It's still almost impossible to believe. The Lakers have traded Shaq? For real?

The Washington Post broke the news first, that the Lakers and Miami Heat have agreed to a trade which will send Shaq to South Beach for Lamar Odom, Caron Butler, Brian Grant, and a future draft pick. The deal is still pending league approval.

Before we break down this deal, LAist would like to take the opportunity to berate both Shaq and Kobe for their sheer pettiness.
