Cavalier Catch-Up

So as the season is finally closing in and training camp is right around the corner, the Cavalier summer has been full of ups and downs and plenty of surprises. There is no surprise that the latest news with the Cavaliers was by the name of Shaquille O’Neal.

Shaq just can’t leave go a summer without having some type of limelight over his glistening bald head. He can’t just leave a team peacefully anymore, he leaves a team and he rips a team.

The latest? Shaq took a shot at his former team, the Cleveland Cavaliers. Talking with John Reid of the Times Picatune, O’Neal stated that he joined Boston because of how unselfish they are.

“I like that they play together and nobody really worries about shots, ” O’Neal said. “When I was with Cleveland, guys who couldn’t even play were worried about shots. Why was Mo (Williams) taking 15 shots, and I’m only taking four? If LeBron takes 20 shots, that’s cool.”

How dare Shaq rip the Cavaliers like that? However, I think the real question should be; Why does it matter what Shaq thinks? While I saw this all over the internet on September 1st (I know I’m behind) I was tweeting and thinking to myself how dare him? But really, why does it truly matter what comes out of that man’s mouth?

This coming from a guy who once stated that he found basketball nirvana last season in Cleveland, and also stated that the Cavs were the best team he had ever been on. He also talked about how great the team chemistry was and how wonderful the locker room was.

–On other news, current Antawn Jamison was in Paris this past weekend for the “NBA 5 United” basketball tournament organized by Adidas. Jamison expressed how disappointed he was coming up short in the playoffs. “It was difficult, it was really difficult”. Jamison also went on to say “it was a blow” when asked about former Cavalier and teammate LeBron James on his “decision” to take his talents to South Beach.

— Former Cavalier Guard Delonte West also signed with a former team. Unfortunately it was not the Cavs but the Boston Celtics. He will fit in nicely alongside Rondo and Allen in the backcourt. I wish him nothing but the best as I loved in Cleveland.

Until next time Cavalier fans,

Jake Dorow (Keep Your Heads Up)
