Shaquille O’Neal will step aside for Dwight Howard after all in Sunday’s All-Star Game.
“He’s played a lot more than me and he deserves it.”
However, Shaq will get into the game for a few minutes before giving way to Howard.
East Coach Eddie Jordan said it will depend “on how much Shaq wants to play. We’ll focus on him offensively the fist few plays. We got some young guys then, Dwight Howard, Jermaine O’Neal and Chris Bosh who can play center.”
O’Neal was voted to start the game at center for the East team despite playing in only a handful of games this season.
