Hey I say trade Shaq for Odom and Kwame Brown. Then at least Shaq will play for a team that will utilize him again. I mean down here all the blame for the heat shortcomings is been on him. He gets all the blames, but he recieves no credit for being the only consistent scorer on the team. I mean I know he is averaging 16 a night but he is shooting 60 percent from the field and only gets the ball about 10 times a night. He gets no credit for out playing and scoring all of the centers everyone says is beter then in their matchups(Amare, Yao, D Howard). and he is averaging over 2 blocks a game. Yet he is consider stiff and slow. Everyone and especially Ira says he needs to create his own shots but I never saw a post player create all of his shots. Every post player needs to be fed, Yao gets the ball from TMac and Skip, Amare gets alleys from Nash, Duncan gets his passes from everyone on the Spurs, and D howard gets his passes from first before anyone. Why does Shaq has to be the only post player to create his shot even Howard who is leading the league in offensive rebounds with near 4 a game has the ball passed to him, even if he hit all of the shots thats only 8 points so in order for him to hit 23 a night he has to be fed. And with the best player on the planet in Kobe, they will be reunited and Kobe has been trying to get the big guys on his team to bang in the middle but they cant. I say do that deal Miami wants to run and build for the future do the deal. Shaq will thrive in LA because Kobe wants to win now he knows Shaq has loss a step or two but he knows the big fella still have some fuel leftover. And for Miami the only year Odom really played good was when he was down here. With this deal they wont compete for a championship, evryone will get what they want a fast pace game and lots of points but a lot losses.

Do the deal Riley!!!
