  • Shaquille O’Neal is one of the biggest stars the NBA has even seen.
  • But the Basketball Hall of Famer is also known for his extreme pettiness when it comes to criticizing current NBA players.
  • He was back at it again recently, taking direct aim at Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert.

Shaq has never been one to mince words.

Whether it was in his playing days or as an analyst with TNT, the Big Diesel is always one to say what’s on his mind. Now, he’s once again making headlines for this thoughts on current NBA players. Particularly, he’s taking shots at Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert.

Speaking on his show “The Big Podcast”, the Big Shaqtus had the following to say when discussing why he goes after modern players:

Shaq didn’t specify whether he had specific beef with Gobert or if or the French big man just caught a stray, but those are some pretty harsh words. They also didn’t sit well with some current NBA players. None bigger than Kevin Durant.

To which Shaq snapped back immediately.

O’Neal and his NBA on TNT co-hosts are regularly at the center of attention. But NBA fans seem split on Shaq’s take this time around. Though many just had a simple message, stop hating.

Gobert is just the latest subject of Shaq’s ire. His longstanding feud with Dwight Howard is NBA lore and he’s regularly been hard on Sixers superstar Joel Embiid.

While O’Neal is clearly an all-time great NBA player, he’s clearly the all-time great NBA hater as well.
