Should O'Neal return to All-Star form the Raptors' upside is equally boundless. I'm told he's in excellent shape while joining a title contender is certain to boost his dwindling spirit.
i smiled at the excellent shape part, then laughed at the title contender part...
i'm hoping his knee is 100%, if so, we are on our way up baby!
i had JO on my fantasy team last year, and i wanted to pull my hair out cause he was so often-injured... the last straw was when he 'packed it in' for the remainder of the season with about 2 months to go.
i remembering them saying something like, "the pacers have no shot making the playoffs, so o'neal is going to rest his knee and get healthy again rather than push himself."
at the time i was pissed! but now i'm so happy. he took alot of time off to rest his knee and get back 100%, this could be HUGE trade for us if he really is back to his normal healthy self.
