When Shaquille O’Neal [1] and Jermaine O’Neal [2] suit up for the Celtics [3] next season, there will be some familiarity with their new teammates on the court. Both played with Ray Allen [4], Kevin Garnett [5] and Paul Pierce [6] in the 2004 and 2005 NBA All-Star Games.

In 2004, Pierce (Celtics) and Jermaine O’Neal (Pacers) represented the East while Garnett (Timberwolves [7]), 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 [8], 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 [9] with 15 for the East. The East won, 125-115 [10], in Denver.

Check out the video of Garnett and Shaq from the 2004 All-Star Game:
