It seems like the NBA is becoming more about stacking teams than competition.

Currently, former players who controlled the NBA like Shaq, Tracy McGrady, and Iverson, have no teams. They are older and nobody seems to want to take a chance on them.

However, the Boston Celtics according to NBA.com are close to signing a deal with the 38 year old Shaquille O’Neal.

Quote:

Boston Celtics were “close” on Tuesday, according to a league source, to signing center Shaquille O’Neal for next season.

The Celtics, the source said, have told O’Neal that he has to come off the bench next season, and that O’Neal said he could accept a reserve role for the first time in his career.

The three-time Finals MVP has not had many suitors this summer that had either the playing time or money to offer him, and O’Neal is running out of places that can give him a chance to compete for a championship as his career draws to a close.

This should be interesting.
