J.O. to T.O.?

The Indianapolis Star reports that Jermaine O’neal is the latest name that may be heading up North. The deal has been “agreed in principle” that would send TJ Ford, Rasho Nesterovic and the 17th draft pick to Indiana for Jermaine O’neal. This could be a significant upgrade for Toronto and would give Indiana the 11th and 17th pick in tomorrow’s draft.

If the deal happens (depending on physicals), this would most likely put Bosh and O’Neal in the front court along with Jamario Moon, Anthony Parker and Jose Calderon. After this season’s disappointing playoff result for the Raps, a roster change is needed to make the Raps a more competitive ball club. In bringing the former all-star O’Neal to Toronto, this could make Toronto a stronger competitor in the East.

Both Ford and O’Neal have both been plagued with injuries but the risk for both clubs would be equivalent. And if Jermaine O’Neal can be the 20-10 healthy player he once was, the Raps can show the fans that can go deeper in this season’s playoffs.

On another note, if you haven’t checked out Shaq’s rap yet, check it here.

He’s no Biggie Smalls whatsoever but it’s amusing to say the least.....
