“In my opinion, I think they’re better,” he said after practice on
Saturday. “They can run more, you’ve got Anderson Varejao who’s more of
an active body, he gets LeBron open a lot, opens up the paint for him,
so I think they’re a better team. I mean obviously Shaq could help them,
but I think they’re a better, more fast-paced team.
Thanks, Perk, for saying what a lot of us have been saying. I hope Shaq and Z play a lot for the Cavs when they both return so they Mike Brown can ignore the obvious in an effort to keep Shaq happy.
No Shaq = more athletic Cavs team. It will be interesting to see how the Celtics fare with the Cavs… and whether that second half collapse at home fuels any sort of "revenge" factor.
