Shaquille O’Neal takes another dig at the Balls, says he’s the “Original Baller’
Big human being and NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal has been away from the game since 2011, but that’s not hampering him from grabbing headlines. Always with a gregarious personality, O’Neal never fails to entertain his fans with his antics and jokes — sometimes at the expense of other people.
This time, it’s LaVar Ball and his family that was made a target by O’Neal, who put up a jeering post on Instagram, which shows him wearing his old Los Angeles Lakers uniform with an accompanying group of hashtags that includes “#originalbigballer”.
It’s easily a dig at the Balls, whose head, LaVar, recently said that he and his son, LaMelo, “would kill Shaq and Shareef” in a 2-on-2 game. Shareef, of course, is Shaq’s son, who is expected to play college basketball with the Arizona Wildcats next year.
This wasn’t the first shots fired by O’Neal towards the Ball family, as he lately had an Instagram video post where he’s seen dancing and sporting a seizure-inducing glowing pair of shoes that he described in a hashtag as “#shaqshoestherealbigballerbrand”.
By now, LaVar must have gotten the message loud and clear: you come at the Big Diesel, you best not miss.
