WALTHAM — Jermaine O’€™Neal admitted following practice on Monday that he’€™s been a disappointment so far, in part because of injuries that have affected his conditioning.

‘€œIt’€™s been challenging,” O’Neal said of his slew of injuries. “Obviously, the hamstring, the back a little bit, the wrist, now the knee so it’€™s been extremely disappointing for me so far. But obviously, trials and tribulations will make you stronger and you have to take that as you never can be successful if you don’€™t fail. So far, I haven’€™t been able do things out there that I want to do out there.”

The 31-year-old O’Neal, who practiced with the first team and will play on Tuesday in Detroit, was signed in early July to a two-year, $12 million deal. He played in the first two games, scoring just three points, before swelling in his left knee sidelined him for the game against the Knicks last Friday.

‘€œI know the people that are happy about me aren’€™t happy quite yet with what they’€™ve seen but I can guarantee that before the year is over with, they’€™ll be really happy with my play and it’€™s just about finding ways of getting yourself going.’€

Rajon Rondo [1], the Eastern Conference player of the Week for Week 1 after dishing 50 assists in three games, dressed up as Tiger Woods [2] to win the team’€™s award for best Halloween costume on Sunday. ‘€œWe did a little vote on it Rondo won for being Tiger Woods [3],” captain Paul Pierce [4] said. As for the video of Shaquille O’€™Neal as Shaqeeta, his drag costume for Halloween that is making the rounds on the internet and local TV, ‘€œNo, I haven’€™t seen it,” Pierce added. “I’€™ll have to check it out.’€
