Rumors are flying that there is an imminent trade between Shaquille O’Neal of the Miami Heat and Shawn Marion of the Phoenix Suns. I pray that it is what it is…just rumors.
First of all, Suns owner Robert Sarver has some explaining to do. Just two weeks ago he said of the Suns’ core players:
“They are just flat-out not getting traded,” Sarver said. “We are going to play the season with our core. They deserve another chance to win a championship.”
Damn straight, so you’re gonna go back on your word now Sarver?
Marion is always the center of trade talks, and this time, it involves Marcus Banks as well. I just don’t understand why the Suns are willing to trade Marion and Banks for an aging Shaq. Oh yeah, let’s not forget that he’s also injured and is due to have another MRI to determine the extent of his injury.
Shaquille O’Neal will turn 36 this year. He’s 7’1″ and weighs 325 pounds. Ya gonna be able to keep up with the Suns’ running game?
If this trade goes through…it’s just bad bad news for the Suns. I, for one, will be one pissed off Suns fan.
