Shaq Rips Dwight Howard For Leaving Lakers For Houston Rockets

The feud between Shaquille O’Neal and Dwight Howard has taken another twist. After Howard announced his decision to head to Houston and join the Rockets, spurning an extra $30 million from the Lakers, Shaq, predictably, had some things to say about Howard’s departure.

While speaking to reporters, including USA Today’s Nate Ryan, Shaq lambasted Howard, basically stating that he can’t hack it in the City of Angels.

Oh, and takes a subtle shot at Houston, too. Remember, the Rockets beat Shaq in his first NBA Finals appearance when he was still a member of the Magic.

 

Knowing the history between the two, I’m sure we’ll get a response from Howard the next time reporters get a few words with him.

If you’ll remember, when asked about Shaq early last season, Howard stated that his time was over, and he needed to move on.

Regardless, the spat between the two former Lakers is endlessly amusing, and I’m sure is far from over.
