Even if this is true, I still think Boston can make it out of the east. Miami is not deep enough and is soft down low, and Chicago is too inexperienced. As long as Jermain O'neal is healthy, Boston will pull through. Until they reach the finals of course and the Lakers beat them. :D

OKC is good, but they will need a lot of help from David Stern and the refs to make it out of the West. The refs can only help so much, unless of course they go back to the days of the 04 and 06 finals.

all he needs to do is clog the paint, grab some boards, and block some shots for the Cs to make it out of the east. even in his washed up state, J O'Neal can definitely do that.

good. finally. he should have left years ago. his work ethic didn't hasn't warranted a spot in the NBA since he left PHX. his work ethic and ego was his own worst enemy, for as great as his numbers were, don't ever confuse him for a great player. he was just so big and dominant and impossible to do anything with when he was properly conditioned. for a real basketball player, see: Hakeem Olajuwan vs Orlando Magic (Shaq) in the 95 finals. Hakeem worked him every which way :D

I bet not. Especially when he gets back, is ineffective and reinjures himself within a few games of returning. Not to mention, even with him in there he's not in good enough shape to log enough minutes that will make the difference needed for Boston to come out of the east. They struggled to get past Melo and 4 other guys yesterday...

Solid initial reporting job.
Either way, it would've made no sense at all to rule him out for the remainder of the postseason, especially with his injury, which actually is a day-to-day thing. Now they're saying he hasn't even been ruled out for Game 4, though highly unlikely. Their playoff run could last another week or another month. I'll bet he's back if they get to the second round. I'll also take the under on him remaining healthy. Still, they won't be asking much from him if he makes it back, other than taking up space. That he can do.

Rivers refutes report Shaq is done for playoffs

By A. Sherrod Blakely
CSNNE.com

WALTHAM — Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers refuted a report that it would take a "miraculous recovery" for Celtics center Shaquille O'Neal to return for the playoffs.

"I know that's not true," Rivers told CSNNE.com. "He's going to play. I just don't know when."

O'Neal has played a career-low 37 games this season for the C's, primarily because of multiple injuries to his right leg.

Dr. Brian McKeon, the C's team doctor, said the 39-year-old has a triceps surae injury which has created pain around his right calf and Achilles tendon that has been too painful for him to play through.

The team put O'Neal through a running drill on Saturday, but McKeon said O'Neal failed it.

The report alleging that paints the return of O'Neal as being unlikely was in the North Andover Eagle Tribune.

The newspaper cited an unnamed source who said that, "if he were to come back, it would have to be a miraculous recovery. And at his age (39 years old) and physical condition, the Celtics have planned accordingly."

According to the report, the decision to plan on life without O'Neal was made shortly after he failed the running drill on Saturday.

That same day, McKeon as well as Danny Ainge, Boston's president of basketball operations, addressed the media to give an update on O'Neal's status.

"He's actually made progression every day," McKeon said. "This is a tough injury. The blood supply in this area is so weak and so poor . . . it needs time. I was telling Danny and the coaches, in the last 20 years of medicine, this is one area we have made no progress. It's just time. It's hard to get enough healing potential in that area."

Ainge added, "It's not like there is this magic test. The test is, does it hurt? You run up and down the court and does it hurt. That's the test. And can you play."

Even before O'Neal arrived, the Celtics made a strong push to bolster the center position.

That mindset didn't change after they traded Kendrick Perkins to Oklahoma City.

In addition to Shaquille O'Neal and Jermaine O'Neal, the C's also have Nenad Krstic (he came over as part of the Perkins trade with the Thunder) and Troy Murphy, who signed with the Celtics after being waived by the New Jersey Nets. The Celtics also use Glen Davis and Kevin Garnett at times at the center position.

Surgery won't fix his injury, and cortisone shots have little effect on that part of the body, McKeon said.

"The longer we wait, the better chance he has of being healthy."

Welcome to the uncharted territory that is the NBA playoffs Knicks fans where sometimes...on occasion...the striped guys don't hand you every single call you desire. The Celtics had more than their share of postseason calls go against 'em the past few years.
But you've caught on to the most important element. The fact that the Knicks haven't won a postseason GAME in 10 years is irrelevent. Just make certain everyone knows the reason you lost to Boston is the referees.
Outstanding. You guys should hire Isiah to run operations, or something.

However... when he does come back, he's not going to be able to do much at all. Basically, the difference between him playing and "out for the rest of the playoffs" will not be that significant.

This is a ridiculously wrong statement. Shaq is 7'1" and is probably around 350 lbs. His mere presence in the lane will open up Boston's offense and make it extremely hard for opposing teams to get inside.

Yes, if he was 100% healthy I would completely agree. Hell, if he was 75% healthy I'd agree too.

The guy has been injured for how long now? He just tried to run a sprint last week and his leg gave out... At what point will people start to realize that he is just getting old?

It's not like the C's can play him heavy minutes.


-If it came down to it, I'd rather have him able to play (however healthy he is) than sit on the bench in a suit... but you can't expect much at all from him at this point.

I read also on here that LA will still beat them, isn't the LA series tied at 1-1 with the Hornets not havin there 2nd best player(i think Laker fans need to chill) an for Mia fans, J.Oneal, an Kristic, is more then enough to beat the 2 And a half men down there in south beach..........

To all the Shaq haters... if you don't think Shaq is going to play with all his heart, then you're sadly mistaken. It doesn't matter if Shaq is only logging 15-20 minutes a night. He's going to make a difference.

And if Boston meets LA in the Finals? You can bet your *** that Shaq is out there hustling and giving 100%. Determination will be his guiding force to beat Kobe in the finals.

04-21-2011, 12:36 PM
Bottom line is it would make ZERO sense for Ainge or Doc to "rule him out for the playoffs." Why wouldn't they want to keep their opponent guessing? More importantly, with his particular injury, he could be much improved in three days...or three weeks...and no one can say otherwise. "Gametime Decision" would seem the most beneficial route to go.

Enough with all the cliche horseshit.


Shaq can "play with all his heart" but that won't help his 40 year old legs. The guy tried to sprint the other day and his legs gave out. Nobody is disrespecting Shaq by saying that he is very old and injured at this point.

Even if they do get him back, he won't be completely healthy or anything like that.

Well the good thing for the Celtics is that The heat suck so they dont have to worry much about having size....I think Nenad Kristic and Oneal would be enough to get them through The Heat....its the Finals when Shaqs presence would be missed.

lakers fans who still think boston can win are just scared of what chicago and miami could do to them :rolleyes:

No we are not "scared"...its just that every true Laker fan always wants to see a Boston vs Lakers finals. Honestly, I'm more scared of David Stern and the refs than I am of the Bulls or the Heat.
