Shaq Bashes LeBron, Howard And More In Upcoming Book
Shaquille O’Neal has been making headlines recently with news of his autobiography which is on the way entitled, Shaq Uncut: My Story.
Shaq already released an excerpt where he talked about wanting to kill his former Laker teammate Kobe Bryant for going to the media with talk about Shaq’s weight and work ethic.
And now he’s giving details about his times with the Cleveland Cavaliers and what it was like dealing with LeBron James and his coach’s favoritism.
“I remember one day in a film session LeBron didn’t get back on defense after a missed shot. Mike Brown didn’t say anything about it.
He went to the next clip and it was Mo Williams not getting back and Mike was saying, ‘Yo, Mo, we can’t have that. You’ve got to hustle a little more.’
So Delonte West is sitting there and he’s seen enough and he stands up and says, ‘Hold up, now. You can’t be pussyfooting around like that. Everyone has to be accountable for what they do, not just some (of) us.’
“Mike Brown said, ‘I know, Delonte. I know.’ Mike knew Delonte was right.”
O’Neal ties Brown’s reluctance to check Bron to his present job as Laker coach and he notes that Kobe will be in charge of the team. As for Delonte, we know how he took out his frustration.
The Diesel then comments on the Superman clone himself, Dwight Howard. Shaq never really liked Dwight and now claims that the kid better win some rings in the next few seasons and he has a point if you ask me.
“Dwight Howard is by himself. If he doesn’t get four rings, I’ll be disappointed in him. There’s no one for him to go up against,” O’Neal says.
“When I was playing I had (Patrick) Ewing in his prime. I had Rik Smits, Arvydas Sabonis, Alonzo Mourning, Dikembe Mutumbo. I had Vlade Divac, Kevin Duckworth. I caught some of David Robinson. (Greg) Ostertag. Guys with size. Now, I couldn’t name five centers.”
True that. Well I don’t know about Ostertag and Kevin Duckworth but I get his point. What do you think of Shaq’s bold statements?
