The Intern on: A Fallen Star

by Dan Bilicki In: Basketball

Sitting out the rest of the season to rest ‘is a prime option for me.’ Spoken like a true winner. So the Jermaine O’Neal chronicles continue. Must be nice to be the seventh highest paid player in the NBA at $19 million per season and elect to ‘rest’ your bruised knee for the remainder of the season. It clearly seems that JO is unhappy with his current situation in Indy. But in all honestly, who cares. This team has been irrelevant ever since Ron Artest single-handedly destroyed the once-proud franchise during the brawl at the Palace of Auburn Hills. In the past three seasons since that infamous night, JO has missed 90 games due to illness, injury and suspension. Jermaine O’Neal, once 6 time all-star and easily one of the top players in the NBA, is now treading in the abyss of Shawn Kemp-ville. If anything Isiah should make a move for him so he can be with all the other bad contracts. Intern Out.
