O’Neal held a news conference this afternoon with Celtics head coach Doc Rivers where the 18-year NBA veteran fielded questions from the Boston press, and revealed his new jersey.
“Will it fit?” Rivers joked when the two held up the No. 36 uniform that Shaq will wear.
Before the questions came in, Rivers made a brief announcement welcoming O’Neal to Boston, and said the organization is very excited to have him on the roster.
“The bottom line is we’re looking at Shaq as another piece of the puzzle,” Rivers said. “We’re trying to put a puzzle together to make another title run, and that’s why Shaq wants to be here.”
