Steve Kerr: Shaq Trade Was a Success

Kerr said the trade was a success and delivered many of the desired results — even if beating the Spurs in the first round wasn’t one of them.

“Shaq brought an awful lot to our team. He was terrific,” Kerr said.

“He played very well and added a totally different dimension. (Coach Mike D’Antoni) and I are on the same page in terms of Shaq, the impact he’s made and what he can make in the next couple of years.

“We struggled for the first couple of weeks and then we really started to play well. I thought Mike did a good job of making that adjustment. [East Valley Tribune]
