Shaquille O'Neal RumorsAll NBA Players
Shaquille O’Neal got an ENTIRE nightclub to chant “Barkley Sucks” during a DJ gig in D.C. — and the trolling didn’t stop there! Shaq was performing at Echostage as DJ Diesel — when he decided to clown his “Inside the NBA” co-host with a giant projection on the back wall that read, “Barkley Has NO Ring!”
Josh Robbins: Mohamed Bamba during his introductory press conference: “The first thing I did was call Shaq and ask him, ‘Can I have his Orlando home?’ He hasn’t replied yet. So you guys wish me luck with that.”
Hall of Fame center Shaquille O’Neal says he spent the past few seasons of his career chasing championships. He doesn’t believe LeBron James should do the same thing. “My problem toward the end of my career was I was trying to shut everybody up and I was greedy [for more championships],” O’Neal said in an interview with ESPN at a pre-draft event on Friday evening for teens from the Y in Brooklyn.
Shaquille O’Neal: “After I got to three [titles], everybody was saying I couldn’t get another. So I got four. After I got the fourth, they were saying I couldn’t get another one. So I was trying to make quick stops to get it. Phoenix, Cleveland, Boston.”
“LeBron’s book is already set,” O’Neal said. “He done already passed up legends; he done already made his mark — he has three rings. His mentality now is probably: I want to get four before [Golden State Warriors guard] Steph [Curry] does. That’s probably his mentality now. But if I was him, I wouldn’t be trying to get four, five and six because it ain’t going to matter. It’s just something else to talk about, something else to add to the pages. He’s a legend, talked about as who is the best between he and Michael Jordan, so he’s set.”
Joel Embiid had an incredibly promising season, carrying the 76ers to levels only dreamed of by fans only a few years ago. So, while we all trust the process, TNT’s Shaqtin’ A Fool reminds us all that with greatness often comes great bloopers. And so Embiid, who had just a few embarrassing moments this year, is the program’s MVP this year.
