Well, one specific NBA fan shot off a hot take at Shaq, and the NBA legend responded in epic fashion.

Shaq didn’t hold back one bit, and he has every reason to be upset. The argument will forever be had, but nobody can deny how unreal Shaq’s numbers were during those years.
SHAQ in the NBA Finals:
2000 – 38 PPG, 16.7 RPG, 2.7 BPG & 2.3 APG.
2001 – 33 PPG, 15.8 RPG, 4.8 APG & 3.4 BPG.
2002 – 36.3 PPG, 12.3 RPG, 3.8 APG & 2.8 BPG.

Yeah, those are impressive numbers all the way around.
Kobe and Shaq needed each other back then, and the former Lakers big man said it himself: “no person can win without another star.”
For what it’s worth, the fan has yet to respond to Shaq, and he probably won’t be able to.
