Shaquille O'Neal posted a video on Tout, which indicates that he is ready to retire after 19 years in the NBA. "We did it, 19 years baby," O'Neal said in the video. "I want to thank you very much. That's why I'm telling you first: I'm about to retire."
O'Neal played 37 games for the Celtics in his one season with the team, but only appeared in one regular season game and two playoff games after February because of an Achilles injury.

The first two months of 2011 haven't been the best for J.D. Drew, which is why Red Sox manager Terry Francona decided to give his right fielder the day off on Wednesday.
"He's just been kind of scuffling a little bit," Francona said before Wednesday's matinee.
Josh Reddick started in place of Drew, who entered Wednesday batting just .228 with three homers and 10 RBIs in the final year of his five-year, $70 million contract.
"Maybe Red will give us a little, sometimes day game after a night game you're looking for some energy, maybe Red will bump into one," Francona said of Reddick. "He's been playing pretty well, maybe just will give us a little boost."
As for Drew, he is just 3-for-19 in his last nine games, giving Francona a reason to sit his starting right fielder.
"I think we keep waiting for that," Francona said, referring to Drew's usual mid-season hot streak....

OK, WEEI.com readers, let's see if you can continue your success predicing the Bruins' results in the Stanley Cup playoffs. Last week, you correctly predicted the Bruins would beat the Lightning in regulation in a close game in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals.

According to a tweet from TSN's Darren Dreger, controversial NHL discipline czar Colin Campbell is stepping down as NHL senior vice president and director of hockey operations, and his likely successor is longtime NHL forward Brendan Shanahan.
Campbell, the father of Bruins forward Gregory Campbell, drew the ire of Bruins fans last year when he decided not to punish Penguins forward Matt Cooke for his blindside hit on Marc Savard that left the Bruins center with a concussion. The league altered its rules after that incident to make it easier to punish such behavior.
Shanahan played 22 seasons in the NHL — with the Devils, Blues, Whalers, Red Wings and Rangers — before retiring in 2009. He is the only NHL player with 600 goals and 2,000 penalty minutes. He has been serving as the league's vice president of hockey and business operations.
