Shaq is using a swipe at Kevin Durant that is just about as vicious as the 1 that he took at Brad Miller back in the working day.
The retired Basketball Corridor of Famer tore into the Brooklyn Nets star Durant in an appearance this week on “The Wealthy Eisen Present.” O’Neal was significant of Durant for wanting out of the crew he primarily aided establish.
“When you place a household together, you should really stay in it,” said O’Neal of the former MVP Durant. “You have been the architect. You employed another architect [James Harden]. And now the other architect is in Philadelphia.
“You, as a chief, should really make it function,” O’Neal additional. “But you really don’t want to make it perform, I guess you’re gonna purchase one more home. You know he’s in all probability striving to get to a contender. It’s simpler that way.”
O’Neal raises some great factors here. For a person, Durant hand-picked the Nets franchise, hand-picked his head mentor (Steve Nash) and hand-picked his teammates (Harden, Kyrie Irving, and some others)…only to go managing for the backdoor after adversity strike. Even softer is that Durant detailed the Phoenix Suns and the Miami Heat amongst his most popular trade destinations…teams that were being currently at the extremely top of their respective conferences previous time.
These feedback from O’Neal are comparable to what a well known colleague of his explained about Durant even just before Durant asked for a trade from Brooklyn. Whilst Durant’s god-tier video game speaks for itself, his inclination to consider the easy way out instead of weathering the storm correct exactly where he is will only go on to entice much more criticism.
