Discuss.

If Howard wants to play in a bigger market or for a certain team, thats his business, and he has every right to.

Shaq is the ultimate chief media marketer. Stirring up **** for all star weekend 2012 in Orlando. I wonder how the city welcomes both Shaq and Howard during that whole weekend.

In Shaq's defense he would know from experience and you fail to see what the real issue Shaq has is.

Shaq is afraid Dwight goes to the Lakers and stars in Kazaam 2.

Pot meet kettle.

It's one thing to run your mouth and cause a little drama (go against the grain per say) ala Skip Bayless but Shaq is just flat out annoying.

Dwight + Ryan Anderson and that should be an adequate offer ;)

Hate to praise a guy for chasing money but the Magic deserved to lose Shaq.

You could argue they deserve to lose Dwight for the team they put around him but thats a different animal.

For as much trash as he talks, Shaq still lives in that "dried up little pond."

Anything for attention.

Shaq's last 3 and half seasons in the NBA were a joke and now that he's not on the court, he has to be Shaq and try to get attention.

This is just another way of Shaq trying to keep his name in peoples mouth.

For some weird reason, every time Shaq talks, it makes me want to take a dump.

Strangest thing.

shaq doesnt want howard to follow in his steps. they are already too similar. imagine if howard went to la and played with kobe. he would be like a shaq clone.

shaq is one of my favorite players of all time, and IMO the best center to ever play the game.

I used to love his personality too. not taking himself too seriously, yet being respectful/concious of the NBA's history and alltime great players.

But now that he is retired, i think he just needs to stfu. He isn't good on TNT, has some weird fued with howard, and often makes ridiculous comments. His analysis of the game and players has been terrible. Where does this guy have room to talk about howard?? Shaq make some very questionable career moves and shouldn't be lecturing. Sure he got his rings, but he should have gotten a lot more. please be quiet and let sir charles do his thang.

Shaq is just trying to protect his legacy, he knows that IF*** Dwight gets traded to the Lakers, it is very possible that the Kobe and Dwight Lakers could win a title or two, and if he does, Kobe's career becomes "the big man maker" winning a title with Shaq, Bynum and Gasol, and Dwight, he automatically becomes the player where if you stick him with a good big man he will win a title..

If that happens Shaq's career wont seem as promising anymore, his legacy becomes threatened because he wasn't unique when it came to winning with Kobe, because Kobe won titles with Shaq, Pau and Bynum and (in my hypothetical scenario) Dwight Howard..So he's scared about Dwight possibly being moved, and he is even more scared about Dwight playing with Kobe and possibly winning a title..

That's why Shaq is saying a lot of crap about Howard and that's why he thinks Bynum is a better center, because according to Shaq he completely stole his thunder, drafted by the Magic, went to the Finals and lost, nickname is Superman, goofball 7 foot dominant center, and has a chance to go to the Lakers just like he did and win titles with Kobe just like he did..

Anyway, that's just my opinion, and in no way am I saying Dwight is going to be a Laker

Shaq was in the same situation 16 years ago. As much as I love the big fella, he has no place in calling the possibility a "Travesty" considering he left Orlando for LA and won 3 straight championships.

The big difference between Shaq and Dwight is that fans were polled whether they'd choose Shaq and coach Brian Hill, and ignorant Magic fans chose the coach over Shaq. :laugh:.Also the FO refused to give Shaq the max dollars. Dwight is leaving despite being wanted and being offered the max.

Shaq 'Do as I say, not as I do" O'neal.

Howard doesn't need career advice from Shaq. Shaq burnt every bridge he built, and ended his career as a journey man. Howard should do what he wants.
