Shaq: C's a 'good program'
Appearing on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live Monday to promote his upcoming television series, Shaq Vs., Shaquille O'Neal said he'd like to play two more seasons in the NBA and said the Boston Celtics would potentially be a good fit for him.
The 38-year-old O'Neal stressed to Kimmel that he's on a "730-day program," suggesting he wants to play two more years until he reaches 40. When Kimmel suggested he couldn't picture O'Neal in a Boston uniform, O'Neal responded, "The Celtics would be a good program."
Pressed if he would feel weird putting on a Celtics jersey after spending time with the Lakers, O'Neal simply shook his head and said, "No."
