Kobe motivated Celtics to sign Shaq

This is pretty funny. Getting older won’t help them win.

Boston.com: “The minute I heard Kobe [Bryant] say he had one more ring than Shaq, I said to Danny, ‘Let’s go get Shaq,’ and it happened,’’ said Grousbeck.

    I wonder what the Celtics would have done if Kobe had said “I got 5 more than Kwame”

  • LakersGal

    lol…hmm Shaq cudn’t win one for self proclaimed King (ring for king). So… how is he going to win one for the older celts. Although i do hope that Shaq helps bring Celtics out of the east so that Lakers can beat their damn starting five and shut Rivers up for once and all.

    • Betto

      You got that right! The Celtics getting Shaq means they just keep getting older and older, they could have gotten a young player for the same money. Lol That douche Rivers should shut up about Lakers not beating his starting 5, he hasn’t beaten the Lakers starting 5 either. :P

  • Lakers=beast

    LOL, Why sign Shaq? The Celdicks are getting pretty old now!

  • Robert.

    Wow! Let’s go get Shaq, right? What a beast that team is gonna be now. Shaq couldn’t get there as a cactus, couldn’t win a ring for the queen, can barely beat Dick Bavetta in a running race (wait, that was Charles Barkley), and now he’s gonna make the already aging, crippled Cell-dicks a powerhouse???
    .
    Shaq is pissed now. Look out !!!!
    .
    How much more meat will the Cell-dicks pile up on their team? More meat does NOT = team to beat.

  • jediraph

    so, Kobe is now deciding for the Celtics on whom to sign? hmmmm…..that’s strange and funny

  • 242LakerFan

    IT’S STILL ALL ABOUT KOBE, ISN’T IT? HA!
    Gee, I wonder what other old, broken down bodies Kobe could have mentioned that the C’s could’ve used to fill out their roster. He’s got five more than Charles Barkley!

  • F__K That!

    Damn C’s they look like a geriatric institution there.
    What a joke.
    I think they have at least 6 guys over 34 years of age.
    KG
    Shaq
    O’neil
    Ray
    PP
    Sheed ( i think he retired)

  • The artist formally known as Brown Hater

    Didn’t Shaq run around singing Kobe tell me how my ass taste when he had one more ring than Kobe. And now when Kobes say I got one more than Shaq, Shaq is gonna be so pissed off that he is going to carry the C’s to a title. And if they wanted him so bad why did they only sign him to the vet min. They would have used ther mid level on him not on JO. That right Celtics do whatever it takes to try and motivate yourselves

      I’m pretty sure this statement is one of those you make up when it happens to add drama or a plot twist. The truth is they needed insurance for their center position and Jermaine O’Neal wasn’t going to be enough incase an injury plagues Perkins and Shaq is backup. Now that they signed him, they use this statement as an excuse for signing him to stir heat between the Lakers and Celtics again, mainly between Kobe and Shaq.

  • Baby Kwame

    Shaq and Kobe are the most classless players in the league. Just let it go!!!

    • 242LakerFan

      You know, you’re right. We should all abandon TLN and go over to OrlandoMagic.com and become Dwight Howard fans. We may never cheer a champion, but at least he’s a nice guy with class.
      WHO’S WITH ME???!!!!!

  • daboss1848

    ah yes, the blind loyalty of a laker fan . . . y’all forget what that old PIG did to us in both games last year?
    .
    aside from his tangible stats (5-9 FGs, 13 pts, 6 rbs, 3 asts,1 stl, 1 blk; and 5-8 FGs, 11 pts, 7rbs), any1 notice how he makes our tentative dribble penetration completely nonexistent, or how our bigs become more tentative and/or rush their shots around this behemoth?
    .
    I’m not so quick to dismiss this addition, considering Game 7 . . .

    • 242LakerFan

      I am not so quick to overestimate the relevancy of anyone’s performance in the regular season.
      What is our post-season record against Shaq?
      Sometimes, boss, I wonder at how you manage to find the dark cloud in front of every silver lining.

      • daboss1848

        No overestimation – just stats and my own perception . . . and definitley no underestimation.
        .
        I see no silver lining here nor do I see a dark cloud.
        .
        What I do have is a wait and see attitude, rather than a total dismissal of a PIG who clearly changes the way our players are accustomed to playing.

        I can’t believe you faker fans don’t see how shaq will dominate you fools this year. Throw that 6-24 up again and it will be a quick series this year.

        • TOUCHING_MYSELF

          Coincidentally, that 6-24 will be the same number that the BIG FAT SNAQ will have for the Celd!cks except that wouldn’t be Field goals, it would be free throws. Thanks for bringing that up!

    • Sir

      I was about to say the same thing. Let’s not forget how he shut down our bigs in the two games last season.

  • JD

    Old shaq is just jealous

  • rondo

    Shaq will not bring another team to the championship. Shaq is washed up.

  • Robert.

    Actually this is quite flattering.
    .
    Everyone wants to stop Kobe. LeFizzle goes to Miami to join others to stop Kobe. Snaq goes to Boston. Maybe all other teams besides the Lakers should join together, and make one super team just to stop Kobe.
    .
    Maybe they should let the other teams have 6 players against the Lakers to stop Kobe. Maybe the other teams should have a handicap (10 points? 20 points?) just to stop Kobe.
    .
    Maybe Kobe’s new killer shoes should be outlawed. Just to stop Kobe.
    .
    WOW – is Kobe that great that everyone has to ‘stop’ him?
    .
    Maybe so :)

  • Robert.

    p.s., – - can’t be stopped.

    Kobe Bryant, Coach Jackson The Lakers period, have proven to me over the last 3 years that there is no better Player no better Coach, no better system in all of the NBA at present and into the upcoming season. So switch or bring in what ever player or system you like, the Lakers have Phil, Kobe, Andrew, Gasol, and Derek with that crew and any of the other really good players the Lakers have or may acquire during the season, we are NBA Champions in 2011 Bar NONE. So bring on Shaq and celticons, the Heat seekers in Miami and anybody else that may want to try in the West (Marks Mavs). Come season opener talking aside, as the saying goes, in order to be the man you’ve got to beat the man and I don’t believe there is not yet a team put together that can out last these lakers in a 7 game Championship Series.

    LOL Wyatt Earp or what ever the name of the Celtics Owner can do one thing And thats STFU

  • si pepe

  • laughoutloud

    DONT BE SCARED HOMIES!

  • cjm

    the only endorsements shaq has are ExLax and Depends.

  • Celtics Suck Salty Nuts

    Don’t underestimate the Celts. The just added a lot, I mean lot of size with the 2 O’neals joining them. Underestimation never does a team any good.
