Shaquille O'Neal is not strange to controversy. The 4x NBA champion is constantly engaging in debates with fans, asking their opinion on specific topics. Either it is current matters or hypothetical scenarios, Shaq is always stirring the pot on social media.
In recent hours, The Big Diesel shared a pic of the NBA Mount Rushmore, which featured three Los Angeles Lakers legend and Michael Jordan, who's widely considered the greatest player of all time.
The rest of the pic has Magic Johnson, Kobe Bryant and O'Neal himself. He shared the MyMixtapez edit on his Instagram stories, seemingly agreeing with the fact that he's one of the four best players in NBA history, even though that means leaving LeBron James out of this exclusive list.
NBA fans reacted to the original pic, going with this idea, wondering why LeBron isn't there. Others said that Kobe belongs to the top regardless of who else makes it.
Whenever people try to make a top 5 list or a "Mount Rushmore" or whatever, others voice their opinions on why they're wrong. This obviously will never change since NBA fans are very passionate. They always try to change other people's minds instead of learning why they think a certain way.
This time, though, it's curious to see a list that doesn't have LeBron James on it. The King is one of the two best players in league history, so it's crazy to not see him there.
Shaq, on the other end, is always confident in himself. He had a terrific NBA career, becoming a top 10 player of all time in the eyes of many. However, not a lot of folks think he's actually one of the four greatest players to ever live.
