At least that's what his mission will be....Dwyane Wade has saved shaq many times this season, so its up to the big aristotle to put this team on his back, since D-Wade may not be able to go and if he can go, he will probably not be 100 percent.....
Wade, who left Thursday's Eastern Conference finals game with a strained rib muscle, could not practice Friday, and his status for tonight's Game 6 in Detroit is in doubt. The Heat leads the best-of-7 series 3-2.
Privately, players were less confident. Wade did not speak with reporters, and coach Stan Van Gundy gave no definitive word about his availability. But Wade told teammates he felt no better than he had the previous night.
Strained rib muscles can cause sharp pains from even small movements like laughing, said Dr. Kevin Kessler, a Fort Lauderdale sports medicine specialist.
O'Neal, who is playing with a bruised right thigh, did not sound worried Friday.
"If Dwyane plays or doesn't play, we're still going to Shaq you to death," O'Neal promised.
