Lakers Star Trying To Fight Shaquille O’Neal In Video

NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal has played for six franchises during his legendary NBA career that spanned 20 years. He is one of the greatest to step foot on the court. He has been blasting Dwight Howard, another former Lakers center, with criticism. It is noted that Howard is much more of a lover than a fighter, and he seems to be the type who wants people to love him and give him recognition. He made it clear that he doesn’t want to have any type of feud with the four-time champion.



Dwight Howard challenges Shaquille O’Neal

During a recent sit-down interview with Shannon Sharpe, former Los Angeles Lakers big man Dwight Howard challenged Lakers legend Shaquille O’Neal to a wrestling match.

“Shaq also is a big wrestling fan,” Sharpe pitched. “Shaq, Dwight, 2023 SummerSlam — winner gets the Superman nickname.”

Howard listened with a smile on his face:

“I like it,” he said. “… Guess what? It’s even bigger. WrestleMania is in L.A. this year. Who the king of L.A.? Let’s go Shaq!”

Howard recently answered back to Shaq on a recent episode of the podcast “All The Smoke:”

“I was thinking he wanna fight or something because every time it was something on TV or somebody would say something,” said Howard. “‘No, I don’t think so. The Lakers got 5 Hall of Famers. No, no, no, no, only four, he’s not one, don’t put him in there. No, don’t do that, no.”‘

He made it clear that he doesn’t want to have any type of feud with the four-time champion:

“I never had no issues with Shaq,” he continued. “I never wanted to be like Shaq, but I enjoy watching Shaq do what he do. I think he’s the most dominant player to ever play. There’s no player who dominated like Shaq. I’m like, why is he hating on me? He should be happy that somebody is trying to follow in his footsteps.”

Howard further stated that he has tried to reach out to O’Neal in order to mend the relationship. He said:

“‘I reached out to try to work out with him, do business, whatever it may be because I ain’t got no bad blood with Shaq, but it just seemed like it’s always something between me and him,” Howard said. “Even now, the stuff I was just saying about the Hall of Fame s**t, that happened this season. ‘I can’t watch the Lakers,’ I bet he watch Laker games this year cause I ain’t on the team.”
