For the first time in the six years I've lived in South Florida, the Miami Heat are generating major buzz here. The town is rightfully intoxicated with the idea of Shaquille O'Neal clogging up the key at the American Airlines Arena next season.
Yes, his greatest days are probably behind him. But he's still an MVP-caliber big man who can tranform a franchise. And he's only 32 years old.
I myself would even consider buying a ticket to see the Heat if he were here--and that's something I've never done.
