Shaquille O'Neal has made his dislike of Dwight Howard clear over the years. Now it seems like he's falling off the deep end. In a recent roundtable discussion with NBA.com, Shaq downplayed Howard's ability because he's not a traditional, back to the basket center. He then went on to say the he would take Andrew Bynum and, wait for it, Brooklyn Nets C Brook Lopez over Dwight.
Check the quotes:
“We as players, we always watch people before us. When I came in it was Patrick Ewing and Hakeem Olajuwon, guys who played like true centers who played inside. What we have now are centers that are going to the European style, which is a lot of pick-and-roll. Dwight Howard, who’s a pick-and-roll player, some people say he’s the best center in the league, but me being an old-school center, I’m going to go with Robin Lopez (of course, he meant Brook) and Andrew Bynum because they play with their back to the basket. Like if you want to go to go to flash and dunking and the pick and roll, you gotta go with Dwight Howard, but me, the last true original dundaughta, I’m going with Andrew Bynum and which Lopez? Brook. Brook Lopez."
Shaq should not be allowed to speak on Dwight Howard's game for the rest of his life. We wish TNT would bring C-Webb back.
Do you agree with the Diesel?
