Will Shaq Start Season in Shape?

And for the frequent questions about what kind of shape Shaquille O’Neal is in, there is good feeback natually from the Suns folk. It did not look too promising after O’Neal walked out of exit interview day saying he would be in Phoenix this summer to work out with the Suns staff. He ended up being spotted everywhere but the Valley this summer but his weight is said to be in line with what the Suns hoped to see him at entering camp. He scrimmaged twice this week, even making a nimble move when he was knocked down to do a fluid, backward somersault and come to his feet. He has been working out the past two years with Ultimate Fighting Championship legend Royce Gracie up to four times a week.
