If Dwight had Shaq's size, he would be the absolute most dominant player ever. Shaq (and Jordan and Lebron) share one common trait...they are all more physically gifted than the players at their position. They are all NOT, however, the most skilled players at their position. Natural size/athleticism is not earned, it is inborn. To brag or take credit for it is like bragging about eye color or penis size..nothing was done to deserve it or earn it, and nothing can be said to equate it with work ethic or merit. This is precisely why players like Aaron Rodgers or Kobe Bryant are more admirable than players like Andrew Bynum or LeBron James. Being the most physically gifted is a product of luck/good fortune. There is no work ethic or merit involved...that is primarily why I favor Kobe over every other player in the league.
The End is nigh. Time for a total Cut and Shuffle. Kobe contract was a mistake...time to avoid making more. The future is here, whether we want it to be or not. An era is over, but for the death rattle, and it's time for the cycle to begin anew. Growth and change are scary and painful, but alas...nothing worth achieving comes easily.
