Default Shaq on Pat Riley and the Miami Heat

Tell us what you really think Shaq.

While the Big Cactus said he enjoys being with Steve Nash, coach Mark D’Antoni and the rest of his Phoenix pals, his reaction to his former Miami Heat teammates was a little more cold:

“I love playing for this coach and I love playing with these guys,” said O’Neal yesterday. “We have professionals who know what to do. No one is asking me to play with Chris Quinn or Ricky Davis. I’m actually on a team again.”

The same Chris Quinn who scored a career-high 24 points in Miami’s Monday win over the Bucks?

Shaq also had something to say about Pat Riley and the way he’s been running the Heat:

“I guess when you have a lot of power, you can do what you want. Me? If I ever came into that kind of power, I think I’d be willing to admit it if I messed up.”

But it wasn’t just Heat players Shaq had a go at. He also had some backhanded comments for some former Celtics when talking about this evening’s matchup:

“I’m looking forward to [tonight]. I’ve never played them when they were Boston Boston. Back when they had those teams with Rick Fox and ‘Nique [Dominique Wilkins], they were only Sort Of Boston. Now it’s Boston Boston.”
