why is JO regarded so highly? he's an average power forward in today's league, nothing special
wtf?!?!?! Were not talking about Zack Randolph here. O`neal was a special player. I don`t know what he`s doing. When the C`s played Indy I didn`t even notice him. I have no respect for plyrs like VC(maybe Carter isn`t capable of rising for a big game) who don`t give it there all.
I think that this Jermaine O'neal is just as good as we can get. O'neal already decided to become a face-up jump shooting big man a couple of years ago, his field goal percentage is embarrassingly low for a big man, now he plays like Shawn Kemp after getting fat. Watching the guy who can make hook shots with ease even with his left hand settling for jumpers that have very little chance of going in, given that he's got good footwork and size to work effectively in the paint, it's painful and pathetic.
