I dunno if Shaquille O’Neal can bring the Boston Celtics their 18th banner, but I think his arrival in the Hub is the most interesting story line for Boston sports this summer.
Yes, even bigger than the Red Sox’ possible third place AL East finish and wild card run. Even bigger than the Patriots opening training camp as Tom Brady still has no deal in place. Even bigger than then the collective age of the Celtics growing one year. (Or Rasheed Wallace retiring.) Or the Bruins’ drafting of Tyler Seguin, a.k.a. the savior.
It’s that big.
I guess that’s why they call him The Big Leprachaun now. Or Shaq-rock. Whatever you choose. (I happen to like Shaqachusetts.) He’s huge.
