Ha Ha Ha.
Shaq should shut up. He seems to hate the fact that he stayed in the league to long and everyone knew it. His defence mechanism for that is to trash other players.
Great player when he was younger. His last couple of years were a bit of a travesty. He never learned how to be second string.
Robin Lopez?? Even if he did mean Brook Lopez, that entire comment makes Shaq look like a little cry-baby.
Brook Lopez is a putz. And so is Retired-Shaq.
It is pretty funny just how similar their careers have been
-both drafted by Orlando
-both made it to the finals and lost with that team
-both wanted off that team, and ended up with the Lakers
-both run with the Superman moniker
-both have an almost identical style of play
-both have (or had anyways) a fun loving, joking style of approach to the media
If players "always watch people before us" - isn't Dwight the epitome of that?
I like Shaq, I think he is the most dominant player in history, but, what I can only define as jealousy, is making him look dumber than a brick wall.
Maybe that's why Shaq hates Dwight, he reminds him too much of David Robinson
Apparently upset with the Admiral for his tepid response to O'Neal's autograph request years earlier, Shaq referred to him as ''Punk Ass David Robinson'' in his book Shaq Talks Back. O'Neal also wrote that he wanted to dominate Robinson on the court ''because I got tired of the goody-two-shoes image he was throwing out there
Dwight has a dominating type presence, but plays with what Shaq keeps calling 'European style of play." I think that could be a reason why Shaq hates Dwight. Dwight just doesn't use his strengths enough.
And because this thread is about guys who cant shoot freethrows, have you seen deandres jordans percentage in the preseason? he's 1for18
Shaq no doubt was the most dominant big man of his time when in his prime, and he was pretty good for a sound bite when he was playing. The worst thing is that we have to watch him try to be a commentator and make droning statements in his hulk monotone. I take solace in watching Barkley jab him constantly on Inside the NBA. I give Shaq another year or two before they toss him off that panel.
