Let's see who I can throw under the bus next?
The retired Shaq continues to make news. We haven't reported the most damning allegations on here about the murder charges. You can check out CBS Sports to read about that. We did report on Shaq breaking the code of "what is said in the locker room, stays in the locker room," by essentially calling former teammate Rajon Rondo out as being way too sensitive and letting a President Obama joke mess with his game. You could also say, he threw KG in the mix by quoting him too. This is all because Shaq wants to stay in the news and is releasing a book next month. Pretty sure other former teammates will also be thrown under the bus.

Today the big news is that Shaq told a Newsweek reporter about Dwyane Wade being unfaithful to his girlfriend. Ironically Shaq killed the Kobe/O'Neal Laker dynasty when Kobe snitched on him. Yes that would be Shaq being hypocritical, but he always bashes his former teammates and organizations when he leaves. Maybe that's why the Celtics owners bought him that huge RV after he did shit for the Celtics when it mattered.

If you recall I was against the C's signing the old fat ass last Summer. Allegedly so were the Celtics, but after their first choice Kwame Brown signed for more dollars in Charlotte, the C's signed Shaq out of need. At first things looked to be going well. Playing with a pass first point guard in Rajon Rondo, Shaq was able to clean up on easy hoops, but as was predicted, years of letting his body go forced him to break down again and he limped off into the sunset after the C's were bounced in the playoffs the quickest they had in the entire Big 3 era. This is nothing new for Shaq. The Cavs got bounced from the playoffs quicker with Shaq than the year before without him. The Suns fell from West contender to also ran after they traded for Shaq. But once they got rid of him they made the Western Conference Finals. The Heat were awful the last couple years Shaq was there, but immediately improved the season after he was traded.

I'm a Laker!
Shaq was someone who could have been one of the very best that ever played the game, but he didn't keep himself in shape, he concentrated too much on movies and music, didn't work on his weaknesses, and has continued to have riffs with teammates.

I'm not sure why Boston fans consider him one of our own. He was a Laker who had a cameo in Boston. I'm glad he's retired. I'm glad he's no longer a Celtic. He let's us down, just as he did several teams before (going all the way back to leaving Orlando). And he needs to shut his mouth regarding former teammates. He's always been way too jealous. First it was Penny Hardaway, then Kobe. Wade let him pretend he was the man in Miami and he still throws him under the bus. LeBron wanted nothing to do with Shaq joining him in Miami. And now Shaq is talking shit about Rajon Rondo. I'm sure there will be more Celtics drama that he'll share in his book, because Shaq doesn't care about his former teammates. He was never a Celtic. He only cares about himself, The Big Ego. Good riddance Laker scum.

    Shaq the big fat egoistic fool

    Thank you,thank you,THANK YOU! I ranted and raved that signing him would be a HUGE mistake. It was. Now we have no center-THANKS DANNY. It was laughable listening to the daily "Shaq is coming back soon" updates. Rondo has more class than he ever will. He could easily take shots at old Gramps,but he doesn't. Class can't be bought. You either have it or you don't. In Rondo we trust.

    Wonder what story line he kept feeding everyone for Danny to be so blind to hold on to Shaq for the whole season. Shaq put C's in a detrimental position leading into the playoffs. Like how many minutes did he actual play. What a joke!
    Hope Charles Barkley walks all over him in his new job.

    So much Shaq hate here. Damn. He helped our team, but you can't predict injuries. I don't regret his signing at all. Too bad y'all remember only the injury side of what he did - he sure as hell helped us during the season and developed good chemistry with the guys. Don't trash the man, he tried.

    So much for your "1825" motto Shaq: 18th title for Celtics, 2nd title for New Big Three Era, and 5th title for you.

    Wow, where were all you haters when the rest of the Boston fans were loving Shaq?! He was signed for the minimum and wasn't expected to be an integral part of the team. Get over your hate and stop knocking him. His injuries and aging body weren't a secret. Nobody was more disappointed than Shaq that he couldn't contribute. He himself said he feels he let down the fans and was disappointed at how his season turned out. Shame on all of you for trashing him like this.

    kinda agree with anon above

    I don't agree at all with all this hate. Yes, he has a big mouth and yes, he didn't keep himself in shape for many years. But he tried and gave us the best games in the season when he was healthy. His body gave up, but he really gave everything to contribute to the team.

    People forget all the things Shaq had to do to try and be able to play (cortisone shots and all that).

    Honestly, you can't say that Shaq didn't give a damn about the Celtics. Only injuries and a bad trade prevented us from winning with Shaq as a piece of the puzzle.

    Once a Celtic, always a Celtic.

  11. Yeah but he'll be awesome on TNT.

    Bohemian my main beef with Shaq is his big mouth. He's always bashing teammates and former teammates. The Rondo and Wade news is nothing new. Imagine if Glen Davis was coming out with a book and was sharing Celtics locker room stuff that should be kept private? People would be KILLING him. And Glen Davis has done much more for the Celtics than Shaq has. Shaq is a Laker.
