100% done deal. Shaq passed his physical and is now officially a Phoenix Sun. This could be great for their team “IF” a lot of things go “right.” However, as a fan of basketball… the Suns/Lakers rivalry will be so full of blood I can’t even begin to think about a playoff series between these two teams. So much history and hatred… it’s going to be damn good… Welcome back to the West Shaq… Lakers ARE READY FOR YOU.
AZ Central: The Suns have completed the trade that will bring center Shaquille O’Neal to Phoenix in exchange for Shawn Marion and Marcus Banks. O’Neal passed his physical exam to the Suns’ satisfaction this afternoon and a trade call was placed with the league to make the trade official. Marion and Banks, who remained in Phoenix this afternoon, still have to pass physicals with Miami in the next 72 hours or the Heat could rescind the deal but that is highly unlikely at this stage.
“I will not let you down,” O’Neal told Nash on the phone.
