We’ve had weeks of speculation on the topic, but last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, we heard it straight from the horse’s mouth; Shaq wants to play for the Boston Celtics.
Kimmel brought up the topic last night about 3 minutes through his interview, creating an entertaining exchange between him and O’Neal:
Kimmel: Where are you going to play next year? Have you decided? Are you leaning one way or another?
O’Neal: You know right now, I’m on the 730 day program, which means I have two years left, so I’m going to try to sign with the right team to end my career.
Kimmel: Two years left in your NBA Career? Ok, I just can’t imagine you in a Celtics uniform though…..can you imagine it?
O’Neal: Celtics would be a good program.
Kimmel: That’d be a good place to go?
O’Neal: Yes, it would.
Kimmel: Would you feel weird about putting on a Celtics uniform after playing for the Lakers?
