Twitter recently released a new commercial that features Los Angeles Lakers great Shaquille O’Neal, in addition to other athletes and sports fans.
In the commercial they discuss who the “G.O.A.T.” is in the sports world, with many other different athletes like Muhammad Ali, Abby Wambach, Simone Biles, Stephen Curry, Julius Erving and even people outside of the sports world like Albert Einstein and Lady Gaga.
Additionally, one fan believes that Lakers No. 2 overall pick Lonzo Ball will be the G.O.A.T., which stands for greatest of all-time.
The Lakers drafted the point guard out of UCLA last week, and the expectations surrounding him are already sky high. Lakers president of basketball operations, and perhaps the best point guard to ever play, Magic Johnson, has already called Ball the new face of the Lakers franchise, and has said that he expects to see Ball’s No. 2 jersey retired in the Staples Center amongst all the other Laker greats.
One of the stars in the commercial, O’Neal, won three straight NBA championships with the Lakers from 2000-02. O’Neal has to be in the G.O.A.T. conversation, as the 15-time All-Star and 2016 Hall of Fame inductee was one of the most dominant forces to ever pick up a basketball.
Since retiring O’Neal has transitioned nicely into the entertainment world, as he has been in movies, TV shows and commercials in addition to serving as an on-air analyst on TNT’s “Inside the NBA”.
