Shaq's doing walk-throughs, and Andy's doing light work outs.
The last 2 puzzle pieces are almost in place. Just in time..........

Exactly. I'm very happy to hear both players are coming along fine. I was actually at the Bucks/Cavs game at the guy sitting next to me was saying that the Shaq isn't coming back at all because of the injury. I'm glad to see that he was an idiot.

I just hope Shaq isn't rushing it, but he had the top hand specialist in the USA in Baltimore (affiliated with Cleveland Clinic) so, he's not going to be released by anybody, including the Cavs doc, unless he's really ready. He needs to get back in the grove BEFORE the playoff appearances begin though.

And as far as Andy's situation.... I read somewhere that a pulled hamstring can turn into a torn hamstring if not given proper healing time. So playoff-wise, we're looking at 2 weeks unless there's a break prior. Haven't seen anything posted yet, have you?

Go on NBA.com and vote for LeBron for MVP. Fans have some input this year.

It sounds like Shaq is ahead of schedule with the comeback. That is good because he needs to get back in the groove and play more with Leon and Antawn, the newest members, before the playoffs start.

I haven't heard anything for sure yet about Andy. I did hear the same stuff about Shaq and possibly coming back for a few games before the playoffs. Since we clinched last night though, we don't have to worry about rushing anyone back. Everyone can rest as much as they want until the playoffs start as far as I'm concerned.

Out of all the games left, the Pacers aren't in payoff contention. So, I'd be worried about injuries and resting players, however, Cavs might still want that win. They HAVE to take down Orlando though. That would be a statement and just MAYBE that's the game Shaq is wanting to come back to.:-)

I don't see the Orlando game as important. We clinched everything at this point, so the only reason why we would need this game would be to run some new plays and try out how things work against the Magic. Once we have Shaq back, we'll match up so well with the Magic it'll be great.

Just like you, I am also worried about injuries and resting players. I'm also worried about resting people and then having them go cold because they weren't playing at the same level.

The Magic got lucky against the Cavs and were shooting a ridiculous percentage against us. That won't happen this year. I know we agreed to disagree on this topic already, but as soon as the Cavs vs. Magic series starts you'll know where to find me.

Sho nuff.But then again,the magic got Dwight howard,a player who's nearly impossible to stop.

I'm not going to get into this one with you again since we just argue ourselves in circles, but two times this year Shaq shut down Howard and the Cavs got the win. Also, we have Jamison too, someone we didn't have in any game against the Magic this year. And, JJ did a nice job defending Howard when he had to. It wasn't perfect, but remember him stuffing Howard? If I were a Magic fan, I'd be very worried about playing the Cavs.

Im not worried,the magic got a lot of offensive weapons.They got a champion caliber player in Jason Williams,a good defensive player in Matt Barnes,a very good 3 point shooter,and one of the nba's best scores in Vince Carter,and of course the block shot master Dwight Howard,the cav's should be terrified.

The funny thing though is we're not terrified. Howard is limited by Shaq. Carter is limited by himself (he went 2-9 against our scrubs from the field?). Williams barely plays and is shut down defensively by our guys that are bigger than him. Barnes isn't going to shut down any of our major scorers.

I'm not worried at all about the magic. The Magic should be worried about matching up with Jamison. You can't play both your centers the whole game. Cavs in 5.
