    Shaquille O’Neal really never struck me as the RVing type. But if your RV is the size of Hearst Castle, and hard to miss driving down the highway thanks to a not-too-subtle paint job, then maybe. Well, that’s just what Shaq got from the Boston Celtics, according to CSN New England. Shaq also put up…

    Seven Los Angeles gang members may have committed kidnapping and assault in Shaquille O’Neal’s name, but he said he had no knowledge of it. The prosecutors agree and Shaq will face no charges in the case (the victim allegedly thought Shaq was behind it). Shaq was not named in the criminal complaint, according to the…

    You didn’t expect Shaquille O’Neal to totally shut the door, did you? He left it open a crack when talking with our man A. Sherrod Blakely with CSN New England in a one-on-one after his farewell press conference Friday. So Shaq, could you make a comeback? “Probably not,” O’Neal told Comcast SportsNet moments after announcing…

    Boston Celtics v Phoenix Suns

    Shaquille O’Neal said goodbye to the NBA in the way we should all remember him, with a laugh and a smile. He started his official retirement press conference — broadcast live on NBA TV — by somebody handing him a cell phone, saying a few words, then telling the media it was the Knicks asking…

  7. Shaq retires and will be missed

    Jun 1, 2011, 5:07 PM EDT

    O'NEAL

    I’m going to miss having Shaquille O’Neal around the NBA. It’s the end of an era — Kyrie Irving, the top pick in this coming draft, was born the year Shaq entered the league. But it feels like more than that. I’ll miss him in part because he was a reminder that this is a…

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics - Game Three

    UPDATE 4:38 pm: Shaq spoke with Jackie McMullin of ESPN Boston and explained his decision.

  9. Shaq’s mom thinks he might return to Celtics next year

    May 19, 2011, 10:10 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Phoenix Suns

    About that plan for Shaquille O’Neal to retire…. It’s been the assumption in Boston that Shaq would retire and GM Danny Ainge said on his radio show recently he basically expects it. But Ainge and the Celtics signed Shaq to a two-year deal with the player having the option for the second year. It’s Shaq’s…

  11. Shaq may never play in the NBA again. And that’s sad.

    2009 NBA All-Star Game

    We’re going to miss Shaquille O’Neal. Not the Shaq of this season, or even the last several. Not the guy who has played just 17 minutes since Feb. 1 because even that little time aggravates his leg injuries. That is a shell of the former player, a guy who at his peak was one of…

    Desperate times call for desperate measures. And right now there is no desperate measure quite like Shaquille O’Neal. Boston coach Doc Rivers told the media today that Shaq would be a go in Game 3 Saturday at the Boston Garden, tweets A. Sherrod Blakely at CSN New England. Rivers also said that the rest of…

    Shaquille O’Neal practiced with the Boston Celtics Thursday and Friday. He’ll play against the Miami Heat. At some point in the series. Probably. Yes, I know, pretty vague. But that’s what the Celtics have left us with. CSN New England gives us the quotes from Doc Rivers himself. “He just did a little bit yesterday,”…

    Finally there are no more delays, no more reasons to put it off, Shaquille O’Neal is going to practice with the Boston Celtics on Friday, according to a tweet from Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe. Two days before the first game against the Heat. And then…. Depends on how it goes. Doc Rivers was…

    Now we return to Shaq Watch 2011… and still no sign of the big man. He did not practice Wednesday and will not Thursday according to A. Sherrod Blakely of CSN New England on twitter. That does leave open the chance that he practices on Friday and will be ready to go Sunday, but do…

    Boston Celtics v Phoenix Suns

    They clearly don’t need him against New York — Boston is up 3-0 in the series — but the plans to have Shaquille O’Neal back continues to be pushed back. Doc Rivers has ruled Shaq out for Game 4 at Madison Square Garden Sunday, according to ESPN Boston. “He’s not playing [Sunday],” said Rivers. “We…

    Injured Boston Celtics O'Neal talks to teammate Allen during the first quarter of Game 1 of their NBA Eastern Conference playoff series against the New York Knicks in Boston

    Welcome back to Shaq Watch 2011… Shaquille O’Neal has traveled with the team, he is in New York where maybe the bright lights will inspire him. But not for Game 3 Friday. He is out for that. Our man A. Sherrod Blakely from Comcast New England caught up with Shaq, but he wasn’t in the…

    UPDATE 3:42 pm: From the Department of Redundancy Department, we have an update on our update: Shaq traveled with the team to New York, according to A. Sherrod Blakely of CSN New England.

  21. Shaq out for Game 2 of Celtcs vs. Knicks series

    Apr 18, 2011, 3:50 PM EDT

    Shaq injured

    This isn’t a shock — the Celtics said he was out “indefinitely” and that usually means more than one game — but we thought we’d pass along the news: Shaquille O’Neal did not practice with the Celtics Monday and it out for sure for Tuesday’s Game 2, according to a tweet from A. Sherrod Blakely…

  22. Shaq out “indefinitely” for Boston

    Apr 16, 2011, 2:03 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Phoenix Suns

    One of the keys to Boston being in this in June — one of the reasons that Kendrick Perkins could be traded — was that Shaquille O’Neal could do the job in the middle. The Celtics will not have Shaq for game one against New York and maybe longer, Doc Rivers and Danny Ainge told…

  25. Delonte West injured again, Shaq set for playoffs return

    Apr 12, 2011, 11:41 AM EDT

    Delonte West, Rajon Rondo

    Is there a M*A*S*H* unit that follows the Celtics around? It just seems it would be cost efficient at this point. Boston picked up another injury Monday, but just one so it may be under their daily quota. This time it was Delonte West spraining his ankle, reports A. Sherrod Blakely at CSN New England.…
