The Boston Celtics have been shaken by the Ime Udoka cheating controversy. There is no doubt that the players are worried about the future given that the team will be playing without its head coach this season. Many experts are engaged in weighing in on what Udoka may or may not have done in connection to his acts.
Shaquille O’Neal won’t be taking part in this conversation, it turns out. Shaq frequently expresses strong opinions about basketball, yet there are some debates he would prefer to avoid. The Lakers star said he has made some bad mistakes in his previous relationships and that he cannot judge Udoka during his appearance on The Big Podcast with Shaq.
I am going to step down from this conversation. I was a serial cheater. It would be crazy and blasphemous for me to get up here and say, ‘Boom, boom, bam.’ I can’t do that. I know these guys personally. I know they’re going through a lot because I went through a lot.
Shaq could have chosen the easy route and roasted the Celtics coach, so it’s good to see him be so forthright about this. Either way, there are a lot of moving parts in this story. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
