This is annoying.. Something is always started because someone feels the need to comment negatively about someone else life.. Please! Ima Shaq fan.. But really what's the point of "dissing" Lebron.. Shaq! You be you n let Lebron be Lebron! Whatever happen to "If you don't have anything nice to say, Don't say anything at all!"

Lebron tries so hard to be cool. Really pathetic. He absolutely cares about everything said about him. Lebron's thin skin and insecurity is what cripples him in clutch situations.

People were actually able to hear what Lebron said? My volume was pretty loud but i couldnt even really tell.

Anyways, Shaq said that because its his first day on the job and people expect him to say some controversal things and he has to show that he's not going to hold back.

Does what Shaq say really matter? No. Same with Barkley, Kenny, and the rest of them. Lebron has to do what he wants to do because he's never going to make everyone happy. No matter what he does, how he does it, there are still going to be people that don't like him and constantly rip him.

The media hyped up his free agency so much, ESPN used him for ratings and then when they saw the backlash they turned on him and turned him into a villian.

The guy has never gotten in trouble on or off the court unlike other players, he's known to be a great team player and he's trying his best to be the best. Its gotta be hard when everyone tells you how you should walk, talk, think, look, etc. every second. No matter what he does he can't win.

He'll get his ring eventually and that will silence some but there will still be other idiots out there who come up with reasons to diminish the accomplishment.

And as for the Heat being the Big 3, when 3 players on your team scoring over 75% of your points each night, yes its a Big 3.

Eh... don't think it's the Big 3 so much as the bench and that head coach. I don't think he's getting the best out of everyone.

He seems young to be a head coach. LeBron looks older than he does. I don't think Spoelstra commands the respect of the locker room.

I think Riley should get in there and chew people out every once in a while. After his tea, of course.

Shaq's right about one thing, not one person has even mentioned Bosch's name with regard to this story. It just goes to show you what people think about Bosch, and that's NOTHING!

Chris Bosch is a little fish in a big bowl!

Funny how TMZ "censor nazi's" block clean relevant words like Pari******on and Don'*****ch but can't figure out how to block all these stupid XBOX penny auction scam spam ads.

But then again, maybe TMZ is getting a kickback off all the penny auction spam ads in the comments.

Shaq has been just a role player for years now. The same role playing centers that he dissed back in his prime for hanging around and not retiring.

Just like the Fiest song 1,2,3,4.

One, two, three, four
I got a ring and then 3 more
You got Dwayne Wade
Don't you wish you had one more

Stupid Miami Fans are knocking on your door
Gave them nothing but they want some more

Oh, You're failing as a star
Oh, you know who you are.

Shaq is trying so hard to stay relevent it is hard to watch. This is a guy when he was in his prime had to come out of close games at the end because he couldn't shoot free throws. Hardly the stuff of an "all time great"

How many championship rings does Shaq have?

How many championship rings does Lebron have?

Lebron needs to STFU and go back to being over-paid and over-rated.

TMZ that man did not diss Shaq, if you listen carefully as obviously some of you did not, he said that Shaq had and unbelievable career and he is happy for him. Haters need to stop the madness!
