Shaq trade puzzling for the Suns

This isn't to say it's impossible that O'Neal won't add something in Arizona. Maybe he'll be the physical presence they've required for so long. Still, it's hard to be a believer until there's documented evidence O'Neal can regularly get over half court before Nash leads a fast break, heaves a three-ball, tucks his hair behind his ears, secures the offensive rebound, dribbles it out, fixes his hair again, waves to his yoga teacher in the crowd, jacks up another three that swishes and nice of you to join us, Shaq! starts running back on defence.
Shaq has `something to prove'

"Let me see, they couldn't beat San Antonio with San Antonio's size, they couldn't beat New Orleans this year, they struggle with Dallas and they couldn't beat the Lakers with Bynum and now they've got Bynum and Gasol," Toronto coach Sam Mitchell said. "I wouldn't say panic but ... what they're probably looking at is they were winning 60-something games a year and can't get over the hump."

Duo dynamics

"We still have to win a lot of big games and we're still not an elite team,'' Bosh said. "Until we're an elite team, we can always be better.''

Raptors Notebook: The Shaq edition

Raptors all-star Chris Bosh was wondering the same thing everybody is wondering about this deal: Can the aging O'Neal keep up with his teammates?

"I don't see how he fits in Phoenix," Bosh said. "But I'm sure they'll make a way for him."
