Aldrige: Nuggets should get Shaq

I personally disagree, but DA thinks that Denver will end up being Shaq's next destination (the Big Rocky?)... I've already voiced my opinion on this idea in Andrew's posts about getting Shaq but unless we could just get Shaq for the BAE or minimum I won't approve of it.

But this should make Andrew feel happy, a professional NBA analysts shares the same opinion. But it's funny b/c I doubt it would ever happen for multiple reasons and we have yet to show interest in him. 

A very good question, Adefioye. Assuming he gets realistic about the money, there still are a handful of teams that would make sense for the Big Fella. Denver has no size to speak of, and while the Nuggets' fast-break style certainly is antithetical to what O'Neal is good at at this point in his career, big is big. For the Nuggets to have any chance at competing in the West, they'll need someone who can put a body on Pau Gasol, Tim Duncan, Yao Ming and others. Boston won't have Kendrick Perkins back for several months, and maybe Jermaine O'Neal can step in and give the Celtics all they need. But one more big body wouldn't hurt. Shaq would likely be a better fit with a veteran team that wouldn't put up with any nonsense. And, now, isn't Cleveland in need of someone who can put the ball in the basket? Just saying.

And know btw, I'm not a Shaq hater... I was once one of his biggest fans, but after I saw what an asshole he was when he left Miami, I don't want Denver to face the same crap.
