More breaking news from the NBA trade front: Heat not interested in dealing Shaq. Believe Pat Riley if you wish, but some around here are spreading rumors that Shaq is obtainable and not only that, but he would put the Mavs over the top for that elusive championship. Certain voices want the Mavs to deal their rights to Keith Van Horn for The Diesel. Surely, this is part of Riley's strategic plan to ultimately trade The Big Aristotle to the Mavs. Surely.
