    Looks like it's more than a rumor.

    This seems reactionary and desperate.

    I'm happy!

    Stupid move. The Lakers have an even better shot at winning the West now.

    Wow, thank you Phoenix! Steve Kerr and Chris Wallace for co-GMs of the year!

    TERRIBLE move..... The Suns are all about running past bigger teams, now they dropped a 500 pound weight in the back seat of that Porche. Good.... one less team standing the Lakers' way.

    This could work if Shaq gets back his drive to win another title - the Suns really needed a big man down low, and Shaq can still rebound and block shots. Still not worth trading away Marion IMO, but it might give the Suns a boost. I'll wait and see how he does before I rip the Suns any further.

    That's kind of the jist of it. I think Kerr is convinced that the roster they had wasn't going to win the title. Not with Bynum, Gasol, Duncan, Chandler, and even a guy like Yao in the division. So he's taking a gamble by trading away Marion for Shaq, it makes them bigger but I don't know how effective it'll be. The Suns now have exactly one player in their starting 5 who can play some resemblance of defense(Bell).

    I doubt it will screw up chemistry. The Suns chemistry was pretty bad as it is. Amare and Marion just plain don't like each other. Damn near all of Shaq's teammates like him, I think he'll be good for their chemistry actually, mostly because Marion is gone.

    Perhaps but Shaq just isn't the same player, I don't see how this offense suits him. You mention "Shaq posting up and lots of Suns cutting left and right" for that kind of offense to be effective, Shaq has to dominate the ball, in the Suns offense, Nash will always be on the ball for the majority of the Shot block.

    The Suns might be hoping Shaq redefines himself ala Wilt Chamberlain when he won a title with the Lakers, it seems unlikely though, Shaq is just too out of shape and not healthy enough to make that big of an impact. All in all its probably a gamble worth taking, their roster as it was constructed was not going to win the title.
