but I just had to ask this question on the main board. Is Shaq in decline skill wise? If you ask me over the last month or so Shaq has looked average IMO. I remember this guy used to pump fear in teams hearts now it seems as if he's just another guy on the court.There have been several games the last month were I've hardly noticed him. BTW, their season will be over in the next series.Spurs 4-1.This Laker team is not good at all.Don't let that four HOF nonsense fool ya.Only one of em' is still playing at a HOF level(Kobe).
