Shaq is realistic & gives Cleveland Cavaliers fans big reason to be optimistic

CLEVELAND -- Give him whatever nickname you like, but on his first day in a Cavaliers uniform, Shaquille O'Neal was one big realist.

That tact from the team's biggest off-season addition should give the team's fans plenty of reason to be optimistic as the Cavs begin two-a-day practices Tuesday morning.

Coming off an All-Star season, most believe the future Hall of Famer O'Neal still has some gas left to help the Cavs over the postseason hump and to their first NBA championship. The biggest variable other than O'Neal's health is whether he can coexist with the resident Most Valuable Player, LeBron James.

O'Neal did his best to put that to rest at the team's annual media day Monday, putting himself and his brand-new role in stark perspective.
