It is a relief to have him out of Miami. Shaq would badmouth Mother Teresa after a charity function. The man has zero class. The Sun's regular season should be a rather pleasant downward spiral next year.

Sounds to me like you are already sounding like a bitter old man Shaq. I was your biggest fan and you gave up on Miami. I got no love left.

Oh, Shaq is still good for pre-game or after game sound bites, he will always be. But it was pretty evident from last night game that they are far, far away from meshing with one another. Heck, Shaq almost took out one of his team mates and one ref trying to hustle for a loose ball. Goodluck Shaq ....thanks for the Championship, Goodluck Suns coz your team now employs the highest paid humorist in the NBA. As for winning a championship as a SUN I guess Steve Nash somehow knew that when Matrix left the championship dreams are now one step farther. Marion is key to that Suns offense, and they trade him for 20+ mil a year for Jerry Sinefield clone.

Hey at least for 20 million a year the Suns now still can have a funny, lively press conference every night after they lost. ALl they have to do is send Shaq to the podium and start his Im a superhero stories and phoenix media who's all hyped up and ready to believe that their team are actually a step away from the championship. HAHAAHAHA they will know fast that their Suns team is inferior to the Lakers,Spurs or heck even Hornets. And if they would actually get pass this teams the Celtics will destroy thier sorry team to comic book hell. Superman is now SuperOLD, the fastest I saw him run is when he was heading for the tunnel after they lost last night. Thanks for Shawn Marion, Yes the Heat are loosing now but it is looking up. The suns just took a 300 ton dead weight that will bring them back to the bottom.

GO HEAT ! 20 million,300 Ton lighter HEAT !

If anyone does not think Rielly is the best NBA coach ever then this is another example. Once again another trade and this time the SUN's got the short end of the stick. Shaq was great at one time but the Heat moved him just in time before there was no value left. The Heat received a very good player in return! Let's hope we will keep him and pay him!

Anyone notice that Shaq lost a significant amount of weight since being in Phoenix? Did anyone also notice he was putting in some effort and was actually trying? To what do we owe the miracle? Or maybe he just stopped trying when he was here in Miami. Looks like somebody was playing possum. In that case, good riddance!!!!

You know what's funny? How the Suns fans ridiculed Shaq when he played for the Lakers, said he was washed up when he came to Miami, now they cheer for him like he is god.

It's funny, I am from PHX and this clown is telling us about B-ball. Whether you like the Suns or Heat or neither, get educated. Shaq is at the end of his career. It was a great move by Miami to unload him and they received a much better player in return. It is really pretty simple. Wish Shaq could get us a championship but now we just have to get another player or two to play defense and that is not going to happen for us out here.

You just summed Shaq up just right. He bails out on teams and bad mouths them. Unfortunately, he bad mouthed the Lakers when he left and had to eat crow and complement them after he and his Suns got beat. Miami is better off without that ingrate.

a very, very stupid article. shaq looked just old? give me a break. why can't people be realistic and honor one of the best talents our great country has ever produced over the years. we all saw the 35-year-old young man run the court last night. his best game by far since the last time we saw him in a miami heat uniform struggling with nagging injuries. good lord! he looked just old. if that is the case, then mutombo who could very well be shaq's uncle, sure looks very young, eh. in short, i have had it with listening to such disgusting articles where people just take swipes at shaq without regard for his likeable personality and contributions to the excitement of the nba.
