Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard doesn't care what Shaquille O'Neal says after the former Laker said both Andrew Bynum and Brook Lopez are the true big men in the league.
"I don't care what Shaq says," Howard told reporters via ESPN. "Shaq played the game. He's done. He's gone. It's time to move on."
"He hated the fact when he played that the older guys were talking about him and how he played and now he's doing the exact same thing," Howard said. "Just let it go. There's no sense for him to be talking trash to me. He did his thing in the league. He's one of the most dominant players to ever play the game. Just sit back and relax. You did your thing. Your time is up. So, I don't really care. I don't really care. He can say whatever he wants to say."
"I have respect for him and what he did for basketball. That's it. Like I said, he's already did his thing. He played. When my time is up, there's going to be somebody else who can do everything I can do, and probably do it better. Instead of me talking about him, I'll do my job to try to help him to get to where I'm at. I think that's what guys who have done it before us should do."
O'Neal made his comments last week during a round table discussion with fellow TNT analysts, he said:
"We as players, we always watch people before us," O'Neal said. "When I came in it was Patrick Ewing and Hakeem Olajuwon, guys who played like true centers who played inside. What we have now are centers that are going to the European style, which is a lot of pick-and-roll. Dwight Howard, who's a pick-and-roll player, some people say he's the best center in the league, but me being an old-school center, I'm going to go with Robin Lopez and Andrew Bynum because they play with their back to the basket."
