The Boston Celtics have some big personalities on their roster this year. The addition of Shaquille O’Neal has really put them over the top, whether you appreciate his antics or not. It remains to be seen if the egos of these veterans will translate into a winning team. One thing’s for sure: their antics — whether positive or negative — are going to be solid gold for the media.
It looks like Nate Robinson is really starting to come into his own with the team, specifically with regard to Shaq. We all remember the Shrek and Donkey duo of Robinson and Glen Davis that emerged during the 2010 postseason. Robinson already seems to share a similar dynamic with Shaq, as he’s been treating him like an older brother that he has no choice but to annoy. That’s certainly evident in the picture of Nate feeding Shaq a cookie while The Big Shamrock was asleep. Check out the video of Nate Robinson dunking on Shaq during practice:
It’s nothing like the feat Nate pulled off during the dunk contest when he somehow cleared Dwight Howard, but it’s pretty funny to watch. The best part is how he runs away afterward like Shaq is going to put a pounding on him if he catches him (which he won’t). The 2010-2011 Celtics should be making for plenty of on-the-court and off-the-court Sportscenter moments this season. If the on-the-court side isn’t working out, expect the off-the-court horsing around to be the first thing everyone points to.
