NBA Hall of Famer, Shaquille O’Neal has come out to blast the new generation of basketball players. He recently had his say in a recent radio interview, and fans of the sport have been reacting.
According to him, it is a shame that these new generation basketballers do not like to be criticized, unlike players back in his time.
He added that the professionals should just know that when the criticism come from him, he is only doing what was done to him.
His words, “I’m just doing what was done to me,”
“I can remember when I was averaging 30, 35 in L.A., but we were always getting swept. And the great Kareem Abdul-Jabbar said, ‘Hey, you guys haven’t won a championship yet.”
“Did I whine? Did I cry? Did I complain on social media? Nope. I didn’t say anything, because Kareem Abdul-Jabbar had a chief-14 classification to say that,”
“What am I gonna do? Have a dispute with the greatest NBA player ever? So, when he said that, when he gave me constructive criticism, I took it, and I listened, and I brought my game to another level. So these guys now, they’re pudding pops.”
