Shaquille O'Neal gave fans a preview of what he might be like as an NBA analyst yesterday in an answer to a question about the Miami Heat. Shaq referred to the Heat as posessing a "Big 2," conveniently omitting Chris Bosh from the ranks of Heat superstars. Bosh-bashing is somewhat passe these days in NBA circles, especially considering that he performed reasonably well during the NBA Finals, but Shaq's flavor of criticism-by-omission is a bit of a twist -- he doesn't even consider Bosh in the conversation. What's your take?
Did Shaq have a point?
The Heat were billed as the Big Three, but how accurate is that label after their first season as a unit?
Bosh on your team?
Rumors about Bosh not finishing out his contract with the Heat came up from time to time during the 2010-11 regular season. Would you take a chance on him thriving outside of Miami?
Champs with Bosh?
LeBron James promised that the new-look Heat would win multiple championships, but so far, this prediction looks premature.
Shaq's critique was fairly gentle by media standards, but it's not a new thing to pile on Chris Bosh.
