Shaq joins Lebron, Cavaliers



Published: Thu, June 25, 2009 @ 1:24 p.m.

CLEVELAND (AP) — LeBron and Shaq: Two of the NBA's biggest stars are now teammates.

The Cleveland Cavaliers completed a blockbuster trade Thursday, bringing superstar center Shaquille O'Neal from the Phoenix Suns to play with current MVP LeBron James, two people with knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because the trade had not been officially announced.

The Cavaliers hope they are creating a basketball duo with the drawing power of Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen, Magic Johnson and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar - or even Shaq and Kobe Bryant.

Each of those pairs won multiple NBA titles. The Cavs would settle for their first.

The Cavs are sending center Ben Wallace and swingman Sasha Pavlovic to the Suns, along with a second-round pick in the 2010 draft and $500,000 in cash, one of the people close to the deal said.

More like Loggins and Messina, or Burt and Ernie. Don't try to compare Shaq and LeBron to Michael and Scottie until Shaq and LeBron have 6 rings.
