Wow! This brother shuffles around the courts these days more than the starting line-up(s) he’s been a part of the last 17 years on the court. I admit I haven’t been following the sports well enough lately because of all the new jacks on the courts and fields. I didn’t even realize that Shaq wasn’t in Miami anymore.
The players have changed so much from the time of Earl the Pearl, George “The Iceman” Gervin, Patrick Ewing, Kareem Abdul-Jabar, Dr. J., Michael Jordan, Charles Barkley, shall I go on? Makes you feel as nostalgic as remembering the beginning of L’il Michael Jackson’s career right? And with the span of Shaq’s career, he’s had the unique pleasure of being on the court with the old and new school.
Well, Shaq must be on the end of his career because he’s left the Magic for the Lakers to go to the Heat then to the Suns, and now is on his way to the Cavaliers. I ask again, what’s up with the shuffle…and for Ben Wallace? And Ben Wallace has seen his share of teams as well. Phoenix will be his fourth team. How did Shaq and his estranged wife come up with Cleveland as a locale? It was just yesterday they were fighting over leaving L.A. for Miami.
