Shaquille O'Neal just had surgery on his thumb and he will be out 6-8 weeks. There is the possibility that he wont be back for the first round of the playoffs. Does anyone think this could help the Bucks? Look at what the Chicago Bulls did to the Celtics w/o Kevin Garnett.
I am not saying that this makes them a shoe-in, but if Shaq is out, do you think The Bucks could make it interesting? If the Bucks stay in position and don't fade at the end, they will be a low seed. Would playing a Shaq-less Cavs team be better than playing Orlando Magic or the Hawks? What do you think?
