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

by February 24, 2009

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.'”
