On Thursday, the day of the NBA draft, two blockbuster trades were made in the Eastern Confrence. The Cavaliers acquired Shaquille O’Neal from the Phoenix Suns for Ben Wallace, Sasha Pavlovic, a 2010 second round pick and cash considerations. The other major swap made on draft day was the Orlando Magic sending Rafer Alston, Courtney Lee, and Tony Battie to the New Jersey Nets for Vince Carter and Ryan Anderson.
Orlando held a press confrence on Thursday to introduce the newly acquired Vince Carter to the media. Since the trade on Thursday Carter has been very vocal about joining his new teammates and in search for an NBA championship. On the other hand, Cavalier fans are seeing the exact opposite from O’Neal. Shaq had a brief interview Thursday night during the NBA draft, other than that the Big Diesel has been very quiet. O’Neal’s twitter account has even been on hiatus since Thursday. The question that all Cavs fans are asking, where’s Shaq?
