  • Shaquille O'Neal says LeBron James potentially winning one championship in Los Angeles wouldn't be enough to carve himself into the Lakers Mt. Rushmore. Shaq ups the ante by saying LeBron would need to three-peat with Anthony Davis to eclipse some of the greatest Lakers of all-time.

    Shaq is as real as they come proud to say he is a jersey native cuz he tell it as it is but if you ask me he most definitely deserving of being on the Mount Rushmore for Lakers all biased aside growing up I live in 3 different state even when he in Miami ppl still talk bout his years as a lakers if he was still on the lakers has Kobe mentality shaq would of had 6 rings and Kobe would of had 7

    Ryan Hollins lack of critical thinking skills is trash. ESPN needs to raise the bar and not hire just anybody. He clearly has no BBALL IQ.

    I'm sorry, the ONLY WAY you get on the Lakers Mt Rushmore is if you BEAT THE CELTICS. If LBJ does that, then he's earned his spot.

    Lebron is the goat to me but I dont think any player should be on the teams mt rushmore if they didnt play more then 6 or 10 years there. Lebron can only be on the cavs mt rushmore. Maybe maybe maybe on Miami's. But I dont really feel like he should.

  • Aaron Robles
    Aaron Robles 7 days ago

    Shaq and hakeem are the best centers. And idc how much shaq tries to show respect. Shaq was way way way more skilled then kareem. My laker mt rushmore is
    #1-magic cause how long he played for lakers.
    #2-Kobe for how long he played for lakers and putting up the most craziest stats.
    #3-shaq
    #4-jerry west/kareem
    #5-jerry west/kareem.
    If Kareem played vs shaq shaq a treat him like a rag doll. Strength wise and skill wise. Shaqs too fast for kareem. Sorry. I show respect but cant go over board just cause their old school players. Na. Sorry.

    Michael Jordan didn't play against GS Warrior, Michael Jordan had D rodman, S peppin and some more good players around him.

    Couldn’t agree more with Shaq talking about eras. Other than MJ who we can all say is the greatest, I really don’t think we should define players besides in their own era. Otherwise I think it’s stupid to be arguing about it.
    (Also even though I say MJ is hands down THE goat, I’m a massive Lebron fan, love what he’s done for the game of basketball. He’s easily in my top 5 best players of all time. Best physical specimen to play the game next to people like wilt, shaq, Gianna’s, and few other people I think are superhuman)

    Jerry west isn’t on it. He’ll tell you that himself. Shaq goes above West.
    It’s Kobe, Magic, Kareem, Shaq.

  • WATASHIWA SMARTPHONE GA!

    Why? Why does he even deserves to be on Mt.Rushmore he hasnt even played for a long time for the Lakers....by end of 2020 he would have played 2 seasons only....why is this even a discussion? Not even guaranteed WCF with the competition on the west.

    Nice that he recognized that Kareem was “the man” at the end but to anyone out there... that is a GIVEN.
    Shaq is in the top 10 but Kareem is the GREATEST basketball player of All-Time... All Players..., Any Era!

    Ryan Hollins is an absolute idiot nobody. Check this out...Lebron James right now has the exact same career averages and championships as Larry Bird. The differences between Larry Bird and Lebron is that one is a killer and the other has been on steroids off and on his entire career. Lebron's 3 rings...one came with a betting/gambling scandal...all of them came on super teams where he need two other all stars with him...count them...2 other all stars plus himself to win those championships. He's been swept out of the finals twice. Count them...two times! That's being dominated at the highest level...twice. Lebron lost Olympic Gold until Kobe Bryant came and lead them to a Gold. Lebron promised to compete in the dunk contest and never did. Didn't even compete. The NBA is not just basketball it's entertainment. Lebron bounced on his hometown team and fans TWICE. I don't think LeBron surpasses Larry Legend...let alone an all time Lakers starting five. Lebron is not a true Laker...his jersey is going up in Cleveland with 1 ring to it. To think that anyone would say he's the best ever...or dream of comparing him to The Goat Michael Jordan...or the best to ever do it Kobe Bryant...that's how you know the NBA advertising and media machine is working on the ignorant ones. The NBA tried so hard to make Lebron a King...the new poster boy and it only fooled the ignorant. If the hype on LeBron was real...he'd be doing things we never thought of...never seen... Westbrook averaged a triple double...Lebron has been juiced and on super teams and barely managed 3 rings. Padding his stats...what a joke.
