Jermaine O'Neal tweets support for the Celtics

Jermaine O'Neal has played for the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat, but on Saturday there was no mistaking who he is supporting in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

Wishing the green and white luck tonight down in miami! I wish I was able to see the game tonight but I'm sure the out come will be great! Jermaine O'Neal (@jermaineoneal) June 9, 2012

O'Neal played for the Heat during the 2009 and 2010 seasons, then signed with the Celtics in the summer of 2010. He appeared in 49 games for the Cs over two seasons before undergoing season-ending wrist surgery in March. He was waived by the Celtics in April to make room on the roster for Sean Williams.

Following the Celtics Game 6 loss to the Heat on Thursday, O'Neal also took to Twitter to express his appreciation for the fans who stayed the entire game to support their home team.

Its a lot of great fan bases in the nba, but celtics fans showed a lot of class and that chant will energize the guys for game 7! Jermaine O'Neal (@jermaineoneal) June 8, 2012
