you should never want to build a team around someone who is older than 30. yeah, miami has shaq, but actually i think wade is just as valuable or maybe even more to the heat than shaq. and shaq's contract is expiring soon, so its not as bad. miami's window of opportunity to win a championship will be the next 2-3 years, because after that, shaq will probably have become a 20-10 guy (hes only a little better than that right now) and not someone who can dominate the league anymore. and shaq is just an abnormal beast, most guys who are 35 (shaqs age in a couple of years) basically cant be counted on to lead a team to victory. kidd got a long term contract AT the age of 30 or 31, whatever it was. thats not good. will we keep marbury now till hes 30, and then sign him to a max. contract in 2007?? that would be very dumb. so all you people who propose we keep marbury while this team is very mediocre for the next few years think that he will the same golden boy to build around 3 years from now. new jersey made that mistake, we shouldnt make the same one.
