Shaq on Heat: 'Big 2' will keep leading Miami
 
And so the Shaq era begins....I'm sorry but Shaq is just an overall douchebag but he should raise some eyebrows - that and we all know he has never liked RuPaul.

That so-called ''Big 3'' that carried the Miami Heat to the NBA finals? Shaquille O'Neal says that count is one too many. Speaking on NBATV's show to announce the league's 2011-12 schedule, the four-time NBA champion says the Heat have only a ''Big 2'' and referred to Dwyane Wade and LeBron James as ''probably the greatest backcourt ever assembled.'' He made no mention of Chris Bosh, however, and laughed off a notion that he was already looking to create controversy in his television debut by using the ''Big 2'' term. O'Neal retired from the NBA in June and recently completed a deal to work as a Turner Sports analyst.

I can only take Shaq in small doses. His mumbling and overall arogance can be a little grating. That said, him and Charles will be gold imo. As for this comment, not exactly shocking since he's never had much respect for Bosh.

Shaq's schtick will be that of a motor mouth with no filter.
its worked for Chuck, it'll work for him as well. He's always been this way and he will be able to get away with saying things others wouldnt dare say, let alone get away with.
it suits him, and i think he'll bring alot of controversy and laughter along the way.
he's anything buy boring, and he's going to try to follow the same path Chuck paved. everyone loves chuck, even if he is a knucklehead.

its things like this that remind me how immature shaq really is. he takes things way too personally and holds a grudge for wayyyy too long. like honestly, his beef with kobe last way too long and he dealt with in very immaturely. and this is coming from a kobe "hater", and those that are regulars here at RF know i ain't no bosh fan either....

and yes, chuck is awesome

I wish Shaq could say something we don't already know.

Chuck can get away with anything because he is a knucklehead. Shaq is lovable when he's a big teddy bear, but he will come off as a bit of a big bully if he goes the other way. I loved his ass rap about Kobe, but only because I dislike Kobe - deep down I thought it looked bad on Shaq and took some of the lustre off his character. He needs to be really careful with the kind of exposure that TV offers. That said - the big 2 comment is not all that controversial - it's pretty much old hat.

when chuck is focused on providing good basketball commentary and not being a knucklehead, he provides good, valuable analysis. shaq will be good for a laugh here and there, but i don't see him being able to get over himself. i think it's going to blow up.

Plus the guy mumbles like nobody's business. His in Game analysis will be horrawful imo.

I love shaq, no matter what.

Maybe he meant Wade and Bosh since Lebron departed in the finals.

Superjudge 07-20-2011 11:08 AM

thats what I was thinking. Bosh stepped up, and in the last game, he was busting ass harder than any other guy on that Miami team

Windex 07-20-2011 11:20 AM

Bosh was the 2nd best player in the finals for Miami :police:

Someguy again 07-20-2011 11:44 AM

yeah, shaq is taking his personal beef on the air, he keeps this up he wont last long no matter how funny he is

Superjudge 07-20-2011 11:50 AM

Any of you guys see Barkley on the Feherty Show?


Dark Knight 07-20-2011 11:55 AM

Bosh must've effed Shaq's wife or something...













































... Oh wait, that was Gilbert Arenas. :cookie:
