’Neal, for Shawn Marion and Marcus Banks.

Shaq’s well past his prime now, and I’ve always been a fan of Marion, so I don’t think too highly of this trade from the Suns’ perspective. Is Shaq going to match up better defensively against the Lakers’ new front line? He’s certainly not going to be able to run the floor like Marion and Amaré Stoudemire. And that still leaves the problem of guarding Lamar Odom.

I just don’t get it.
