Shaquille O’Neal fired shots at former Cleveland teammate Mo Williams from a charity golf tournament in Louisiana apparently after hearing comments Williams made at another charity event about wanting to be a great player in one city and not wanting to be the type of player that hopped from franchise to franchise. Williams never actually say Shaq’s name, but Shaq didn’t flinch at the chance to retaliate.
O’Neal said what sold him on the Celtics is the unselfish play of the veteran group.
“I like that they play together and nobody really worries about shots, ” O’Neal said. “When I was with Cleveland, guys who couldn’t even play were worried about shots. Why was Mo (Williams) taking 15 shots, and I’m only taking four? If LeBron takes 20 shots, that’s cool.
“So I said, let me get with a good team for the last two years. I don’t mind people calling me a journeyman. I’ve been programmed to move around every three years.”
Everyone’s got to kill time one way or another. Glen Davis does it by rapping and eating Cheerios. Some language isn’t suitable for work.
