Somebody must be trying to force a buyout so he can join Miami.

Jermaine immediately reported severe pain in his shouting wrist, and will be out for 6-8 paychecks.

Let him collect his few remaining NBA paychecks from the Maricopa County Jail.

No sympathy for the Phoenix organization whatsoever.

Not sure what their aim is right now.

Trotting out a bunch of sloppy-bodied basketball players isn't a good look to me. Everyone in that team bar Shannon brown and Gortat needs to find the weights room.

This situation is funny to me because I hung out with Jermaine Saturday & he was very candid while talking about alot of things. He says he absolutely loved the playing for the Celtics & wouldn't mind playing there again. He says the injury that kept him out was overblown just to keep him away from the team because he & Doc got into a physical altercation & that Doc wanted no more parts of him. He says he was sorry about it & he & Doc has since appologized to each other. But the player & coach relationship had soured enough to where he could no longer be a member in that locker room. But what I think is the funniest thing is that he also said "I will only be in Phoenix another week maybe if things go right" so I asked "Are you hearing your name in trades or something?" He said "Not really that but I got some things in play if things go right" and of course me not wanting to beat a dead horse I tried to figure those things out myself. But starting a profanity laced tirade at the front office escaped my imagination! Jermaine is such a nice guy, very polite & approachable guy, that I'm assuming he went in & asked for his release & the Suns frontmen said no we are not going to do that & he then got angry & his temper got the best of him. Maybe I'm being biased because he liked me enough to wanna be my friend & hangout away from the ballcourt but I have encountered many NBA cats & he's the 2nd coolest guy I've ever met only behind Shawn Marion. Very down to earth superstars or former how ever you wanna look at it. He really wants a title before he retires & he said as much & he was only using Phoenix to show he was healthy again & they were supposed to be his stepping stone to flip to a contender later. Looks like I may get to keep a friend for a year though now that Phoenix may not accommodate him. :)

So he's a nice guy even though he physically assualted his teams head coach and by your own accounts just created a situation (expletive laced tirade) to get out from the contract he signed, to play for a contender? Sounds about right...     ::)

I wouldn't need to show pics to prove anything to people I don't know. But its a true account of Saturday & night. Im tied into the Suns & D-Backs player security, I guess its up to you to believe or not but nothing I ever said has been a fabrication. I was also the 1st to break story on Gabe Pruitt's nightlife the morning of a Sunday game years back. The kid hung out til 6am & had tipoff at 11 or noon I believe only to find out that's how Gabe got down later. Why did I know? I was in charge of Gabe that latenight/morning. I only report Celtics related stuff regarding the NBA players I know, because this is Celtics blog not Suns/DBacks blog. If it doesn't contain Celtic info I wouldn't report it. Didn't I also report Shawn Marion would never be a Celtic years ago when all the trade fodder cirlced around him? I for 1 knew from him telling me hated the C's with a passion growing up, & thats why he always had his best games against the Celtics. No fabrications just facts! I got the job I have now partly because of Shawn Marion, he & my best friend Gerald Brown "former Suns player" where next door neighbors & Shawn thru my connection with Gerald & Mike Bibby had me around so much the Suns security reitred detectives & chiefs of Phoenix hired me. Started out as Luis Gonzalez protector in Tucson for Spring training years back, then onto the Suns where I stuck. If you want more information about players or my life i'm more than willing to continue not lying. Lol some of you guys are funny!

I guess if you don't come across as many sports stars as I've been fortunate enough to meet or work for, I guess I can see where this non belief is coming from. But they are humans just like us with more glaring flaws being in the limelight, so when I'm disclosing somewhat personal imformation on C's blog im not weighing whether you guys or girls believe it or not, Im just stating what I saw, seen or heard just as you would. Just thought it was cool that J.O. told me things he didn't really have to & that he actually loved being a Celtic my childhood team since birth was worth reporting to me. TP for Jermaine in my book just for saying that although he gave us close to nothing being hurt most the time.

It's funny, I was reading KG_ended_Bias's post, and I had multiple reactions at once, like "is this guy for real" "is he lying" "wow that's pretty cool", etc.

Then as I continued reading the post, realized you were in Phoenix, thought, "wait, is that the same guy who reported the Gabe Pruitt thing (that I think some people doubted), i totally believe this guy now."

And then you your next post you verified just what I was thinking.

Thanks for the stories. You seem like you're very close with players from what I'm reading.
I could tell you were telling the truth when you went into talking about Gabe Pruitt.

He says the injury that kept him out was overblown just to keep him away from the team because he & Doc got into a physical altercation & that Doc wanted no more parts of him. He says he was sorry about it & he & Doc has since appologized to each other. But the player & coach relationship had soured enough to where he could no longer be a member in that locker room. But what I think is the funniest thing is that he also said "I will only be in Phoenix another week maybe if things go right" so I asked "Are you hearing your name in trades or something?" He said "Not really that but I got some things in play if things go right" and of course me not wanting to beat a dead horse I tried to figure those things out myself. But starting a profanity laced tirade at the front office escaped my imagination! Jermaine is such a nice guy, very polite & approachable guy, that I'm assuming he went in & asked for his release & the Suns frontmen said no we are not going to do that & he then got angry & his temper got the best of him. Maybe I'm being biased because he liked me enough to wanna be my friend & hangout away from the ballcourt but I have encountered many NBA cats & he's the 2nd coolest guy I've ever met only behind Shawn Marion. Very down to earth superstars or former how ever you wanna look at it. He really wants a title before he retires & he said as much & he was only using Phoenix to show he was healthy again & they were supposed to be his stepping stone to flip to a contender later. Looks like I may get to keep a friend for a year though now that Phoenix may not accommodate him. :)
I wouldn't need to show pics to prove anything to people I don't know. But its a true account of Saturday & night. Im tied into the Suns & D-Backs player security, I guess its up to you to believe or not but nothing I ever said has been a fabrication. I was also the 1st to break story on Gabe Pruitt's nightlife the morning of a Sunday game years back. The kid hung out til 6am & had tipoff at 11 or noon I believe only to find out that's how Gabe got down later. Why did I know? I was in charge of Gabe that latenight/morning. I only report Celtics related stuff regarding the NBA players I know, because this is Celtics blog not Suns/DBacks blog. If it doesn't contain Celtic info I wouldn't report it. Didn't I also report Shawn Marion would never be a Celtic years ago when all the trade fodder cirlced around him? I for 1 knew from him telling me hated the C's with a passion growing up, & thats why he always had his best games against the Celtics. No fabrications just facts! I got the job I have now partly because of Shawn Marion, he & my best friend Gerald Brown "former Suns player" where next door neighbors & Shawn thru my connection with Gerald & Mike Bibby had me around so much the Suns security reitred detectives & chiefs of Phoenix hired me. Started out as Luis Gonzalez protector in Tucson for Spring training years back, then onto the Suns where I stuck. If you want more information about players or my life i'm more than willing to continue not lying. Lol some of you guys are funny!

Its a thing people say on the internet to stories that are improbable. http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/pics-or-it-didnt-happen
I guess if you don't come across as many sports stars as I've been fortunate enough to meet or work for, I guess I can see where this non belief is coming from. But they are humans just like us with more glaring flaws being in the limelight, so when I'm disclosing somewhat personal imformation on C's blog im not weighing whether you guys or girls believe it or not, Im just stating what I saw, seen or heard just as you would. Just thought it was cool that J.O. told me things he didn't really have to & that he actually loved being a Celtic my childhood team since birth was worth reporting to me. TP for Jermaine in my book just for saying that although he gave us close to nothing being hurt most the time.

That's cool. See if you can get JO to talk gortat into demanding a trade here  ;)

Yahoo Sports reports Jermaine O'Neal and GM Lance Blanks "engaged in a loud, expletive-laced confrontation on Monday."

O'Neal is lucky he is still playing and should be grateful that Phoenix sign him

Not gonna lie. I would sign JO to play Collins' minutes.

Hard to say this, but, me too.

Absolutely -- J.O'Neal would be a darn fine backup center for the Celtics.

I would love to have him back in that role.

Not for me, I do not want that heartless bum anyways near this team.

Didn't he want a buyout last year so he could go to the Heat?

Immobile.  Poor rebounder.  No offense outside of garbage dunks and wide open 12 footers.  34 years old.

He's defensive specialist Collins in every way.  Except he's actually still good at defense.

J.O. is not the greatest remaining center maybe heading into the market depending on what Phoenix management does with him spouting off. But he is definitely 5 times the player Collins is or ever was prime or present! Jermaine has always been the better player of those 2 so his past prime would be greater than Collins current way past prime.

Will Suns let PF/C Jermaine O'Neal go and if they did would he still be the same without Phoenix's extraordinary training staff that has clearly rejuvenated him?

No one thought he had something left for an 18th season, but clearly he does. A source says that his dispute with GM Lance Blanks was over the fact the Suns plan to diminish his role, something O'Neal did not want to see happen. With the array of teams that could use even the limited minutes O'Neal could provide as a rim protector and finisher -- including his previous team, the Celtics, along with the Heat and Sixers -- Jermaine assuredly would be snapped up if the Suns let him go. But looking at the phenomenal job the Suns' staff does in getting old bones to function like much younger ones -- is it an accident Grant Hill and Steve Nash left and instantly got hurt? -- it has to be a question whether O'Neal will remain spry somewhere else.
