Free agent center Jermaine O'Neal has agreed to sign with the <s>#</s>Suns (https://twitter.com/search/?q=%23Suns&src=hash). More to come on http://azcentral.com (http://t.co/yaZtbrhi) shortly.

Figure it's thread worthy enough, something to take our minds off the Dwightmare anyway. I think JO's nothing but a contract these days basically, but you couldn't pick a better spot for him to land. Maybe he'll finally dominate.

I am just happy he's not a Laker.

Suns training staff and hyperbolic chamber to the rescue....

I had already decided that I would go against everything that is holy and make the Lakers my second favorite team if he had joined them... Apparently if you put JO and Nash together on a team I can root for them no matter what franchise it is...

But that didnt happen so my 2nd favorite team remains unchanged... OKC

I admire your courage.
I wouldn't have been able to do it.

Already forced to dislike Nash (who was my fav non-Pacer), having to turn against JO would have been too much :(

Good for Jermaine. Between the off season treatment in Germany and the Suns training staff, he should be effective for them.

I was thinking the same thing considering how effective Grant Hill and then Michael Redd were last year.

because being effective and averaging 20 and 10 is the same thing...

I already am not very fond of JO these days. But I think that playing for the Suns will be good for him. Besides that, I think the Suns are going to be a surprise team this year. Kendall Marshall and Mike Beasley could do some extraordinarily unexpected things this season.

I cannot root against Nash. Same with Battier. It sucks that they play for the Lakers and the Heat respectively but I'll always like those guys.

Oh and the Suns are the ideal place for JO. Let's hope that their medical stuff can do their miracle.

I wish I felt the same way. I am not trying to be patronizing, I really mean that.

JO is done id be surprised if he played more than 20 games next season.

i'm honestly suprised anybody wanted him and wasn't forced into retirement. You would think that there would be several undrafted rookies that could be more effective than JO

If you are talking about a highly pressurized oxygen rich environment for the purposes of promoting physical healing, that would be a hyperbaric chamber.

Having JO associated with a hyperbolic chamber conjures an image in my mind of a device that is promoted over and over as having capabilities which in reality it never really measures up to no matter how many different tweaks it undergoes.

That is nearly priceless irony IMO, and I thank you for the opportunity to :lmao:

Maybe their great medical staff can squeeze another year or two out of JO. I still would like to see him retire a Pacer even if it is just a one day contract.

A "Phoenix" joke ..... right?

I guess all old people either end up in either Florida or Arizona.

He's such a smart defender and strong team guy that he's got value a younger guy won't have, assuming he can stay on the court. I thought he played really well for Boston when he could get on the court.

Actually, this is the hyperbolic chamber: (Anyone watched DBZ?)
