It’s not surprise that on the first day of the job Shaq already has threw shade. And who better to take the brutal verbal beatdown than Miami Heat’s Chris Bosh. On his first day as a Turner television broadcaster, and Shaq has already started a fued with one player.
“The Miami Heat, they’ve got a lot of great players, the ‘Big Two.’ They will be back. LeBron James is taking a lot of criticism, but I know LeBron very well. He hears everything that everyone is saying, so I think he’s going to come back and have an MVP year this year.”
The “BIG 2”. Oh dear Shaq. When reminded of Chris Bosh by NBATV co-analyst, Shaq smiled and played the “I’m not starting anything” card.
Pointed out by Travis Houser, With Shaq being former teammates (one year) with Lebron James and Charles Barkley being sponsorship buddies with Dwyane Wade (Shaq’s former teammate too), expect the Miami Heat to be on the tip of the tongue on TNT all next season.
If there isn’t already enough jock riding going on about the Miami Heat and Lebron James, Shaq clearly will just add to the over publicized “BIG 3” who fell short of doing what everyone, even themselves, anticipated.
