Shaq is better than JO. And with a cheaper contract. Great move Riley.

Shaq may be a better scorer now, but you seem to have forgotten that he did not want to play for the Heat. Did you notice how quickly his ailments were cured after he was traded?

"although the league has a directive in place encouraging teams to continue to feature their prime players."

It might have been a good idea to explain the details of this "league directive". Just a thought.

wade obviously should not play. its not as if he's going to play all 82 because he's already missed a game.

Tejas is right, why risk some injury to Wade playing him in a meaningless game?
