  • Shaq is certainly not shy when it comes to calling out current NBA players on Inside The NBA.
  • The Hall of Fame center recently took a shot at Kevin Durant on social media.
  • Shaq posted a meme about Durant’s “accomplishments” since leaving the Warriors.

Ask any NBA fan — whether they be casual or wildly passionate — and they’ll likely tell you that the Association’s off-the-court drama is often just as, if not more entertaining than the action that actually unfolds on the court

Case in point: what other league has regular beef between players and studio analysts? That’s a unique feature when it comes to the NBA and it only adds to the narrative, and therefore the drama, when the players actually, you know, play the games.

This latest instance, for example, sees two of the greatest players of all time firing shots at each other, as Basketball Hall of Famer and Inside The NBA analyst Shaquille O’Neal took to Instagram to fire shots at Brooklyn Nets forward Kevin Durant.

Shaq fires shots at Kevin Durant’s recent career on his Instagram story

The post, which appeared on Shaq’s Instagram story, showed a picture of Durant on the ground with a list of his accomplishments since he departed Golden State in 2019. The punchline, of course, is that the three-bullet list is empty, suggesting he’s done nothing of note since his title-winning years in the Bay Area.

Shaq’s shot at KD comes as Durant also used social media to (presumably) take a swipe at Minnesota Timberwolves guard Patrick Beverley, who’s spent the last three days at ESPN talking smack about various players.

Perhaps surprisingly, Durant has yet to publicly fire back at Shaq and instead mentioned his name when discussing 1990s NBA centers who would be in MVP conversations if they played today. Maybe Durant is trying out the “kill ’em with kindness” method instead of his usual “scorched Earth” approach.
