Mike Brown still can’t believe he is coaching two superstars. LeBron James and Shaquille O’Neal have practiced together for only couple days. Despite the small sample size, Mo Williams has seen enough to expect the 7-foot-1 O’Neal will blend nicely with James. The Cavaliers hope O’Neal is the answer to the team’s post problems after Cleveland won a franchise-best 66 games during the regular season, but failed to get past Orlando and Dwight Howard in the Eastern Conference finals. “It’s a little weird seeing two of the best out on the floor at the same time, but they’re both very good guys first of all,” Brown said. “Both have great personalities and both want to win. They seem like they fit. They seem like they’ve been together for a while. It’s been entertaining to say the least.” The Cavs’ locker room was even shuffled to be able to give O’Neal and James, who get a great deal of media attention, enough space without bothering teammates. James asked if he called friend Wade or Kobe or any of O’Neal’s former teammates said “He’s going to be a teammate,” James said. “It’s not like I’m adopting a child.” See their first photos on Cavaliers uniforms from NBA’s 2009-2010 Media Day. Btw… LBJ sported the Zoom Soldier III instead of the upcoming Air Max LeBron VII.
