Question Option 1:Wade + Bosh Option 2: Shaq

Which one would you rather pick to surround your superstar in order to win championships. Shortcut #1 or Option #2?

Default Re: Option 1:Wade + Bosh Option 2: Shaq

I would take the most dominant force to ever play this game (that i have seen at least)...

I would take the guy that has 2 more rings, 2 more fmvps and 1 more mvp...

...and I would take the guy that alone produced overall better numbers than what Bosh/Wade combined produce today...

Wade and Bosh have a combined 3 rings (2 in one year) with one Finals MVP.

Shaq has 4 rings with three FMVPs. Should have been 5ive rings but we know what happened with one of them.

This is a pretty easy decision really.

Unless you are talking right now, than Wade and Bosh over a 41 year old Shaq. Hell, I'd take current Chris Kaman over a 41 year old Shaq.

Shaq i would take over 99.99% of players in NBA history.... maybe even 100%....

Wade is my favorite player, but I'd take Shaq over anyone. Dude would make any team a contender right now.

Would the current Bobcats be a contender?

Kemba - Henderson - MKG - Mullens - Shaq?

Nah, i want more team success... you can go with "shortcut" #1...

The difference between these "shortcuts" is that one guy was the best player in the world / best player in his team / mvp / fmvp of that team, a guy who actually CARRIED that team to a championship......... and one guy was a sidekick, who got handed 3 rings on a silverplate.... so i would assume "shortcut" #2 would have been much more easier road...

Pretty funny that Bosh's TS% in the playoffs last year is greater than Shaq's peak TS% during any title run. Too bad Shaq never mastered FTs.

Your math is off everywhere. Your entire comment was simply wrong. Bosh and Wade are good for 40 pts a game. Shaq never averaged more than 30 in the regular season. What kind of conversation do you expect to have if you simply make up facts?

So you think its harder to hack a shaq than to eliminate the combined threat Wade AND bosh pose?

Bosh & Wade in their 1 playoff championship run together averaged:

36 ppg
13 rpg

Shaq in one of his playoff championship runs averaged alone:

31 ppg
15 rpg
Shot way more efficiently...

Obviously, stats is not the entire story... Shaq was simply more impactful/dominant on both ends than Wade/Bosh are today combined, did you ever see prime Shaq play? Thats the "facts i make up"...
