Default Is Jermaine O'Neal pulling a VC?

This guy seems to be playing some un-inspired ball right now. I know he back-tracked on his trade demands but dude probably still wants out.

Why won't I be surprised when he blows up after a trade?

Free JO, Indy!

ps: That Shawne Williams kid is looking pretty good too.

It wouldn't suprise me at all. And he is definitely playing like he couldn't give a damn right now. Bulls will be calling next month. See if something can get done by then.

Yea he looks like crap. I was against trading Bynum and LO for him STRONGLY, but would have done it for just Bynum. Now..not so much.

He's much better than average. It's just that he no longer wants to play in Indy.

He'd be a godsend on the Bulls.

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.

If it's true, the Nets will acquire JO by merely offering Krstic, Jason Collins and a young talented player, maybe Nachbar or Marcus Williams.

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.

He had major off-season knee surgery. He is rehabbing AND playing.

They just upped his minutes and role and every single thing that he, team doctors, coaches, teammates ect have said, say that he is nowhere near 100%.
