Actually, I think most Cavs fans wanted Shaq so he could contain guys like Dwight and Bynum. They were expecting to get something like 14 points and 8-9 rebounds, too, but that wasn't the primary reason why he was brought in. Shaq is one of my favorite players, though, and I definitely expected more this year.
