Even before Tuesday's introductory press conference that officially introduced Shaquille as a member of the Celtics, the big man was already saying the right things.
In the Boston Herald, Shaq was quoted as saying he's ready and accepting of his new role on Boston's bench.
"I'm at the point of my career where I'm a role player," O'Neal told reporters at a charity basketball game in Orlando, Fla., on Saturday. "I'm going to do whatever they ask me to do. I'm not looking to come up there and dominate the ball and do too much. Whatever they need me to do, I'm going to do."
