Brian Shaw Rumors

All NBA Players

When Lue did get physical once—with none other than O’Neal—it was in defense of another teammate. As Shaw tells it, the Lakers had just lost to the San Antonio Spurs, and Devean George had made a key mistake down the stretch, sending O’Neal into a rage. “Shaq was standing over Devean’s locker and he was physically beating Devean up,” Shaw recalled. “I said, ‘Man, what are you doing? He’s a young player. He made mistakes. But that’s not why we lost the game.’ I said, ‘If you would have used some of that energy that you’re using pushing him around and boxed out Malik Rose, he wouldn’t have gotten 10 offensive rebounds against us, and maybe we would have won the game because of that.'”
