Well, part of that was due to an era where Shaq (or any player admittedly) could get away with committing an offensive foul every time he had the ball. Forcing a defender off their established position is charging, and Shaq did it every time he backed up a defender with that giant ass of his. It required a Vlade Divac-esque flop for it to be called (and even then it wasn't a guarantee).

That said, he would have been just as nightmarish, just in a different way, if he didn't have that move in his arsenal. His passing, court vision, and movement for a guy that size was so phenomenal that it really wouldn't have mattered much.

Drummond's passing has been impressive. His maturation has been intriguing. I'm very curious to see how they handle the back to back games with GS and Boston coming up this week.

I missed the game against GS. Drummond and Reggie couldn't get anything going today against Boston.

Back on a 2 game win streak. I like Kennard but SVG f’ed up royally in passing on Donovan Mitchell. That kid was a stud at Louisville. Kennard is more of a complimentary piece rather than a potential star. Mitchell has I way more upside. He’s small for a NBA shooting guard but he’s got scoring in spades
