How is it that Zo was able to block shots from the weak side defensive help position without fouling and Shaq is not. Just once in Shaq's career I would like to hear him say it's his fault and not blame his teammates The fact of the matter is he's slow to react to the play, and comes over and throws a hip into the offensive player or chops down on the shooter instead of keeping his hands straight up. The Heat's perimeter defenders are weak, but so are Shaq's excuses.

Chris Quinn always loved the way that he could count on Zo to have his back.

I didn't know Quinn needed teamates Analyst. I was sure he was a lock down defender. He had my vote for defensive player of the year before this startling revelation.

Why can't Coach Riley admit he's wrong and put the big man, Mark Blount, into the lineup? He plays much bigger than his 7' frame. He could turn this whole season around. I think he can be a dominant force in the paint if only Riley who put his foolish pride behind him. Forgive me for saying it by I think MB is the most underrated player in the NBA and should be a shoe-in for the all-star team and probably the next dream team.
