Shaq made headlines last week when he came out and said that LSU Women's Basketball star Angel Reese could "probably be the greatest athlete (male and female) to come out of LSU Sports."

TMZ spoke with former Lolo Jones this week, who thinks Shaq needs to pump the breaks.

"Shaq knew what he was doing," Jones said. "Shaq's just bored. He's coming off hip surgery. He's chilling at home. I think Shaq, honestly, is high on some pain medicines. The list is so big with LSU."

"So, for Shaq to have the audacity to say 'she's the best ever,'" Jones continued, "I'm like, 'Bro, chill on the pain meds,' because that list is arduous. So long."

"We're not hating on Angel. We love to see it. She's cooking. Let her keep cooking. But I'm telling you, LSU track and field is the powerhouse for that university."

Athlete usually discounts learned skills and just goes to your ability to run, jump, change direction, eye hand coordination, etc. So strictly going by that definition, most of our male athlete's would be greater. Even if you are going on athlete plus learned skills, I can think of dozens of male basketball players who were better. I mean Pete Maravich, Chris Jackson, Bob Petit, and even Shaq himself. Get serious Shaq.

LOLO is 100% correct. Miracle Mike Miley is LSU's best two-sport athlete. I don't know if that makes him the best athlete ever but he has to be front and center in any conversation on the matter. Starting QB on a successful football team and was a first-round selection in the MLB draft. Athletes like that are rare.

Lolo Jones got her feelings hurt. She evidently thinks she should be the GOAT.
Check your ego Lolo it’s way out of line.

About 10 minutes of Shaq Diesel in that tiny hole and she would be speaking another language.

Alvin Dark would like a word, but USL can claim him too due to WWII. Dark was a multi sport athlete and excelled. Major league hall of famers said Dark should be in HoFame but his military service held him back.

She is 100% right. LSU has been in competitive athletics since 1890 so about 20,000 athletes have participated here. Of those 90% of the male athletes are better than Reese. Female I would say with t&f, volleyball,gymnastics, basketball, swimming, tennis & basketball she would be in the top 20% maybe. So Shaq says things because he bored & a little dumb on this one

Excuse me what? She was a first team all American….. it’s incomprehensible to say 90% of male athletes are “better than her”, they certainly not more decorated.

While I agree with some of what she’s saying, she’s gonna regret calling out Shaq on this topic.

Sara Finnegan and Lolo both were easily better athletes. As other posters noted so was Augustus. Hell, Augustus wasn’t the best WBB player either from that perspective. I would take Joyce Walker and White over her. Both of them played for the Harlem Globetrotters.

If Angel was the single greatest player, she would’ve brought Maryland to the national championship ship in the years before - this lsu win was a team effort, and I think Lolo is right

With that perspective, Burrow isn’t either since he didn’t lead the Butteyes to a title.

Hmmm...first time I've heard her speak. She doesn't sound too crazy.

Do they have Pro T&F in this country? That fan base has to be smaller than the WNBA, huh? But I'm just guessing here.

Agreed with her completely until she got to the track & field part at the end. In reality, there's no way to say who's the GOAT athlete at LSU as there is far too many super greats!
