Shaq Reaching Breaking Point?
 
Could Shaq be the next NBA star demanding a trade? Well, if things don't change in a hurry in Miami, look for it as a headline coming to a paper near you. ;)

So they've got to find better ways to get me the ball. It should be simple." Asked if he has expressed concerns with teammates or coach Pat Riley, O'Neal said, "I shouldn't have to [expletive] communicate that."

no team in their right mind would trade for shaq.
his contract is HUGE.
he's not dominant, he's slow, out of shape... he's done.
he'll wither away in miami and then wghen his contract is up, he'll pull a malone and go to a contender for pennies and play 15-20 a night.

The only thing reaching breaking point on Shaq is his waist belt... :D

This is the story of Shaq's life. He doesn't get enough touches. He's dominant, but at the same time, he's no longer 25-26-27. He doesn't have teh same kind of athleticism, and he's a poor free throw shooter. I'm sure if Shaq shot something better than 40% from the charity stripe, the team would have no problems feeding it into him 20-25 times a game.

Good game for the big diesel last night...and to beat the Suns with him getting significant minutes is impressive the way they would run him.
