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.
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.
