Suns tow Shaq Diesel into Phoenix

If the Western Conference wasn’t interesting enough, the Big Diesel is coming back. The Suns have acquired Shaquille O’Neal from the Heat in exchange for Shawn Marion and Marcus Banks.

Great move Phoenix! Hurry up and get back on those phones – you still have time before the trade deadline. Maybe you can trade Steve Nash for Brian Scalabrine. Or maybe you can cut Amare Stoudemire to clear a roster spot for Sam Bowie.

It’s hard to imagine a scenario in which Phoenix is improved by this trade. Let’s face it – Shaq is no longer Shaq, and even though Shawn Marion had asked for a trade, at least he had two functioning hips.
