Jermaine O'Neal is desperate for a title. The chances of doing that in Boston have shrunk significantly… in part because he, himself can't stay on the floor long enough to provide the help down low the Celtics desperately need.
So since he's not good or healthy enough to help the Celtics, he's got another plan in mind, apparently.
That's pretty ballsy. Jermaine O'Neal was going to be a key component to the C's this year because the Celtics need his defense and rebounding ability. However, those abilities aren't always there, hurting the C's chances of doing anything significant in the playoffs. So apparently he figures sitting in Miami's training room rather than the C's training room would be better.
I say send him to Toronto for a conditional 2nd round pick. I don't care if we never get that pick. I just want him to go somewhere he'll hate. Charlotte works too.
