Shaquille O’Neal has never been shy about how he feels about Dwight Howard. So now the Big Diesel shared his thoughts on Howard heading to LA...
quote:

“I have three sons, and I always tell them that if you want to call yourself big then you have big shoes to fill. Anybody who calls himself big has big shoes to fill. Right now, he’s off pace. He has to get himself on pace if he wants to call himself big.”

“The first thing the great Jerry West did when I signed with the Lakers is he walked me into the Forum and told me to look up. He showed me all the great big men that played before me and how many championships they won. The Lakers have a tradition of having great big men. He has a lot of work ahead of him. If he thinks the Orlando Sentinel was on his case when he didn’t perform, guys like Bill Plaschke, they don’t play…the first year they (the fans) are going to love him, but the second and third year, if they don’t win, he will be back to square one.”

Great quote. In LA you are expected to win multiple titles. With that said, I hate the Lakers and I hope this experiment falls apart.

I don't see that as much of a rip at all. That second paragraph is just the fact of the matter. If he thought he was under the microscope before, then just wait. A lot will be expected of him and he made a spectacle of himself and gotten a lot of negative attention with the "only to the Nets" crap. He shouldn't expect to be welcomed with outstretched arms, he will have to prove his worth.

Doesn't sound like a rip, more like the truth.
The Diesel telling it like it is.

Howard may be the best center in the NBA, but he will never be half as good as Shaq! Shaq was the last of the great centers!
