Jermaine O’Neal played 18 NBA seasons for seven different teams, and proved he was still impactful in a reserve role last year with the Golden State Warriors.
O’Neal has contemplated retirement, however, and has yet to make a decision on whether or not he’ll catch on with someone — most likely a contender — before the season is finished.
For 18 long years sports has dominated my families life to a point that they have had to sacrifice things that was important to them.
So you can believe now whatever decision I make will be a pure family decision that my family will have a huge part on making with me.
Can I physically still play?Probably better than 60% of the bigs in the league today! That’s not a knock on anyone but more about how I feel
My decision will not be based off any personal relationships with a cityor organization which will be tuff because Ofthe love I got for them
There’s more on O’Neal’s timeline, but you get the picture.
If family is the primary consideration, then Dallas indeed makes the most sense.
The trade for Rajon Rondo left the Mavericks with little to no front line depth after including Brandan Wright in the package, and O’Neal makes his home in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, making the fit seemingly a natural one for both player and team alike.
