Shaq to the Suns

And yet, this is STILL better than "Shaq-Fu"

OK, what the fuck.

This is the second giant to get moved in the past two weeks (see: Lakers), and the Bulls aren't involved at all. Is there some sort of anti-Chicago conspiracy going on in the sporting world? Last I checked, we have TWO capable centers, both healthy. Not only that, but Ben Wallace is old, overrated, and also on a huge contract -- just like Shaq.

Shaqueef was supposed to be out for the rest of the year with hip issues, and the Suns like to run a lot. I can't imagine this is going to turn out well. I'm sure the Bulls would kill for a player like Marion -- especially if it would get rid of Wallace. That's like a double bonus. Hell, we'll even throw in Bennie the Bull as a sex slave along with a few Matadors -- no issues here.

Didn't make any sense for the Bulls to be targeting either Shaq or Marion...Shaq b/c he's old and sucks and Marion because he's not a go-to guy, he's a very complimentary player to the rest of his team - but the Bulls are already full of players like that. They need a superstar

Screw Shaq -- I mean the Bulls dumping Wallace (and maybe another body) for Marion. I'm not saying that Marion is of Steve Nash quality (with the ability to make everyone AROUND him a superstar), but he could certainly improve the team over Wallace and his piss-poor D.

I agree with Ba.

The only thing Wallace does well is play D. We dont need Marion (read: mini-deng). Joe Smith is better on O but useless on D.

We need a stud. I'm more upset that we didn't get Gasol- we should have dealt Bogo and Tyrus for him 3 months ago.

Gordon and Wallace for T-Mac is the only real trade left for this season. One part of me would like that trade, the other doesn't for the fact he never fucking plays.

You guys are way underestimating Marion. He is one of the best all around players in the league. John Paxson should be fired.
