Shaq in the Big Apple, Really?

The NY Daily News doesn’t think it’s too far fetched: “Shaquille O’Neal is the ultimate showman, so why not give him a chance to play Broadway? From what I gather from people close to O’Neal is that the Suns center would welcome a trade to the Knicks if such a deal could be worked out. Shaq’s contract – he’ll earn $20 million next year in the final season of his deal – fits into the Knicks’ free agent plans for 2010.”

    Since I was bored, I tried this on ESPN trade machine and came up with nothing in a trade that made sense for Phoenix other than Marbury.

    Could happen. It’s part of what the Knicks are all about; skyrocket their payroll with past-their-prime athletes.

    That’s some bs journalism. ”From what I gather from people close to O’Neal is that the Suns center would welcome a trade to the Knicks”
    Reporter : Do you think Shaq would like to play in New York?
    Random entourage dude : Oh yeah!
    TADAM! There goes the lead of the story!

    And if we’re taking the science fiction route, let’s at least talk about one that’s fun to think about. Post the Shaq to LA bullshiit.

    STUPID mike d’antoni is a running coach and one of the main reasons he left the suns is because he wanted a faster pace and shaq just can’t do that …..
