TWT FIVE REASONS THE SUNS TRADED FOR SHAQUILLE O’NEAL

1. Free copies of Kazaam!

2. Fans demanded plodding halfcourt offense in place of fast breaks.

3. Team was sick and tired of Shawn Marion’s whole well-rounded, unselfish thing.

4. Steve Nash wanted some piggyback rides.

5. Suns needed a boost in the free throw shooting department.

WEEKEND PREVIEW WHAT TO WATCH FOR IN SPORTS

Wizards at Suns

The Wizards are reeling, but Sunday’s game might be coming at a good time. It likely will take a few games for the Suns to figure out where Shaq fits in.

Pebble Beach National Pro-Am

Yes, a golf event can be interesting even without Tiger Woods. Tune in to see whether Phil Mickelson can repeat as winner at one of the most beautiful courses for fans to see on television. Or, at the very least, to see what antics Bill Murray is up to.

NFL Pro Bowl

High scores! Poor tackling! Medium effort! It’s all here in the most meaningless football game of the year!

Georgetown at Louisville

The Cardinals have been known for high-powered offense but consider that they held Marquette to 32 percent shooting earlier this week. They welcome the Hoyas tomorrow night.
