J.O. Tells Heat that Tonight’s the Night

Time to show and prove for Mr. O’Neal: ‘You don’t get traded 52 games into the season and not expect it to be difficult,” the six-time All-Star said. ‘But as a player, if you think it’s too difficult a task, you tell your agent, or you tell whatever team you need to tell that you can’t make that transition.’ O’Neal believes he’ll make the transition sooner than later, and he’s targeting tonight’s 7:30 game against Detroit at AmericanAirlines Arena, his fourth with the Heat. ‘I’ve always been a player who has really responded,” he said, “and I will respond come Tuesday.’”

    I expect notes if you do. Only for my own sake. I need first-hand observation of that travelling Detroit circus.

    TAD….I think it could be comical…..but I actually think it’s going to be a really good game. They both need the win…..bad.

    I think anybody can look good and make it look like they are “responding” after playing Dwight Howard, and especially against these Pistons

    bloody nba idiots with their guarantees. J.O. Ask T-Mac what his declarations lef to this season. Or Penny back in the day. You are on creaky knees in a league on transition and packed with serious players at your position. No need for high school tactics, work hard, impress with game and stfu already!

    JO gives hilariously confident interview answers, did he and the Pacers win a chip when I wasn’t paying attention or something?

    Oh, and Neil Young is the realness.

    here’s to hoping he’ll get a forehead injury, might make his head look less like a beachball
