Where do you go after signing with the Celtics? To the Burlington Mall, apparently.

Shaquille O'Neal was spotted shopping at the Massachusetts retail center earlier this afternoon by a number of fans -- some of whom were lucky enough to get their picture taken with the jolly green giant.

Naomi Nadal, a manager at the store Pandora, said a crowd of people were standing in front of her shop gawking as the new Celt walked by just about an hour ago. It was an extra shock for Nadal, who's a visiting store manager from New York and never expected anything interesting to happen at Pandora's Burlington location. "It was like, there he is. It was so weird, it was like, 'Oh my God.'"
