Yeah, I thought it was fairly obvious.  Shaq was a shell of his former self by the time he arrived in Boston.

And he would've gotten one if he had stayed healthy.

Yep.

That starting lineup of RR+RA+PP+KG+SO was freaking dominant ... until his achilles gave out.

Sigh ...

Duh - he was ring chasing in Cleveland the year too, until KG exposed him 200x in a row in the playoffs.

Yup. Bums me out to think of how much more successful that era could've (and likely would've) been if not for KG's knee, Perk's knee, and Shaq's Achilles. I figure at least 3 titles total, maybe 4.
