All the speculation can stop now, as of today King James and Shaq Diesel are teammates.
The deal will be finalized Thursday before the draft
Cleveland send Ben Wallace and Sasha Pavlovic to Phoenix along with the 46th pick in Thursday's NBA draft and $500,000. Seems like a small asking price for a future Hall of Fame center.
If you really think about it it is not. Amare wanted to be the team's designated big man and now he gets what he wants. Shaq also wants another championship and now he might get what he wants too.
The deal was a salary relief for the Suns who get rid of Shaq's contract and pick up two exspiring contracts.
The deal is also great for both sides with center Zydrunas Ilgauskas starting to become old, slow, and weak adding Shaq to the roster gives them a dominant force in the middle and a solution to "Super Kid" Dwight Howard.
The Cav's next season will be elite contenders for the NBA championship. Maybe, we will get to resolve the great debate between Kobe and LeBron next year in the finals.
