During the offseason Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant made it well known he has more championship rings than former teammate and now rival, Shaquille O’Neal.
Still able to contribute at 38, Shaq signed with the Boston Celtics, the runner up in last years NBA Finals to the Lakers, and a team desperately in need of a center after Kendrick Perkins tore his acl in his knee during game 6 of the Finals this past June.
Shaq has made it quite clear the Celtics were his first choice. If he wants to beat Kobe and the Lakers, what better team is there to do that than the Boston Celtics? Boston’s vacancy at center made the situation all the more fitting.
Shaq will get his chance to dethrone Kobe, and win his own fifth championship ring. He is playing on a NBA championship contender, one that is loaded with veterans. Shaq’s window of opportunity to win another title is dwindling, and this year could be his best shot left.
