Jermaine O'Neal is kryptonite!

i felt this interview needed more exposure. JO and CB are focused very much on making each other better!

TORONTO -- There was a look in Jermaine O'Neal's eye that suggested awe.

Grabbing 91 rebounds in five games, after all, seems like a work more of fiction than reality, even for Superman.

"Oh, really?" O'Neal said after the Toronto Raptors finished practice Monday. "Wow."

But O'Neal was not with the Raptors last April when Dwight Howard took ownership of the glass in the first-round playoff series between the teams, making it readily apparent to the Raptors' brass that someone like O'Neal was needed.

Howard indeed totalled 91 rebounds in Orlando's five-game victory, including three games of at least 20 rebounds at Amway Arena, where the Raptors will play Tuesday night for the first time since last season came to an end on April 28.

"Orlando probably was the icing on the cake," O'Neal said of the Raptors' motivations for acquiring him in the off-season.
