Jermaine was offically waived by the Celtics Thursday night. I thought it was odd that Jermaine wasn't waived at this point. Jermaine's time in Boston wasn't ideal, and it wasn't productive by any means. The Celtics gave him millions of dollars to do almost nothing. He had his moments, but he came to Boston in 2010 over weight, and out of basketball shape. The injuries followed him, like a dog wanting a treat.
The Celtics tried to move O'neal before the season started, but a deal to bring in David West never came to life. The Celtics stuck it out with JO until his body gave up. One of the best things to happen for the Celtics has been the loss of O'neal. Greg now gets playing time, and the Celtcs were able to move KG to the five. It's a great feeling to finally know JO has been sent out of town. I know he wasn't playing, but his roster spot was taken. Jermaine played only 49 regular season games in two years with the Celtics. Just sad.
