    This is a good read, and leaves me feeling pretty good about what the Doc is and isn't expecting from Shaq, as well as the fact that Shaq's good attitude will fit well here.

    Shaq’s visit to Doc (Rivers) was right medicine - The Boston Globe


    Doc affirms what most of us recognized as Shaq's weaknesses (no surprise), though I was surprised that Doc was so upfront about Shaq's role in discussions with the media.

    How Doc uses Shaq's remaining considerable strengths, and covers up his weaknesses is one part of the puzzle that's going to be very interesting.

    It will be interesting to see how age and wisdom stand up against the youth in Miami this season and in the playoffs.

    Good job by Doc.

    Anyone else notice that Rondo and Ray have weighed in positively, and that KG was at the presser....and no word at all from Paul Pierce?

    Is this a coincidence?

    Probably not very well. ;)

    Regardless, though, this was a good move by the Celtics. There is no way in hell that Jermaine O'Neal should be a starting center for ANYBODY in this league. Shaq will be good for you guys on the boards, can set picks, and can still play some defense. He'll make the time that it takes for Perkins to heal up go by that much quicker.

    Answer: Yes. Pierce was recently quoted with positive remarks about Shaq.

    Said differently, never mind.
