Shaquille O’Neal wants it known. He’s absolutely in love with Northeast Ohio.
‘’I’m having a fabulous time in Cleveland,’’ O’Neal said Wednesday.
And a happy Shaq could very well be a motivated Shaq as he looks at the possibility of getting his fifth championship ring.
Since he went down with a thumb injury and had surgery on March 1, he’s taken off a substantial amount of weight.
‘’I knew it was vital for us for me to come back better so, I just took the initiative and changed everything,’’ O’Neal said.
So far the season has been everything he expected, he said.
‘’I knew it was going to be great because I got the call from ‘Bron. Bron said: ‘’We need you. We’re going to make a trade for you and everything is going to be good. It’s just been living up there having a great time, actually one of the greatest times of my life.’’
Although the Cavs’ top priority this off season is signing LeBron James, O’Neal said he wouldn’t mind being in the team’s plans, also.
‘’If they want me back, yes. I’m coming back. People don’t bother me. It’s quiet. I’m having a great time.’’
