    Shaq s a great guy who does a lot of good things for people but his acquistion along with the Perkins deal has not been a good one for the Celtics. Danny Boy, what in the world were you thinking?

  2. Sam says:

    Shaq is nothing more than a sideshow at this point in his career. Ten years past his prime. What the f were the Celtics ever thinking?

  3. Jake says:

    Shaq does great things for the community, and WAS a great player. I think that the Celtics should re-think his contract and pull the medical statue in it. Sorry Shaq, but it’s time to retire.
