Exclamation Shaq wants to play until 41, considers going to Nets

"Of course," he said. "I missed 360 games because of injury in my career, so by my calculations I still have 3.7 years left. That means I'm going to play until I'm 41. I've been here 17 years but I've missed a lot of games, so I still feel I can play this game."

Disappointed Shaquille O'Neal wants to keep playing, would consider return to Cleveland Cavaliers | cleveland.com

Cavaliers free agent center Shaquille O'Neal, a Newark native, told The Post he would consider the Nets as a destination this summer -- intrigued because they now reside in his hometown.

Shaq might say 'da' with Nets in Newark - NYPOST.com

What do you guys think on both of those points?

It's sad watching a player become obsolete. He is no longer a force inside and can not keep pace with current players.

He looked tired and lost for the past two years. And his reality show is just an attempt to stay in the public eye. It was brutal.

Hang them up, Shaq. Try to retain just an ounce of dignity.

Yeah, Shaq is awful now. He's had a good run, about 8 years ago, I was giving him "3/4 years tops," but he was relevant for about 6. Now, though, he is definitely done.

It's getting embarrassing for him now. And it's not helping that he likes to attack other players and coaches in the media for attention.

shaq a $20 mil was a waste, but shaq at a tiny salary would be an asset to almost any playoff team. experience, personality, short minutes... who wouldn't want shaq as your 3rd or 4th big at the vets minimum?

You think Shaq would take a 3rd to 4th string spot without running his mouth?

They're playing in Newark until the BK arena gets built.

It's funny, a year ago everyone was laughing at everything he did, now that he's ready to be put out to pasture he's "desperate for attention and it's sad to watch"...

He's being too selfish. I think he wants to beat Chamberlain and Jordan in the All nba points total. He's never going to catch up to Kareem or even Malone.

True, but does Shaq want Shaq to be the 3rd or 4th big off the bench? He pouted and moaned after being benched with five fouls for the fourth quarter in game five I think it was.

Even at the vet. minimum, I'd be wary of having Shaq in a team locker-room. He's far too vocal and could be a major chemistry-killer/cancer.
