So how many championships have the Suns won? Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but I would rather have sports writers wait until the championship is won to say whether a trade like this actually worked or not. The reason why things slow down in the playoffs is because you play the same team over and over as opposed to playing a different team every other day or so. Shaq will end up being the Suns magic weapon come playoff time.

Sam, you continue to be one of the few sports writers who combine insight and humor along with the facts.
I'll put my money on your observation. Shaq is kidding himself if they can figure it out by the playoffs.
There are 4 equal or better teams out West and they will be saying sayonara as the Suns set.

Sam ... The Suns brought the running game back to the NBA. The problem they now have is that several other Western Division teams are playing that way with better personnel. Even with Marion they were not going anywhere in the playoffs this season. Nash, never a strong guy, is breaking down... They depend on 3 point shooting too much and Nash cannot penetrate and score like some other point guards (Paul, Williams, Parker, Davis, Iverson) in the West ... Their only chance is a hybrid game of running and power. But,
since D'Antoni, does not believe in defense it is hard to believe the Suns could defeat the Spurs in a series.
