Sharing the ball with Amare wouldn't make the team better. You and I both know that. And you and I both know that they're doing better as they feed Shaq the ball. Defense, as always, has been Phoenix's weakness. Not having shaq score 20 points in insanely efficient shooting. You run your offense through your big man. Always.
Sorry, I'm impressed with team stats and what a player does to forward those far more than any individual stat line.
All of these guys are talented, any of them can score if given the ball constantly. Scoring and stats mean nothing without the W's to back them up.
If Shaq averaged 10/5, but worked to get the rest of the team involved and got them winning, I'd be taking notice.
And yeah, I don't think Amare is such a slouch. Sharing the ball between the 2 (along the Lakers style with Bynum and Gasol) would do more for the Suns' record and for everyone on the team than watching` Shaq dunk his way to a 20/10 stat line while the Suns wallow from 6th to 8th place in the West.
That's what I'm saying. Fido, you gotta let go of your personal hatred for Shaq. Shaq's playing great. Nobody will tell you that the Suns aren't doing as well as they had because of Shaq. That's just absurd and lacks facts.
Are you saying like, Fisher > Shaq? I don't get it. It's not Shaq's stats' fault the team isn't doing well, it's just that D'Antoni is gone and Kerr is [expletive]ing up. Shaq is doing what he can to help.
In 05-06, Shaq >>>>>>>>> Kobe?
The main fact is is that Nash is out of his prime, and D is gone.
