Shaquille O'Neal once again has attacked Rudy Gobert. The legendary center has been on Gobert's back for a couple of days now and he doesn't seem to be stopping anytime soon. Despite clarifying he wasn't beefing with anybody and was joking, O'Neal is putting a lot of time into taking jabs at Gobert.
It all started when he clowned the Frenchman after he signed a 5-year, $200 million extension with the Utah Jazz. That contract raised a lot of eyebrows around the league and Shaq didn't miss his chance to participate. During a recent interview, he said that Gobert's extension could inspire kids around the world. If they average 11 points per game, they could get $200 million.
He then continued attacking Gobert, even guessing what would have happened if they clashed on the court, both in their primes. Shaq has been very active with his messages and even though Gobert made it clear he wasn't entertaining any beef with anybody, O'Neal has attacked the Defensive Player of the Year award winner again.
While Charles Barkley was talking about the players that haven't been good this season, like Jamal Murray of the Denver Nuggets, Shaq used that opportunity to mess with Gobert again. He compared the Frenchman to Nikola Jokic, who had a terrific game against the Dallas Mavericks last night, scoring 38 points.
Charles Barkley: “You need more than the bubble...You need to do it for a few years before I call you a superstar.”
Shaq: “That’s like saying you need to have more than 11 points to get $200 Million.”
Shaq is on a mission now and that's making fun of Gobert as much as he can. This already happened in the past, when he attacked Dwight Howard, JaVale McGee, DeAndre Jordan and more. Now his new victim is Gobert but the French player isn't interested in playing Shaq's game.
