Official: Shaquille O'Neal to Boston

Shaquille O'Neal has decided to join the Boston Celtics, according to sources with knowledge of the situation. He is expected to tell the team of his intentions Wednesday morning.

O'Neal
The length of the contract is not known, but O'Neal, who has been seeking a two-year deal, will play for the veteran's minimum of $1.4 million annually.
Celtics coach Doc Rivers began pursuing O'Neal last month when the two met in Orlando. Boston and the Atlanta Hawks were the two clubs most interested in O'Neal, and sources say O'Neal chose the Celtics because he believes they have a better chance of winning what would be his fifth NBA championship.
O'Neal, 38, averaged 12 points and 6.7 rebounds last season for the Cleveland Cavaliers. In the Cavs' six-game loss to Boston in the Eastern Conference semifinals, he averaged 13.5 points and 5 rebounds in 23 minutes a game.
adding Shaquille O'Neal, the Celtics would serve notice that they won't be easily pushed aside in the new NBA landscape. Story
Although O'Neal is no longer the dominant force he was for most of his 18-year career, he will bolster a Celtics' front line that will be without injured starter Kendrick Perkins for the first few months of the season.
Earlier this summer, the Celtics added Jermaine O'Neal, signing the veteran center/power forward for the full mid-level exception of $5.7 million.
Comcast SportsNet-New England reported Tuesday that Shaquille O'Neal and the Celtics were close to agreeing to a deal. With Celtics general manager Danny Ainge out of town on vacation, an official news conference is expected to take place next week.

Yep. At the end of the day, the Celtics have bruisers. Depth in the front court is key in this day in age. Shaq's contribution will be felt on D and on the boards. Plus he clogs the lanes and protects the basket from acrobats. Just what they need to keep Wade and LeBron out of the paint or at the very least, will make them think twice.

This Celtic team will remind us of the Bad Boy Piston teams in terms of attitude. No easy buckets. And if Rasheed decides to come back half way thru the season, oh boy.

The Celtics are for real.

i guess i just dont really see whats so great about anyone on the celts frontline

KG is getting old, and hes one injury away from being jermaine oneal
Jermaine oneal is already jermaine oneal
Snaq is old, he doesnt play good defense and hes a prick who still wants to dominate the ball
Perkins I actually like cause hes tough but hes hurt

but overall i dont see why signing shaq is such a game changer

Lakers frontline is overrated only consistent post player they have is Gasol.
That's been enough for the past two years. The Lakers don't have bruisers but we present match up problems. With Lamar and Bynum its pick your poison.

Overrated? Nah.
