It might be safe to call the second half of the 2013-14 NBA season the resurgence of one Jermaine O’Neal because, throughout the last week, that seems to be exactly what we’ve been seeing from the Golden State Warriors veteran.
Tonight against the Chicago Bulls, O’Neal made his presence felt in a big way once again as he produced on the defensive end.
After Joakim Noah took the nice pass from Carlos Boozer as seemed destined to hit the easy lay up for two points, O’Neal had other ideas and promptly swatted the ball away from the basket.
For the older folks, it makes us all feel a bit younger again watching O’Neal pull off plays like this, and to this day, it never gets old.
On a serious note, though, O’Neal has been a nice surprise lately for this Warriors team as the postseason is creeping up.
