NWSB Insider and Portland Trail Blazers Blogger breaks down whether or not PDX should have mutual interest in signing Jermaine O’Neal during the 2013 NBA offseason. According to reports, O’Neal is interested in returning to the city where he began his career. Portland traded O’Neal just four years into a career for Dale Davis, who was supposed to help stop Shaquille O’Neal out West. Now the Blazers need a mentor to Meyers Leonard.
What a week for Shaquille O’Neal. He’s basically saying our Victoria BC boy Steve Nash doesn’t deserve two NBA MVP awards. In 2004-05, Nash took a 29 win team from the season before, and with a majority of the same key players as the year prior (minus Stephon Marbury), turned that squad into a 62 win team and the best regular season record in the NBA. Nash’s second MVP came as a bigger surprise to many around the league.
