Shaqalicious nets a $100,000,000 contract for 5 years with Miami. Is he worth it? 'Course! He's Shaq!

I don't think anyone here would question signing the most dominant player in the game to such a fat contract. But this is a five year deal. What about 2-3 years from now when Shaq's body starts slowing down? When he's playing 55-60 games a season? I'm not saying the Heat made a mistake - not at all. They're playing to win now and if that means getting burned on salary cap a couple years down the line, so be it. But still. Shaq isn't getting any better. In a couple years this deal could really hurt them.
