When Shaquille O’Neal  and Jermaine O’Neal  suit up for the Celtics  next season, there will be some familiarity with their new teammates on the court. Both played with Ray Allen , Kevin Garnett  and Paul Pierce  in the 2004 and 2005 NBA All-Star Games.
In 2004, Pierce (Celtics) and Jermaine O’Neal (Pacers) represented the East while Garnett (Timberwolves ), Allen (SuperSonics), and Shaquille O’Neal (Lakers) played for the West. Shaq (24 points, 11 rebounds) took home MVP honors as the West won, 136-132 , in Los Angeles.
The following year, Shaquille O’Neal changed conferences and joined Pierce and Jermaine O’Neal on the East team as a member of the Heat. Garnett and Allen played for the West. Allen led all players with 17 points and Jermaine O’Neal tied MVP Allen Iverson  with 15 for the East. The East won, 125-115 , in Denver.
Check out the video of Garnett and Shaq from the 2004 All-Star Game:
