The legendary NBA star Shaquille O’ Neal seemingly took a shot at NBA legend LeBron James with an Instagram post. He dropped a picture of a dream 3v3 match with Shaq on one team and James on the other. He wrote a cheeky caption indicating that he would win the contest. He wrote:
“you already know my answer”
Shaquille O’ Neal reacts to G.O.A.T. debate
Los Angeles Lakers legend Shaquille O’Neal shared his reaction to Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green saying that LeBron James is the G.O.A.T. (greatest of all time) over Michael Jordan:
“I like Draymond, that’s his opinion,” O’Neal said. “I like people when they have opinions in this world. You know, the problem we have is when some certain person has an opinion and you don’t like it.”
O’Neal didn’t agree with Green, but he didn’t lay into the Warriors forward either.
“I’m not going to go off,” O’Neal said. “That’s his opinion. My guy is Dr. J (Julius Erving) slash Mike. That’s my guy.”
Jordan’s resume is unmatched. The Chicago Bulls legend has been a 14-time All-Star and five-time MVP during his storied career. He is a Hall of Famer, won 10 scoring titles, six NBA titles and was named NBA Finals MVP six times. For his career, Jordan averaged 30.1 points, 6.2 rebounds and 5.3 assists per game while shooting 49.7 percent from the field.
O’Neal was actually fortunate enough to compete against both Jordan and James during his impressive NBA career, and he was teammates with James for a short period on the Cleveland Cavaliers.
