In case anyone missed it amongst the big trade news, there's a game on tonight. Yet another reason why I hate this trade. Now the Suns get to face a New Orleans team that has beaten them twice already, and this time they get to do it while shorthanded, distracted, and in general disarray. Ugh.

There has been some news trickle in that the players and coaches are excited about the deal ("rejuvinated" even). I guess we're about to find out. All signs point to Shaq being in a Suns uniform by this afternoon provided he passes the physical.

[Update 19:09MT] Shaq now officially owns a Suns uniform, but he won't actually put it on in a game until Friday at the earliest, or more likely Sunday. East Valley Tribune has the details.

We'll miss you, Shawn.
