Shaquille O'Neal Disses Dwight Howard

Always opinionated and outspoken, Shaq blasted Dwight Howard for bolting Los Angeles to play for the Houston Rockets last off season. "It was expected — not everyone can handle being under the bright lights,” O’Neal told reporters while making an appearance at Daytona International in Florida last July. It was a safe move to go to a little town like Houston." He has also mentioned that Howard is “too nice” in the past. We think that Shaq jabs Dwight to reiterate that the Superman ‘S’ they both love is off limits to the younger center. Up, up, and away.
