Shaq is soo underrated now. He is still one of the better players in the league.

Still not a very high IQ statement. Shaq may still be a top 10 center in the league, but he is not in Amare's league. Probably just another ruse by Charles to insult players (Amare and Nash in this case). The former great is starting to come off as childish honestly.

I hate how Ernie said it's a match up of two HOF point guards. Nash isn't a HOF point guard.

Centers who play consistently at a high level (higher than Shaq).

-Dwight Howard
-Yao Ming
-Andreas
-Big Z (Most underrated player in the league)
-Al Jefferson
-Nene
-Okafor
-Horford

of course but I said "when he is on his game". Old Shaq is not as consistent anymore.

Good point, if anything I think people overrate Shaq nowadays however. People remember him from old and every time he has a good game they get overexcited.

is that why Dampier made him look washed up? Damp is normally a 5/7/0.5/1 guy and he put 9/14/3/3 om fat Snaq while holding him to 4/5/2/1/1.

Dampier taking you on the boards... not too embarrassing. Dampier taking you on points? Embarrassing. Nearly doubling every single important stat and shutting down your offense? Nut shot.

If he makes it, then Hardaway, KJ, and GP HAVE TO MAKE IT, because he's not better than those players.

He will be first ballot


Shaq is probably a better rebounder, defender, passer and has a higher IQ than Amare. So Charles obviously is basing his argument on shaq being more 'well rounded'.

Obviously Amare is a better scorer. So much better that it mostly overrides his deficiencies.
