Wake up with the Celtics and your daily dose of Irish Coffee ‘€¦

Shaquille O’Neal entered the “Late Show with David Letterman” set wearing a hooded sportcoat, so it was pretty much a success right off the bat. After explaining how he got a cut on his head — banging his dome on a doorway while answering Letterman’s call — he touched on the following subjects:

  • On whether Boston fans love him now: “They do.”
  • On choosing Boston over New York: “I could’ve played in New York for more dough. … I thought we had a better shot at a championship.”
  • On whether he’s ever feared a player: “Never.”
  • On who he’d start a team with: “Historically, I’d probably go with Bill Russell.”
  • On nobody liking the Lakers: “I don’t.”
  • On LeBron James: “He’s a young guy. He’s a fabulous player. … I wish him well. Not too much luck, but I wish him well.”
  • On Pat Riley: [sips water]
  • On Phil Jackson: [claps] “Great guy.”
  • On whether anyone could win 11 titles with his Bulls and Lakers: “I would say yes.”
  • On Kobe Bryant: “Fabulous player. Probably the best player in the league right now.”
  • On Kareem Abdul-Jabbar: “I spent eight years in L.A. and probably only talked to him twice. He’s one of the greatest centers ever.”
  • On Steve Nash: “Great player. Great assist player. Love playing with him.”
  • On Kevin Garnett: “The funniest guy in Boston. He is.”
  • On Charles Barkley: “Probably one of the greatest power forwards to play. He’s a funny guy. He’s going to say what’s on his mind.”
