Shaquille O’Neal has never been afraid to speak his mind. It’s made him an interesting figure since his days dating back to college with LSU back in the early 1990’s. It also makes him one interesting dude to follow.
Chiming in on the whole Nick Young and D’Angelo Russell drama unfolding around his former Los Angeles Lakers team, Shaq definitely didn’t hold back:
“Obviously he (Russell) has no street common sense. That’s called snitchin’,” O’Neal said, via the Sporting News. “I wouldn’t have said nothin’. I would have come into the locker room that day and got suspended. I’d have beat the …”
Tell us how you really feel, Mr. O’Neal.
The whole situation stems from Russell posting a video on social media of Young apparently admitting to cheating on his fiance, Iggy Azalea.
The drama has also taken on a life of its own recently with both Young and Russell publicly talking about the situation prior to a game against the Miami Heat on Wednesday (via USA Today).
O’Neal’s comments aren’t necessarily surprising. Since this entire soap opera unfolded, a ton of professional athletes have taken shots at Russell. Meanwhile, Young has remained relatively unscathed despite apparently cheating on his fiance.
What world we live in today, guys and gals.
