Strong words from J.O. ESPN writes about the J.O. news:
ESPN: If Pacers forward Jermaine O’Neal has his way, he’ll be the help Kobe Bryant is clamoring for with the Lakers.
“It’s time for me to move on,” O’Neal said Sunday at Baron Davis’ and Paul Pierce’s annual L.A. Stars charity basketball game at USC’s Galen Center. “And the Lakers are the team I want Indiana to trade me to.”
O’Neal said he doesn’t want to be part of a rebuilding project with the Lakers. He said if a trade to the Lakers doesn’t work out, he’d also welcome a deal to the Nets.
