08:11 AM ET 04.12 | Don't expect to see the Big Shamrock in the Celtics' season finale. Celtics president Danny Ainge told the Globe this afternoon that Shaquille O'Neal is unlikely to play in Wednesday's season finale against the New York Knicks but is expected to practice Thursday and be ready for Game 1 of the Celtics' first-round series Saturday or Sunday. O'Neal has been limited to just 37 games this season with various injuries and it's been apparent in recent weeks that the Celtics could use his presence in the middle.

I think my Knicks have had it. They'll put up a fight, but I don't see them advancing past the Celtics. Miami or Chicago yeah, but not the Celtics.

Lol, keep dreaming.

I expect Knicks to beat Celts in 6 or less. It shouldn't get to 7. They're too old and too banged up to keep up with the speed. I expect Billups to dominate Rondo. Celts are done. Giving up perkins is the dumbest move ever...

I was referring to the dream world you live in where the Knicks could beat any of the top teams in the East.

I'll be smelling the coffee when you get bounced in the second round.

First round, second round. Unless you win it all, you're a nobody. If you don't believe me ask the Dallas Mavericks.

The Bulls have the potential, not saying they will, but it's definitely possible. Not so much for the Knicks.

Shaq gets one more game to rest.. then I fully expect him to go out and play or die bleeding on the court. It's his last playoffs series.... ever.

If that doesn't motivate him then I don't know what will

Good morning good people!

Good luck to your Knicks Doc. If the C's don't wake up they have a very good chance at knocking off the C's
