For so long center Shaquille O’Neal was an elite NBA center. 4 time champion, 1 time MVP and 3 time finals MVP Shaq is going to the NBA hall of fame. Shaq might not be the same as he used to be, but he can still help the eastern conference champs. Shaq won 3 championships with the Lakers, and he is betraying them by going to help their rivals. I liked him in San Antonio with Duncan, but he went to Boston with KG and Rondo. I still don’t see the Celtics going back to the finals with that roster but who thought they were going there a year ago? Rondo is a great point guard and Ray Allen is a good shooter. I also like Paul Pierce but KG and Shaq won’t give solid minutes. Sheed is old and not any good, but Big Baby might be able to play well. Jermaine O’Neal is not elite anymore and Perkins might miss half the season. I think they can get far through the playoffs with Doc Rivers, but with LA, Miami and Chicago, I don’t think banner 18 is theirs.
