Apparently Shaq has just recently been traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers. For the Cav’s this is a great pickup and they will now have one of the most famous players and the currently most famous player in the NBA on their roster. There was much skepticism about LeBron going to New York around the time of the playoffs, but now it’s settled, he’ll be staying in Cleveland if anyone truly doubted that. This new addition says that Ilgauskas will head to the bench but who really cares when you’ve got Shaq and Lebron tearing it up. The Phoenix Suns are reportedly getting Ben Wallace, Sasha Pavlovic the 46th pick in the draft and $500,000 from Cleveland, so it looks like the Suns are getting a purely financial deal.
With Shaq in the house Cleveland will have another legitimate run at the Finals and will probably face Orlando in the Eastern Conf Championship again unless KG comes back strong with the Celtics.
Supposedly Shaq found out about his trade just the other day through twitter, how funny is that?
