08:07 AM ET 09.10 | Shaquille O'Neal, who has managed to remain in the basketball spotlight as a television analyst, also tends to make headlines with his opinions, some of which he expressed in a recent interview. Q: What was your reaction to Dwight Howard being traded to the Lakers? "I don't have a reaction. You have to care to have a reaction. I've got businesses to run. I always tell people that in order to step in my shoes you have big shoes to fill. For him, he's going to have to at least win three to get people's respect." ... Q: Is there any truth to the reports that you'll be playing games in the Mexican League next month? "No truth to that. It's kind of unfortunate that so-called experts have to get their sources from the Internet."

Damn, why was Chris Bosh guarding Shaq on the picture? 230lbs vs 350lbs?

The truth is he has always been like that and the big flap between him and Kobe was more about his sensitivity. Kobe wanted him to come into camp in shape so they could keep winning. Instead, Shaq waits until September to have a surgery that he needed all off season. That is the kind of thing that drove Kobe crazy.

Thats what he has had defending him his whole career. Thats why his name should be the "big overrated"

I really don't have a problem with his response. Why should he care where Dwight lands? Dwight hasn't done anything for Shaq to be jealous about....yet.
