Then your team would never contend for the championship.

And O'Neal isn't as good offensively as you're making him out to be... didn't he get flatout shut down by Kenyon Martin after game 1?

O'Neal is no slouch on D-and he has a lot better offensive game.

Big Ben cuz he can play C!
Jermaine played center until they got Brad. Plus Jermaine is biigger.

Jermaine is not as bad on defense as you are making him out to be. He led the league in blocks a year ago.

Yes, I realize this. I was replying to the person who said, he'd rather have offense over defense anyday.

Taller doesn't mean bigger... Big Ben is probably significantly stronger than Jermaine.

Big Ben is a warrior, that can change the game without scoring... he's one of very few players that can do that.

I'll admitt...
K-mart got the best of J.Oneal, But I think when they meet again, Oneal will be much more improved. I think O'neal will lead them back to the Playoff's, and YES By picking Offense over Defense will contend for the Championship, cause I think O'Neal will improve on D, making him a complete player. K-mart won that match-up, But we'll see what happens next???

I know-and I was using your logic to prove why O'Neal is the better choice-he can play defense...not to mention he is the better scorer,which no matter what you say IS important.

Martin will also be much improved, as well as much stronger (since now he won't have to guard SFs most of the year, so he's free to bulk up)
