Shaquille O’Neil has never been one to hide his feelings. But this time, it could come back to haunt him.
During his time on the Lakers in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s, Shaq was convinced at the time that no other coach could duplicate what Phil Jackson did in Los Angeles — taking a team to the NBA Finals four times in five years. In an interview with ESPN during his Lakers days, Shaq made a disgusting promise should another coach accomplish the feat, something Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr recently achieved.
So what’s the favor? O’Neil must kiss Kerr’s feet — with cheese on them.
Check out the original clip:
Don’t worry. Kerr found it pretty disturbing, too.
“I’m going to pretend (David West) didn’t send this to me this morning,” Kerr tweeted at Shaq on Monday evening.
Doesn’t sound like he’ll be taking the big man up on that offer anytime soon, if ever.
