Gilbert's latest is a must-read

I like reading Gil's blog because it's funny and controversial, but his latest post is smart and insightful too. It's must reading.

His take on Shaq going to the Suns is a lot more positive than most I've seen, and he offers some fairly convincing reasoning for his optimism (although I'm still not sure I agree).

Here's his take on the Heat side of the deal:  

Just like Dwyane Wade said, Shaquille helped his career. In turn, all he can do is be grateful. What's funny is after Shaq left a team in the past, no other players said what Dwyane Wade said. He really said it, "He's done a lot for me, I'm going to miss the big fella. Thank you, big fella." That's all the respect Shaq could ever want. You know, a player like him once in a while just wants somebody to say, "Thank you" once in a while. The other two stars, Penny (my man) and Bryant never said that.

Great stuff.

Gil says LA "hi-jacked" Paul Gasol from Memphis, "That should be a crime. You don't give away Pau Gasol for Kwame Brown and a rookie. I don't care what's out there, you can get more than that. You gave away a $100 bill and you got back two nickels and a dime."

He continues:

It seems like a pretty stupid move by Chris Wallace. No offense, I don't know him personally, but you don't give away Pau Gasol for what they got back. I mean, Chicago wanted Pau Gasol. They would have given something back in return. I mean, something. Ladies and gentlemen, they have Darko and Kwame at the four and the five. That's all I'm going to say.

His take on Jose Calderon as an All-Star snub is worth reading too. Gotta love Gil.
