It also appears that he has wasted no time in getting back on the court.

Judging by the pictures, it appears that the “she” O’Neal is referring to is the basketball court.

Of course, even if I’m wrong in that assumption, it’s still great news to hear that O’Neal has been given the OK to resume playing basketball as all of us here at Bruins Nation look forward to him playing next season with the Four Letters across his chest.

Welcome back, Shareef!


Go Bruins!!!
