marion put up similar numbers before nash he'll get his numbers..

hopefully d wade shuts it down tho and marion hates miami so he opts out.

than the heat would be set.
Real talk... they were just talkin about that on ESPN... lets not forget he was an all-star player before Nash...

I hope he opts out and comes to LA :D

if marion opts out they can..

again heat lineup should be

rose and brand to add to this team plus another vet or two with the exception :applause:
even discussing the possibility that Marion will opt out is

he has a player option scheduled to make over 17 Mil


NOBODY will pay him close to that, he'll play his contract out and Brand will sign long term with someone else this offseason



you think if the Suns knew he would opt out they would make this move ?


hell no, they would wait until the offseason when Marion 17 mil is off the books and sign Brand themself

Ellz... or someone with intelligence.. pleaes explain this trade to me

I understand why the Heat are doing it... but I cannot figure this out at all for why the Suns would do this..

They are trading one of the best all around players in the game for Shaq??

Like I just cant figure it out at all... its not for any type of cap room or anything right?? Cuz I thought Shaq was set to make 20 mill or so for the next few years..

He can't run the floor and doesn't fit their system at all... If he was Shaq of 2 years ago then I could understand.. but since that time hes just gotten so much worse..

I just can't understand it

Amare = PF

remember the first playoff series he ever balled in and was FILTHY against the Spurs... he averaged 34 PPG/9.5 rebounds/1.5 blocks

that was when he was a PF, hes not a center and loses alot of his game when he has to be a Center which is what hes been doing since then..... watch him on the floor when Skinner has been coming into games this year, his game is alot more smooth when he shifts back to playing @ the 4



2. Suns are forced to a half court offense in the playoffs when playing the Spurs, why not get the better personnel, remember who was the only good defender last year for the Suns consistently against the Spurs.... Kurt Thomas, not a fast break run and gun player but a good defender

3. Shaq commands attention, fu*k how old he is... Amare and Shaq in the post will free up the shooters on the Suns, Hill has been hitting the trey and Nash/Bell/Barbosa all can get wet from deep.... Shaq was a big reason for Kapono having that big season when the Heat won a ship, Suns have the shooters that will benefit



n*ggas dont really know ball are acting like this is the worst trade ever, dont expect the Suns to push Shaq heavy during the regular season, its all about the playoffs... ask the Spurs who are coasting right now but will still smack n*ggas in the face come playoff time....... while Marion was a good player he wasnt a GREAT player and wasnt great on getting his own shot or freeing up a shot off the dribble, they will miss his perimeter defense and ability to guard any position on the floor but as long as Bell can stay healthy hes a legit defender

Shaq wouldn't fit in their system but their uptempo style aint gonna work plus Nash getting old his seasons are numbered for some reason I think this might work only thing is Shaq aint worth 20mil a season.

teams can transition to a half court offense.... the Mavs did it and became a better team


one thing i see the Suns struggling with is play calling at this point since its gonna be more of a slowed down offense (i wouldnt say it will be a half court by any stretch)

Mike D'Antoni is a fu*kin AWFUL coach.... hella overrated and not good at Xs and Os

from what i heard on ESPN this morning...they were acquiring Shaq as a presence in the middle with Amare, and moving him back to PF...but still letting that fast pace offense run through Nash...whether or not it will work, we'll see when the deal is final.

the trade didn't go thru yet, but Marion might not play tonight......

Im sure the Suns looked it over, they watched some Shaq tapes an figured they could fit him in.

Diaw and Barbosa will pick up the scoring in place of Marion im sure

No....That was When he was the Old Amare Stoudemire.....

You think the difference between him putting up 25-12 in the playoffs last year to 29-11 in 04-05 (and the 34 ppg/9.5 reb vs Spurs) is because of his POSITION?

Negro please...not even you Beleive that.

yah i see what youre saying it is only for the playoffs and Shaq and Amare could be dominant but i mean i dont kno im still not sold on the trade..

it all depends on shaq responds and plays.. if he ends up getting hurt again in the playoffs or something it could go down as one of the worst trades ever..

but if he plays like he did even in 06 and they win a chip then its all good

only time will tell

i think Shaq is balling lazy cause publicly its been known him and Riley dont have a good relationship and he knows the Heat are fu*kin trash so why ball hard ?

14/8/1.3 blocks a game Shaq is putting up in his games played this year is far from trash

anyone who thinks that Shaq doesnt have ANYTHING left is trippin...... Suns are a legit contender and i still think this move makes them better


Heat dont even get cap relief from this move or become a GREAT team so i dont see why they did it....... you save 3 mil next year, big deal


Miami fans all fixated on Elton Brand and sh*t when Marion is NEVER going to turn down that 17 mil player option..... hes overpaid as sh*t
