It seems that Shaquille O’Neal picked the wrong fight by calling out the city of Houston.
O’Neal criticized Dwight Howard earlier this month when the highly coveted All-Star center decided to leave Los Angeles and take his talents to Houston. O’Neal called Howard’s decision “expected,” and said “not a whole lot of people can handle being under the bright lights” of L.A. The retired NBA star even went a step further, saying, “I think it was a safe move for him to go to a little town like Houston.”
And none of those comments, apparently, pleased one young Rockets fan.
Cameras from Houston’s local ABC affiliate recently found the youngster, who wasn’t shy one bit about expressing his thoughts about O’Neal.
“Dwight Howard is the best center in the league,” the young boy said. “Shaq, I wanna say one thing to you, don’t ever disrespect Houston like that again! Don’t ever disrespect Houston. H-town, baby!”
