Shaquille O'Neal always raises the bar when he makes predictions. The four-time NBA champion is very confident in his picks and doesn't hesitate to bet anything when defending his point.
This NBA season doesn't have a clear favorite to the championship, but Shaq has his candidate. The Golden State Warriors snapped a two-game losing streak against the Chicago Bulls on Friday night, demolishing DeMar DeRozan and co. at United Center.
They looked like the dangerous team they were at the start of the season, reminding people that they are ready to return to the top of the league. Plenty of people around the league believe they have a solid case to win the title, and Shaquille O'Neal is one of those.
In a recent edition of his podcast The Big Shaqstradmus, the Los Angeles Lakers legend explained how confident he is in the Warriors winning it all in the next couple of months. Shaq went further to say he'll go out naked, showing the Suns name on his butt.
“If the Suns beat Golden State I am going to walk two blocks with Suns written on my ass, I’ll post it live on Instagram with it," he said, as transcribed by Sportskeeda.
This is maybe too much, but it shows how well the Big Diesel sees the Warriors right now. They are a dangerous team and now that Klay Thompson is back, the expectations are even higher for the Dubs.
The Suns want to surpass what they did last season, where they lost in the Finals against the Milwaukee Bucks. The only improvement to that would be the championship. Other than that, it would be a failure for the Arizonans.
We've seen three good duels between these two squads and the fourth one will take place in March. Perhaps, when that game arrives, we'll have a clear picture on what team will have the biggest chance to win the Larry O'Brien trophy. When that moment arrives, Shaq will be ready, hoping the Warriors do the job.
