I have noticed that Shaq (among some other big names too) is still teamless. This comes as a bit of a shock to me. Not a big shock but one nevertheless. So, my wheels started turning and I thought “what if we could bring him to Utah.” Not sure he would even consider coming here, let alone for less money. Despite the negatives (and I know there are a few), I would like to focus on some possitives: He could be a mentor for Fes. Maybe teach the kid what it means to be a bruiser in the post. He is a grizzled veteran that actually has a ring. He might provide some leadership. That one I’m not so sure about but it might happen. If he could know his role and maybe change his attitude a bit he could be a great help, and then we would have our big man defending the key.
This is pure speculation. I am aware of some of the negatives of bringing him here (old, free throws, big head, expensive, etc). I’m not saying that it would be a good idea either. I know he hasn’t had a lot of success since he left LA. But I want to throw it out there and get some thoughts on whether a Shaq Experiment here in Utah would be worth it. Any thoughts on Shaq?
