know what I know now, I would of course choose Shaq , you cannot take away the memory of the demonation of all that stood against him, because we cannot know what Yao well be like in 5 years, this is a biased question. remember Shaq used to get balled up by Hakeem and Patrick.

For now, Shaq. Long term investment? I place Yao on the team any day -- he is a smarter player with the ability to pull his team together. Shaq relies heavily on power and aggression; he is an unstoppable monster. Take those two away, his skills, his fundamentals, are quite average.

Yao, on the other hand, is one the best post players I have seen in years! His double fakes and spins are incredible to behold. His jumps and hooks remind me a ballet dancer in flight -- they ooze with finesse. Not to mention, Yao is accurate even away from the rim. His weakness, ironically, is his ability to drive, his lack of vigor and power.

Shaq is definitely the better player, but my heart would have picked Yao.
