Shaquille O'Neal Signs With The Boston Celtics

Shaquille O’Neal, brought in before last season to try to bring Cleveland its first NBA championship, has left the Cavaliers and has signed a two-year contract with the Boston Celtics for a reported $3 million.

Shaq, who averaged 12 points and 6.7 rebounds a game in 53 appearances for the Cavaliers, becomes the fifth player over 30 on the Celtics, as Boston tries to fill the void left by the injury to center Kendrick Perkins that will keep Perkins out until February.

All the best to you, Shaq.
