Lakers icon Shaq calls out NBA stars amid Patrick Beverley praise


During his unveiling as the latest member of the Los Angeles Lakers, Patrick Beverley was asked to share his thoughts about playing alongside LeBron James and Anthony Davis. In true Pat Bev fashion, the veteran savagely responded by saying that it’s the opposite way around — that LeBron and AD are going to be twiddling with him.

Lakers icon Shaquille O’Neal has nothing but love for Beverley despite his reasonably contentious comments. In accordance with Shaq, this is strictly what the Lakers need without delay (h/t NBA on TNT):

“Stay off my boy Pat,” Shaq said. “I’ve got nothing bad to say about Pat. why? He play the sport prefer it’s imagined to be played. Not these dudes making 200, 300 million and might’t play in any respect.”

Shaq just needed to take a shot at other stars within the NBA who he feels are overpaid. O’Neal became a little bit less cryptic when he called out Utah Jazz fans. Evidently Shaq was referring to Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert — two players that he has criticized heavily up to now:

“After they get traded, y’all talking about. ‘Oh, Shaq hatin.’ Shaq know what the hell he talking about. They why each they a– up out of there.

Yeah, keep in mind that? Utah fans, keep in mind that?”

That’s savage. Shaq then turned his attention back to Beverley, who he feels goes to be critical to the Lakers’ potential success this season:

“Listen, you would like a man like that on the team,” he continued. “A man like that, you don’t tamper with.”

Lakers fans will likely be hoping that Shaq’s statements here come to fruition. Beverley is not any superstar, but he does bring so much to the table. Whether or not it’ll be enough to assist LeBron James and the remaining of the squad to the title, nonetheless, stays to be seen.
