Shaquille O’Neal, a basketball legend, has secured his status as one of the game’s greatest players. He’s also a big pro wrestling fan who’s appeared in both WWE and AEW. Shaq recently stated that the Lakers will “definitely” make the playoffs.
Despite having a 26-30 record and not making any substantial changes ahead of the trade deadline, NBA veteran Shaquille O’Neal believes the Los Angeles Lakers will “definitely” make the playoffs. At his Super Bowl party on Friday, Shaq told TMZ Sports.
“They definitely will make the playoffs.”
“This was one of the hardest franchises I ever had to play for. I remember when I came here, Jerry West said, ‘Look, I know you do movies, I know you do rap albums and all that,’ But, he made me look up [in the rafters] and I seen Wilt [Chamberlain] and Kareem [Abdul-Jabbar] and he said, ‘At the end of this, you’re either going to be a bust or you’re going to be a legend.’ So, those guys have to decide how they want to be remembered.”
The Lakers have been experimenting with benching star point guard Russell Westbrook to close out games in recent games. To make matters worse for the Lakers, their best player, LeBron James, is reportedly considering leaving the team in order to play alongside his kid, Bronny.
The Lakers’ next game is against the Golden State Warriors at 8:30 p.m. ET. Are you awaited to watch it?
