Shaq's 10-year beef with David Robinson included the pettiest 71-point game and one huge lie

  • Published on Feb 3, 2018
  • Shaq and David Robinson were presented as two totally different people, one flashy and interested in being a star on and off the court, the other humble and service-oriented. But when the beef between these two legends started, it sometimes brought out the worst in both.

    true story: I met david robinson 6 years ago in a hotel in manhattan, asked him for a picture, he said sure, i had a iphone 5 and the camera was taking long to load, he said your camera is talking long... but he still took the picture.

    So The Admiral was too nice and Shaq had to talk himself into being angry at him? 😂 That's awesome.

    Some of you should stop watching basketball. You can’t compare the shooting percentages of Shaq and Hakeem. Hakeem actually had a jumper and every post move in the book. Shaq could hit you with a drop step and a hook, that’s it. Not to mention Shaq went against an old Hakeem

      i don't think keane and vieira had any real serious beef off the pitch but when they were playing they epitomised the culture of their respective teams and their rivalry against each other during that era. which meant they absolutely hated each other on the field and made sure everyone knew about. but keane seems to have beef with pretty much everyone he's worked with anyway!

    Hahah... i remember reading about that in the book i got from the Library. Shaq probably also made up the story that kobe went to Penny for an autograph and Penny signed it and just gave it to the kid Kobe without talking much to Kobe... and that Shaq was going to train Kobe to destroy Penny. LMAO. Than he said he was going to train Wade to beat Kobe when he left the lakers for the Heat. Ah hahah...

    Robinson was a better all around player and better scorer , baring those injuries and his 2 year commitment to the Navy he would be really really better than Shaq and his only dunk game !
