The announcement came as a surprise, but only because it was kept so quiet that no one suspected anything was amiss following the victory over the Wizards. The return of Shaquille O'Neal after 18 games overshadowed all else, including a season-high 41 points from Dwyane Wade. Interestingly enough, though, O'Neal didn't seem all too pleased following the game.
