Brace yourselves because they play phoenix next. that is going to be a smack down. 3 rebounds for Shaq is pitiful. I can't believe that we have him for 3 more years at $20mil +. didn't Riley learn from Grant & EJ that you cannot sign old players to long-term max deals. That was a bad signing the day that they did it. Hopefully Riles can work his trade magic and get another disgruntled star to play with Wade.

All you people ripping Shaq are idiots. It's not Shaq, it's the talent around him. When Duncan got double and triple teamed last night, he kicked to Mano and Mano knocked down the three. When Shaq got the same treatment he kicked to Wright or Davis and the y missed consistently.

If they would knock down their shots Shaq wouldn't be double and triple teamed. He would get one on one defense and he would get easy buckets. It's NOT Shaq you idiots...it's not having Wade or others that can play as well as Mano.

You got that right. The only fault with Shaq right now is his rebounding.

People...don't panic..We will gel, when Wade comes back and offers the penetration and jump shot that we are currently missing..our biggest problem is not who we didnt get in the offseason, it's who we didn't keep...The only way to win with a Riley coached (defensive style, half court set offense) and Shaq Oriented team is to have good outside shooters to punish teams when we go to the post game....Posey was an amazing outside shooter who was also our best defender..Kapono, was an insane outside shooter who had one of the quickest releases in the game..If you watch the games, we take an unbelievable amount of open jump shots while Shaq passes out of double teams..Posey and Kapono were the key to making this offense work...Ricky Davis does have a pretty good jump shot and wade's isn't half bad...we'll have to see how that plays out...but losing kapono and Posey is going to be the difference between this team being a possible playoff team and legitimite title contender
