Doug,

You make some legitimate points, and I have always loved to read your articles. However, your article also shows that your watching of the Lakers this year has been limited. Turiaf is a much, much better shooter than Shaquille O'Neal.

Doug,

I agree with you on most of what you say, but Turiaf can shoot from the outside. Comparing him to Shaq is not a close analogy - at all. I will say Turiaf can be streaky, and overall decent enough to keep defenses honest. Only thing is he needs to only shoot when open, not forcing shots...
