It’s clear to anyone who’s seen one of Shaquille O’Neal’s 37 games that if “The Big Shamrock” is healthy come playoff time, he’ll be a huge asset to the Celtics.

Wizards Defeat Celtics in Washington

I don’t like it any more than you do. With both O’Neals, Shaq and Jermaine, out with knee troubles, the Celtics needed to come out strong. They did the opposite, and due to a hungry John Wall and Co, their own complacency and a few bad calls here and there, the Celtics lost to the […]
