    What, you didn’t expect Celtics centers to start getting healthy, did you? Doc Rivers Monday told WEEI not to be expecting Jermaine O’Neal, one of this summer’s free agent acquisitions in Boston, back for a little while. “Two, three weeks would be a guestimate,” Doc Rivers said Monday. “We don’t know exactly. We’re going through…

    Shaquille O’Neal went through morning shoot around with the Boston Celtics and Doc Rivers said after practice there is a “good chance” he will to play Thursday night in a marquee showdown against Miami. Jermaine O’Neal did not go through anything with the team this morning. So while both O’Neals are listed as game time…

    Jermaine O’Neal played 21 minutes for the Celtics in their win over the Thunder. He pulled down nine boards but shot just 1-for-5. He has not moved well this season and admitted to Sherrod Blakely of Comcast Sports New England that he had a “minor procedure” done on his sore left knee. During the season.…

    Shaquille O’Neal could play Friday night when the Chicago Bulls come to Boston. Or, he could sit out all four games of next week’s road trip, which includes a rematch with Miami. Doc Rivers and crew simply don’t know when he’ll be back, as he told ESPNBoston.com. “He’s not going to play (Wednesday night) and…

    The NBA was kind enough to put together a montage of the, um, best of them. Maybe best isn’t the word, but they are plenty scary. And not all in a good, Halloween way. Enjoy.

  6. One O’Neal in, one O’Neal out for Celtics

    There will be an O’Neal starting at center for the Celtics Tuesday. But it won’t be Shaq, Doc Rivers said he will sit out Tuesday’s game against the Detroit Pistons, according to a tweet from Gary Washburn at the Boston Globe. Shaq has been dealing with knee issues that are slowing him down. Celtics fans,…

  7. Birth of a rivalry: a Heat-Celtics primer

    Oct 26, 2010, 1:36 PM EDT

    Miami Heat Media Day

    The Boston Celtics defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers in last year’s season opener, 95-89. They would go on to defeat the Cavaliers in six games, paving the way for Cleveland’s end as a contender. They began LeBron James’ year by beating him and they ended his year by beating him. Coincidence? Okay, yeah, probably so. When…

  8. Shaq plans to ride Boston subway dressed as a woman. And play some basketball.

    Shaquille O’Neal is a hit in Boston. His big, playful personality has been embraced by the city — did you see how many people came out to watch him be a statue? Next up? Going on the “T” (Boston’s quaint subway system) dressed as a woman named Shaquita, he told WEEI. “That’s a good idea.…

  9. Dwyane Wade wants to drop “Flash” nickname. As if he gets to choose.

    Oct 25, 2010, 8:46 AM EDT

    You do not get to choose your own nickname. It is given to you, it sticks or doesn’t, but there is an organic process to it. Shaquille O’Neal gave Dwyane Wade the nickname “Flash” and it stuck. Now Wade wants to unstick it. Wade said he no longer wants to go by Flash, according to…

  10. Dwyane Wade practices, Miami Triad returned to full power

    Oct 23, 2010, 5:14 PM EDT

    triad

    Yes, Mike Miller is on the shelf. And yes, they are bringing in Jerry Stackhouse to fill a role on the team. But in South Beach, as Dwyane Wade said this morning, the “band is back together.” “We’re excited about having the band back together,” Wade said after the two-hour, non-contact session. “It felt great.…

  11. Shaq poses as statue in Harvard Square (no, Kobe did not make pigeon jokes)

    Oct 21, 2010, 8:41 PM EDT

    When Shaq was on Boston radio a few weeks back, he talked about going out to a public place and posing as a statue for a while…. So today he sent out the tweet, and it was off to Harvard Square (just off the campus of Harvard in Cambridge) where for over an hour he…

  12. Jermaine O’Neal’s many nagging injuries may delay his start to the season

    Oct 21, 2010, 10:32 AM EDT

    JOneal_block

    Jermaine O’Neal was brought in to help carry the Celtics through the first months of the season, while Kendrick Perkins is still recovering from knee surgery. Fortunately, the Celtics brought in Shaquille O’Neal to back up the other O’Neal. Shaq got the start, put up 12 and 9 in 24 minutes, on 4 of 5…

  13. Is having a dominant point guard a bane to team-building?

    Oct 18, 2010, 6:58 PM EDT

    Steve Nash

    Constructing a team is rather inexact in its science, and though team officials have grown wise to particular trends and the like over the years, there are still countless ways to approach roster construction and just as many ways to fail in creating a championship-worthy roster. Building a solid, long-term team is tough, building a…

  14. Shaq says new technical rules make refs stars, “you might as well start selling their jerseys at Footlocker”

    Oct 15, 2010, 2:41 PM EDT

    Shaq_ref

    Why do you go to basketball games? The players? The passion and emotion? The skills? Shaquille O’Neal is on board with all that and he thinks the NBA’s new crackdown on complaints and handing out of technicals gets in the way of all that, as he told Holly McKenzie of The Score (via Trey Kerby).…

  15. Celtics shut Jermaine O'Neal down for rest of the week

    Oct 4, 2010, 10:22 PM EDT

    Jermaine O’Neal has been penciled in as the Celtics starting center with Kendrick Perkins still recovering. But he will not be the starter this week in the team’s first two exhibition games. O’Neal has a tight left hamstring and because this preseason nobody smart plays through injuries in the preseason. That means he will miss…

  16. Video: Nate Robinson and Shaquille O'Neal are two classic comedy peas in a pod

    Oct 2, 2010, 10:30 AM EDT

    You might think that the media would wholeheartedly be embracing the Miami Heat. But honestly, they’re covering it, we’re covering it, whatever, mostly out of necessity. It is a story. It will be a story. But if you want to know who’s really being given the sweet treatment? It’s Boston. The refrains goes as such:…

  17. Nate Robinson dunking on Shaq

    Sep 30, 2010, 2:35 PM EDT

    UPDATE 2:35 pm: Shaq and KG got him back. 12:42 pm: You had to know that having the big personalities (and dramatically different bodies) of Nate Robinson and Shaquille O’Neal on the same team was going to lead to some fun. Like Shaq saying he had a special surprise for Nate if he could dunk…

  18. Shaq to Kobe: "I don't compete with little guards"

    Sep 27, 2010, 10:41 AM EDT

    They are older and a little less petulant, but don’t think the Shaq v. Kobe rivalry is dead. In his post Game 7 press conference last June, Kobe Bryant was quick to say last year that “I got one more (ring) than Shaq.” That rivalry still matters to him (Kobe uses everything for motivation). Shaquille…

  19. Top 10 training camp questions

    Sep 23, 2010, 8:57 AM EDT

    Once training camps get rolling next week, there are going to be a lot of questions around the league — and not all of them are about the Heat. Although it will feel like that for a while. NBC’s Ira Winderman put together a list of those top 10 training camp questions (outside of “What…

  20. Kobe inspired Boston to go get Shaq… and stop pretending that feud is marketing

    Sep 20, 2010, 12:11 PM EDT

    Did anybody really buy the whole “Shaq v. Kobe” feud was marketing. Oh, Shaquille O’Neal is smart enough to know how to make these things marketable, but like ancient myths the elaborate stories built up around some kernel of truth. Then when Kobe got ring number five last June and was quick to say he…

  21. Shaq: The brilliant buffoon

    Sep 19, 2010, 2:07 PM EDT

    Shaquille O’Neal is officially listed at 7’1”, 315 lbs.(Beefy!). But he brings with him a much bigger personality. Shaq has made a career out of not only thundering dunks but bombastic comments. Prolific nicknames, battle raps, and your run of the mill trash talk from O’Neal has filled column inches (and blog posts) for 15…

  22. Eat like Steve Nash

    Sep 17, 2010, 8:37 AM EDT

    It’s the latest diet craze — Shaquille O’Neal has said he is on “the Nash diet.” Jared Dudley has asked about it. Bloggers are trying it. Pretty soon they’ll be talking about it on Oprah and then it is on. That’s Nash as in Steve Nash, still an elite point guard long after most his…

  23. Shaq fires back, says computer hacker lawsuit claims a "complete and utter fabrication"

    Sep 16, 2010, 7:52 PM EDT

    The charges were salacious — that Shaquille O’Neal hack a former employee’s computer, planted child porn and was generally a big bully. Shaq says they are also crap. Well, not Shaq directly, but his people. They released a lengthy statement yesterday, which was summarized in the Boston Herald. O’Neal called Darling “an ex-con” with a…

  24. Suddenly "Hack a Shaq" takes on a new meaning: Shaq sued for computer hacking

    Sep 15, 2010, 1:17 PM EDT

    About the only people with geekier reputations than bloggers are Star Trek convention attendees and computer hackers. Computer hackers like Shaquille O’Neal. A former employee of Shaq and his wife is suing him and Radar Online has the story (found first by Will Brinson of FanHouse, who sums all the ugliness up well for us):…

  25. NBA Season Preview: The Boston Celtics

    Sep 15, 2010, 12:44 PM EDT

    Last season: 50-32 during the regular season, but 17-17 down the stretch as key players got rest and healthy for the playoffs. Then they played like the 2008 Celtics in the postseason and advanced all the way to Game 7 of the NBA Finals before falling. Head Coach: Doc Rivers, back for what may well…
