An NBA Hanger On?

by on February 20, 2008 updated February 20, 2008

 In any sport there are some guys who just don’t want to let go. It’s an understandable thing. Who would want to give up the pay and prestige of playing professional sports? Now Shaq has headed to the Phoenix Suns, hoping to rekindle some NBA magic with a new team. The fact that’s he’s obviously getting older, has had problems with injuries the last few years, and may not be a perfect fit for thier running system, has some fans quaestioning whether he should have retired.

Even Phil Jackson has gotten into the act, saying O’ Neals role is now “taking the ball out of bounds and waiting for the other team to get back.” Ouch.

Good move on the Suns part or not? Time will tell.
