Shaquille O’Neal absolutely hates Dwight Howard. Nobody can really point to an exact reason why.
O’Neal, who won three titles with the Lakers from 2000 through 2002 while taking home the Finals MVP award on each occasion, recently took to ‘The Big Podcast with Shaq,’ and blasted Dwight for acting like he was the star of the team.
“You know what I don’t like as a player? Its a lot of (Lakers) players on their little Instagram bragging like they were the reasons they got the championship. I ain’t gon’ say no names.” O’Neal mentioned on The Big Podcast With Shaq.
“I know you know who I’m talking about. Stop it. Frontrunner. Bandwagon jumper. Stop it.” he added. “Post one pic and sit your a** down.”
Players like JR Smith, Quinn Cook and Dwight Howard all went to Instagram to celebrate with fans, popping champagne, joking and laughing, but Shaq pretty much made it clear it was about Dwight when he began mocking the “follow your dreams” part of Howard’s emotional post-game speech.
Howard averaged 5.8 points and 4.6 rebounds per game during the 2020 playoffs.
