  • Big Ben did a good job on Shaq defensively, including his famous block. Shaq had a big game, but most of his points came without Wallace on him.

    what logic is they can put Bill Walton in the hall of fame while, denying Ben Wallace entrance, OK, Bill got more friends on the committee, Ben Wallace scored more career pts, three times as many rebs than Walton

    Shaq is not as strong as his build portrays. Of course he is hella strong being that size but I'm saying is if Wallace could push him around I have no doubt Wilt would ragdoll him.

      YouGotOwned Owned, first of all lets look at their career stats instead of cherry picking. Lebron James and Dwayne Wade are both still averaging ahead of Harden. That's not to say that Harden can't get there, but as for now he is behind. Let me ask you something. How many NBA All-Defensive teams has Harden been a part of? I'll let you look that one up. I'm not even a fan of either James or Wade but I'm not stupid, you have to know that some people just are not good at defense.

    • YouGotOwned Owned
      YouGotOwned Owned 2 years ago

      The last 2 seasons his defense during the regular season is better than Lebron James and Dwayne Wade. He has more steals and blocks than the both of them. You have just been owned. Now go cry in a corner. Now this is where you ignore actual stats because I just made you realize you know NOTHING about basketball. How does it feel to get owned? How long did I make you cry?

      +Lars Wölk jawohl du bist Deutscher. hätte auch gewundert mit den Namen Wölk und Lars. Schade um das Deutsche Team 2016 Rio. Nowitzki wäre das letzte mal dabei gewesen, wäre sicher eine gute Abschiedsparty. jetzt sind Mando Lo und Dennis Schröder noch zu sehen. gestern war Columbia gegen Yale. muss mal schauen. Kraftraum bei Big Ben wie bei DRodman. force room weight. Selbst der Vergleich Yao als Rookie 2002 und am Ende 2008 9 war ein Resultat des Kraftraumes. Es ist eben doch kein Folterkammer. In der NFL ist der Kraftraum vielleicht noch wichtiger. Schade eigentlich dass nur in Amerika Football und Basketball in Kombi trainiert wird, weder in Osteuropa noch in Deutschland fliegt das Ei. Ei von Wilson und Bas von Spalding wäre sicher im Training und Spielentwicklung auch eine Bereicherung in Europa. Die Gewichte und das Kraftraumtraining macht für Football und Basketball doppelt Spaß und Effizient auch für Baseball.

      +Nan Lei Was hat das denn jetzt mit Ben Wallace zu tun? ^^ I think you missed the point, the conversation was about Wallace and what force he would have been if he was taller. Sure, I get your point. Maybe Shaq was the much more loveable one, who motivated his teammates and always had very good games. But Wallace had other "mental skills", his presence made the whole defence stronger and he fighted for every rebound and every shot contest. No question, Shaq was a machine, a guy you proberly wont ever see again, but he had all requirements to be that dominant. A very tall body with much mass and muscles. This alone wont give you the brightest future, you have to work hard still obviously. But Wallace wasn't that tall, had mad muscles but didn't have that much mass. And he still was one of the greatest defenders of all time. And you can tell, he trained very hard.

    Shaq was #2 in MVP voting a year before and if it wasnt for Wade`s TO in 4th quarter on game 7 against this Pistons Heat would face Spurs in 2005 Finals. It would have been awesome as well. Shaq still had it on Miami. He declined after he left Heat. Big Ben was a beast on D.

      Mr. Entringer shaq had it for one year with the Miami heat. He was declining in 2006, he had a horrible final series against Dallas. Wade carried him to his 4th ring period. Shaq average 13 in that finals. In 2007-08 he was clearly gone. He had one good year in Miami and he himself said he had motivation to get in shape because he was mad that the lakers traded him.

      Wade was 2-0 against the Wizards without Shaq. Shaq was 0-1 against the Pistons without Wade. *HUGE* difference. Shaquille O'Neal was most certainly the best player on the team during the 04-05 season, hence coming in 2nd in a very close MVP race.

      dxburner222 i feel bad for that squad. Malone was injured and shaq and kobe basically just want things to be over with. I wish shaq just went second fiddle to kobe starting 2004 but he instead rocked the boat further. Shaq went on to form a great duo with wade. Kobe won 2 more rings but found out too late that the talent he and shaq had could have given them couple more rings.
