Shaquille O’Neal had a legendary career in the NBA and became one of the best big men to ever play the game. The former NBA star now has a role on Inside The NBA where he provides fans with hilarious analysis on some of the league’s best players and makes no secret that Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks is one of his favourites.
In a recent feature by ESPN, Shaq spoke about the modern NBA big man and whether or not he could play in today’s game. These days, even big men are shooting three-pointers which is something Shaq was never able to do consistently. Regardless, Shaq believes he’d be fine in today’s NBA and even compared himself to Giannis.
“I would actually love to play in this NBA,” O’Neal said. “I would bring a little bit more physicality. I would bring my length, I would bring my athletic-ness. So, before you say, ‘Shaq can’t play in this era today,’ I’m already playing. My name is Giannis Antetokounmpo.”
