O'Neal also phoned into Boston sports radio WEEI (850 AM), where he talked about his final season in Boston and how much of a factor injuries were in Boston's early exit.

"I think if everything goes right [Boston can contend for a title next season]," said O'Neal. "A lot of people weren’t talking about it, but Kevin [Garnett] was very banged up. He never complained. Also a great player, a future Hall of Famer. A lot players were banged up. Paul [Pierce] was banged up there at the end. We just couldn’t get it going."
