Shaquille O’Neal Had Blunt Message For LeBron This Week

Shaquille O’Neal is one of the many analysts who delivered a special message for Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James following his failed season with the franchise.

The NBA legend responded to the comments LeBron made regarding the injuries players suffered in the playoffs. Let’s just say he didn’t hold back.

LeBron blamed the increased number of injuries in the postseason on the tight schedule. According to him, the regular season started a little too early. Players had just finished the 2020 playoffs and they had to return to the floor again.

“They all didn’t wanna listen to me about the start of the season,” LeBron tweeted. “I knew exactly what would happen.”

“These injuries isn’t just ‘PART OF THE GAME,’” he added. “It’s the lack of PURE RIM REST rest before starting back up.”

Big O’Neal doesn’t miss a chance to deliver a message for LeBron James

O’Neal provided a blunt response to these comments. We saw this coming.

“When you’re living in a world where 40 million people have been laid off and I’m making $200 million, you won’t get no complaining from me,” the former Lakers star told CNBC on Tuesday. “I’d play back to back to back to back to back.”

The big man also added that he didn’t want share any disrespect to LeBron. However he disagrees with the comments the Laker made.

“I don’t complain and make excuses, because real people are working their tail off and all we gotta do is train two hours a day and then play a game for two hours at night and make a lot of money … So my thought process is a little different,” O’Neal said.

We bet LeBron won’t like any of this. Players struggled with too many injuries in the postseason and superstars struggled to stay healthy. Some of the guys won’t agree with O’Neal.

The Brooklyn Nets had too many injured players on the roster. Most NBA teams had the same problem in the regular season. Hopefully, things will look much better in 2022. Players need to stay healthy to make the playoffs and win a title with their teams.
