He's extra motivated this year, so he says, so it'll only take 10 games.

maybe last years Shaq...
but i think O'neal has a chip on his shoulder this season and is coming out swinging.
a motivated shaq is tres dangerous.
he's motivated this season and will show up from day 1.
when the cavs are sitting pretty in 1st and have nothing to worry about, i'm sure he'll take a break, but he'll want to show up from day one, and prove the naysayers wrong. he's coming out ball bustin' this season. just watch.

How do you know Shaq won't be ready and in shape for game one?
He is playing with Labron and he has reported early to camp and is
training with Labron James. He wants to be the first to get his 5th
ring before Kobe. History tells us that he gets better as the season
goes on but if hes in shape from the start and contributes; Cleveland
will be scary.

How many times has Shaq come into a season saying he's motivated? Shit, that guys says that same song and dance every year. Like Jeff said, usually it takes him until Christmas to get into full game shape, but I think because he's extra motivated, it won't take him as long, but he won't be in full game shape for game 1.

Don't mean to be a stickler, but it's Lebron James. I think you're really trying to ghetto-fy this dude's name (Labron)

That's the epitome of laziness. Just go out and get the candy yourself. I know if I was your sister, I'd give you a bag of sweet fuck all.
You're still in elementary school. Go out and get yours. I wish I could go out trick-or-treating.

With all the back to backs, I think the addition of Jack is that much more of a coup. Him and Rasho and Evans are going to get plenty of burn, and help keep everyone fresh overall. They need to make sure they get a solid starting lineup that pushes the lead into double digits early, and hopefully stretches it further in the 3rd quarters, so that minutes can be kept down for guys like Bosh and Calderon during some of those busy stretches.

well stated LX, i think that as the season goes on, the value of some of these deals will come clear.. I really like the balance we present on both the first and second line... i hope we don't get stuck on that discussion again, this season we should see less fall off for sure... especially from the back court... the front needs POB to step up and contribute some serious minutes down the road... i am getting excited about this season...
