Shaquille O'Neal Signs Two-Year Deal With Boston

The grand experiment is at an end, and the center brought in to try and help Cleveland win its first NBA title has followed LeBron James, Zydrunas Ilgauskas, and Delonte West out of town.

Shaquille O'Neal has left Cleveland and signed a two-year pact with the Boston Celtics, worth a reported 3 million dollars.

Ironically, Shaq's first road game of the season will be in Cleveland against the Cavaliers on October 27th.  The big man, who averaged 12 points a game in 53 games for the Cavs, to go along with 6.7 rebounds per game and 1.2 blocks, joins a Celtics' team that was maybe one big man shy of winning the NBA championship against the Lakers, and will serve to help fill the spot vacated by the injured Kendrick Perkins, hurt in Game Six against Los Angeles, and who is out until at least February.

O'Neal, who said that he was "honored" to sign with the Celtics, will be joining a squad that will now feature five players over 30 years of age.

Shaq, we wish you all the best. especially after the Cavs' season opener.
