C's still have Shaq, Garnett and Big Baby. Still think they're bigger AND tougher than Heat. Now they're also more athletic. I like the deal from the perspective of Boston looking at getting younger and more athletic and I like Jeff Green.
Jermaine O'Neal is still on life support at the Boston Medical Center as well. They might be able to wheel him out there for a game or two in the playoffs to guard Bosh.
