Top 10 Reasons Why the Suns Traded for Shaq

I can't believe that my Phoenix Suns traded Shawn Marion and Marcus Banks for Shaq. This move makes so little sense to me that there must be more to it than meets the eye. Perhaps, the Suns will now try to move Shaq for someone else. Or maybe the Suns will trade Amare for Kobe and reunite him with Shaq. I really have no idea why this seemed like a good move to Steve Kerr. Perhaps, Mike D'antoni convinced Kerr this was a good deal so that D'antoni can get the GM position back. Because this deal makes so little sense to me I thought I should provide a top ten conspiracy theory lists for why the Suns did this:

10. Steve Kerr made a deal with Pat Riley back in his playing days that he is now fulfilling.
9. Steve Kerr made a bet with Michael Jordan that he could make a bigger mistake than Kwame at #1.
8. Kerr really misses broadcasting and figured this was as sure as way as any to return to Marv and the Czar.
7. The Suns have one plan for the playoffs. Not win a championship, but set a nice hip check on Robert Horry.
6. The Suns had an inside scoop that Shaq has been healthy all season he just has been getting back at Riley by pretending to be hurt.
5. Mike D'antoni has been watching to many mid 90's Knicks games.
4. Tim Donagy had something to do with this.
3. Jason Kidd wasn't available
2. The Suns are going to trade Shaq for Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, and Ray Allen.
1. Steve Kerr has been playing too much NBA LIVE 2001
