Shaquille O’Neal is often the focus of fun NBA media segments. Thanks to his electric personality and strong sense of humor, the guy makes things pretty fun for those who see him on TV.
However, of late, O’Neal has been the subject of both laughter and criticism as the NBA community reacted to his rather bizarre mistake …
Julius Randle has an MVP-worthy campaign in New York, so the fact that Shaq confuses him with the now-retired Zach Randolph isn’t exactly a good thing.
Shaq is great to watch and has been a staple of the NBA media for years. However, recently he has been embroiled in various scandals including his interview with Donovan Mitchell, his words about Rudy Gobert and the many fans who question his knowledge of the game.
In this latest example, it is definitely an eyebrow raise not to know the name of such a prominent NBA player and could suggest that O’Neal is a little behind in terms of his familiarity with the current NBA.
Whether or not we can expect an answer from Julius, he has other concerns now. While he tries to turn the Knicks into a successful postseason run, he will do his best to get the job done.
Still, he could use Shaq’s diss as a little extra motivation.
