Shaquille O’Neal throws major shade at Tim Duncan when he explains why Duncan is not one of the best big men of all-time. Duncan, who recently retired, has been called one of the best players to ever play the game and it seems like Shaq may be a little critical of the 20-year veteran.
According to The Big Podcast with Shaq, Shaq discussed Tim Duncan’s legacy and where he fits amongst other “big men”:
I only have one beef with how they’re throwing this around. They’re saying he’s one of the greatest big men. Do you count power forwards as big men? Because I don’t. I was always taught that the big man was a center. I know we got new rules and they don’t have the center spot no more, but no.
Do you agree with Shaq? Tim Duncan is over seven feet and has played center a lot of his career, so how could he not be considered a big man? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
