Shaq Returns Tonight

The Cavs won four of the five games he missed, but they’re ready to welcome him back to the lineup: “After missing five games with a shoulder strain, O’Neal said he expected to play Wednesday night at Detroit. Asked to put a percentage on his chances of returning that night, O’Neal grinned and said, ‘Twenty-seven percent.’ But he amended that later and said he expected to play as long as he doesn’t have any setbacks. ‘It felt pretty good,’ O’Neal said of his first practice in a couple weeks. ‘I got it banged up once or twice today, so I’ll go home tonight and hopefully it doesn’t feel too bad in the morning.”‘

    Us Swedes fear that Jonas Jerebko will have to gaurd LeBron. Let’s hope he’ll be gentle.

    He took a week off to deal with losing $100 M from his divorce.
    Reporter: “Which shoulder was it?”
    Shaq: “Left…and right.”

    According to Brian Windhorst at the Plain Dealer, Shaq won’t play tonight – Mike Brown’s decision. New target for return is Friday @ CHA.

    man if u ask me, i think shaq should just give up already… i mean, hes like 38 and he will just slow down a fast team like the cavs. Now the cavs have to deal with the infamous “shaq attack” technique that has been used against the lakers, suns, magic, and heat throughout the years. Sorry to all u shaq fans, but he just has to go.

    “The first of four of Shaq’s regular season vacations (as stipulated by his contract) is at an end…”

    Man I wanted to see him play against the Wizards to see what kind of interaction went between him and Gilbert Arenas after Shaq got caught cheating on his wife again by banging Gilbert Arenas fiance. Thats effed up man. Why’d you do it Shaq! How do you compete with Shaq’s mandingo? lol

    I hope Shaq will play good.He hasnt started off in the best signs.

  • Yesse

    Duncan21, i have the answer for your question.The last time Cavs played Wizards (the time when Shaq played), Shaq played his best game against Wizards as a Cavalier.I think that tells something.

    Is Shaq the reason the Wizards are getting “scroo’d over”?

  • Yesse

    Man has anybody actually watched the Cavs this year? He was ESSENTIAL in their road wins vs MIA and ORL.

    Stop hating on Shaq, he fits well with the Cavs. Check last years avarages, and that was in a system he didn’t fit in. Cavs play half-court and he will do fine.
