Shaquille O'Neal Rumors

All NBA Players
But, somewhere you can bet there is somebody trashing his name, downgrading his game, and joining a chorus that this season alone has included a nearly an entire halftime show on TNT when Shaquille O’Neal and Charles Barkley volleyed insults at his effort and motivation. “I think people have a misconception of me,” Whiteside said. “I don’t know what it is, where it is coming from, I really don’t know. But my friends, we talk about it all the time … yesterday, today, tomorrow … it’s always there.”
Twenty-seven years later, the four-time NBA champion with the Los Angeles Lakers and Miami Heat hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony, alongside Mayor Ras Baraka, at an $80 million, 22-story building at 50 Rector Park in the Newark Downtown District. The development, known around town as “Shaq Tower,” is the first high-rise apartment building to join the city’s skyline in more than 50 years. The project came about as a public-private partnership between Shaq, the city, the state of New Jersey, New Brunswick-based Boraie Development and the Goldman Sachs Urban Investment Group. The new tower was also boosted by a $24 million New Jersey Department of Economic Development Urban Transit Hub Tax Credit. The building’s one million square feet of space includes ground-floor retail space and 169 residential units—with monthly rents ranging from $1,800 to $2,895—as well as a gym, co-working lounge, private dining room, sky deck and Amazon lockers.

“I want to be better than Shaq,” Embiid said. “That means I’ve got to win. I mean, if you look at the numbers, I’m up there when it comes to numbers with the best. I think about it. Last year, I averaged 27 [points] and 13 [rebounds]. Shaq, I think he only did it once. That was the MVP year, in 2000, when he was Finals MVP. Because I don’t have a championship on my resume, because I don’t have one or more, people don’t look at it. “A lot of guys don’t do that,” said Embiid, who joined O’Neal and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as the only players in NBA history to have seasons in which they averaged at least 27.5 points, 13.5 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.5 blocks; Abdul-Jabbar did it twice, capturing league MVP honors with those numbers in 1974-75.
