“Remember this—I’m going to bring a championship to [Cleveland]. I promise.”

It’s official; Shaq has been traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers! Lebron will finally have someone to run defense for him. With these two big hitters on the court, 2010 is already looking a lot brighter for the Cavs. In return for Shaq, Ben Wallace and Sasha Pavlovic are headed to Phoenix. This trade puts Cleveland in a position to combat Howard of the Magic in the Eastern Conference next year, gives them the player they’ve been coveting since February, and guarentees that Lebron will renew his contract. The Cavs get O’Neal for a year, allowing them to try to lure in more all-stars in next summers free agent class. Expect to see Varejao re-signed and back on the court with these two heavy hitters next season too.

Update: Shaq learned of the trade via Twitter.
