In recent news, former Lakers center Shaquille O’Neal provided the entire world his opinion on Dwight Howard. Shaq compared the younger Superman to Nets center Brook Lopez.
In a report by the LA Times, Kobe Bryant was asked for his thoughts and concerns about the mini-beef between the old school Superman and the new school Superman in Dwight Howard. Kobe would respond by saying,
I really don’t have a take. Shaq gets paid to make opinions so I can’t tell him to shut up. That’s his job. That’s what he does. My primary concern is the big fella here now in Dwight. I think he’s going to do just fine with his legacy for the Lakers.
For all you Laker newcomers, Kobe had his share of disagreements with Shaq when they were teammates. Kobe obviously does not want Shaq entering his life again and cause a disruption. The Black Mamba has one goal and that is to win a championship with Dwight Howard as his new big man.
On the other hand, Shaq seems to have learned well from former NBA coach Phil Jackson when using the media to talk a little smack.
