2nd day....well I ended up breaking my hand so typing these are going to take a lot longer...great.

Well I would like to see who likes Shaq with the Suns. From what games I got to see the Suns couldn't even break 100 points. I mean cmon 80? Their offense has taken a big step back wouldn't you think?

But their defense has definitely improved. I mean how do you beat the Celtics with only 80? Amazing i know.

And in other news...............I got nothin CYA

Yea I can definetly see what your saying.  Phoenix has a ton of trouble with Shaq going man-to-man..he just isn't quick enough, but their interior post defence has greatly improved. Shaq and Amare are making it tough on anyone in the paint, and because of that the Suns are getting the rebounds a lot more. That is what they needed the most this year. 

Hey have fun with your Lakers. they seem to be doin well.

I'm not sold if the defense will be better with Shaq. Yes, beating BOS and holding them to 77 is impressive, but i just dont see it. I am a Shaq fan, i'm just not convinced that he is the answer for this team. He needs to drop some weight to get down on defense better and also lighten the load for his aching body, but will he do that at this point in his career??
