You spoiled brat, you got a big house, you got cars, you fly private’” - Shaquille O'Neal

Shaquille O'Neal says his father gave him a dressing down after hearing him complain about too much pressure

Kind of long to cut and paste but it’s worth the click and the time.

Great read.

"He was upset, takes me in the car early next morning and we watch a homeless family. Pressure is when you don't know where your next meal is coming from. Family that he used to take care of, he said 'I don't ever want to hear you say you can't handle the pressure again.'"

Amazing how important having a good father in your life is as a young man. So many athletes these days only have grandma or mom

Dale Brown paid Shaw just like that idiot Will Wade paid his players.

Of course that would be your take on a great story.

Im pretty sure elite football and basketball players have been paid long before Shaq. I just wish he’d played at Alabama but he did play for my favorite nba team , the Lakers

Shaq's dad was a great man and father that never let his son make excuses to skirt accountability.

I once saw a segment on ESPN about Shaq, traveling to Mobile to spend the whole day with a young boy who was a huge fan, but was a terminally ill cancer patient. Talk about a lump in the throat, been a huge fan ever since.

Only a handful of athletes have done as good a job of marketing their personality as Shaq. Of course...most athletes don't have anywhere close to as much personality to try to market in the first place.

Gotta love Shaq.

Doesn't make excuses, doesn't play the victim game, etc.

And even though he's a Trump fan, people don't seem to want to cancel him over it.

I heard his son was talking to him one day about how they're rich and Shaq stopped him.

"Look here. You're not rich. *I'm* rich. You're not."

If there has ever been 1 athlete in my life time I'd like to hang out with, it's Shaq. The man is truly a legend and a good man.

WHen you are sitting in a baby pool playing with your own feces in your diaper do you realize how idiotic you sound.
