Default CNNSI: Burning Questions In The East

For Raptors fans sake, I hope Aschburner is wrong.

But O'Neal is 30 now and he missed 40 games last year with a bum left knee (and a combined 44 the two previous seasons), so when he talks about his fresh start and fine health and excitement in joining the Raptors, it all sounds pleasantly ... hollow. Which it will remain until the six-time All-Star proves he can adapt to playing alongside Chris Bosh, stay healthy and find a dozen other ways to make sure he doesn't go missing north of the border.
