    Shaq's inside presence alone would give the Magic the W in a best of 7 series.
    Shaq drawing double and triple teams would create too many opportunities for Orlando, regardless of Miami's speed and athleticism on the defensive end of the floor.

    LeBron would demolish Dennis Scott, D Wade will have a battle with Nick Anderson, Horace and UD would be a great matchup but, I think Shaq would 🤬 Bosh and Penny would 🤬 Chalmers, I don't know who to go for.

    Heat in 6...Nick Andersen folded in the finals against the Rockets and wasnt the same after, Dennis could shoot but Bron would lock him up..

    00-03 Shaq with this Magic team would win...94-95 Shaq i'm takin MIA

    Smh at only the starting 5 playing. Cuz Ray Allen and Birdman would play instead of HD and Chamlers

    Since its just 5 Ima go with the heat.

    LBJ would murder all them 🤬 and Penny would be a nonfactor.

    That ball pressure would be the biggest factor

    Orlando Shaq was a beast but he wasn't Lakers Shaq

    No one can guard Shaq....but no one can guard Bron either....otherwise

    Horace and Bosh cancel each other out imo
    Penny and Flash would be back and forth
    Rio and Nick I think advantage Nick
    Udonis is useless...3D's streaky ass aint gone do much either so...its really a toss up


    I think Penny and Shaq's inside outside game works better than Bron and Wade free flow style though

    so I'm going Magic in 6

    No answer for Shaq.

    uhhh yeah there is....Hack a Shaq

    He was barely a 50% free throw shooter at that time and was putting up 25ppg and 11rbs. He was nowhere near the beast he was in the Lakers.

    Magic....

    They had too much presence in the paint compared to the Heat. Shaq was a monster that was just getting started, and Horace was reliable and would put in solid work. That would have kept Miami honest and focusing on the paint, and would free up the guards on the perimeter because Bosh and Haslem wouldn't be able to handle Grant and Shaq one-on-one. And LeBron ain't driving inside on them 🤬 like that, so it's over lol

    Shaq nor Anderson can shot free throws, and Miami wouldnt double Shaq.

    No...because he is still a 3rd year player against an allstar in Bosh. Stop with the Christina Bosh Spice 🤬 , Bosh has bodied, Amare, Tyson Chandler, KG, Noah, 🤬 , Ibaka, Perkins etc in the playoffs. Stop acting like it wouldnt have been 5 Games against Indiana and 5 Games against Boston with Bosh healthy. Shaq would obviously win the battle but like I said...HACK A SHAQ.

    Magic would win... with Horace Grant and Shaq in the paint Bron and wade wont drive that often (or atleast won't be that succesful unless they call touch fouls like they do in real life) and i assume wade would try to guard penny, then when that happens nick would jus shoot over the smaller Mario, and royal started for magic not 3D... And Shaq would eat all day, he would avg 40-45 pts and 13+ reb in this series... horace and UD are equal.....Magic would win in 6

    Which era is this game being played in? If it was the 90s then Orlando wins handily. LJ his great, but at least some of his greatness comes from being able to muscle around his defenders. He wouldn't be able to do that as easily against that lineup especially when they would have more leeway to get physical without being called for the foul.

    In this era, it would be closer because I don't think the Magic would be able to stop LJ without fouling him frequently. Hell Shaq might foul out trying to stop Lebron from going to the hole.

    This approval 🤬 makes it hard to debate... @rage

    [email protected] you thinking that Hack A Shaq works when Diesel still put up 30ppg

    [email protected] you forgetting that Shaq was a 3XAllstar in his 3rd year

    [email protected] you thinking that anybody that you listed is even close to Shaq's dominance in his 3rd yr

    [email protected] you thinking that Bosh could stop or even slow down Shaq when Prime MVP Dream couldn't do so

    seriously...do you fools listen to music or do you just skim thru it
