Jermaine O'Neal Has Boston On The Short List

And now for something completely different: Non-LeBron coverage!

Free-agent center Jermaine O'Neal said Wednesday that he expects to sign with one of the three following teams in coming days: Dallas, Denver or Boston.

"Those are my favorites," O'Neal told ESPN.com "Those are teams that are going to compete [for a championship] next year."

O'Neal said he's still deliberating between the three teams -- all believed to be offering a portion of the mid-level exception to sign him -- and called the decision perhaps "the most important of my career because I know this is kind of my last run at it" in terms of title-chasing.

-Marc Stein, ESPN

This I am okay with. Jermaine O'Neal is not a long term solution by any means, but he is like that old piece of scrap wood you use to keep your window open in summer time; Won't last forever, but it'll do for now.

Also, check out this article from Adrian Wojnarowski over at Yahoo(exclaimation mark). If you have been wanting for someone to speak out about how ridiculous this summer has been so far, he's your huckleberry.
