Shaq back in market – for new nickname

Now that he’s signed with the Boston Celtics, Shaquille O’Neal is looking for a nickname that will fit in with his new city.

The Celtics’ website trumpeted the signing of ”The Big Shamrock” this week, when O’Neal signed a deal that will reportedly pay him the veterans’ minimum over the next two seasons.

O’Neal wrote on Twitter: ”hello green town. ok what u got 4 nicknames? make um good.”

In a variety of online polls, ”The Big Shamrock” and ”The Big Leprechaun” are leading the way along with ”The Green Monster.” Also receiving votes: ”The Jolly Green Giant,” ”The Shamroq,” ”Red Auershaq,” ”Shaqachusetts” and ”Tip-in O’Neal.”

No word yet from O’Neal on whether he has a preference.

O’Neal has been known as ”Shaq-Daddy,” ”The Big Shaqtus” in Phoenix and ”The Big Witness” in Cleveland.
