Kobe Bryant Can’t Make Shaq ‘Shut Up’ About Dwight Howard


The media (naturally) tried to pull Kobe Bryant into the never-ending Dwight Howard/Shaquille O’Neal beef, but Bryant wouldn’t bite. Kobe gave a diplomatic response when asked about the big fella drama. Per the LA Daily News: “A smiling Bryant said simply: ‘My primary concern is the big fella here (Howard). I think he’s going to do just fine for his legacy with the Lakers.’ Of O’Neal, his former teammate and occasional nemesis, Bryant added, ‘He gets paid to make opinions. I can’t tell him to shut up. That’s his job. That’s what he does.’”

    If Shaq keeps on with his “criticism” of Dwight, which we all know is coming from some kind of personal problem with him, it’s going to turn into a Skip Bayless-LeBron James type of situation. He’s turning into a talking head.

    A good sports analyzer should not allow personal feelings or opinions mix into what he is saying when he is analyzing players. How can you take what he saying serious if he goes around saying brook lopez is better than dwight.

    Actually, Jerry Buss Can’t Make Jeanie Buss Make Phil Jackson Make Kobe Bryant Make Shaq ‘Shut Up’ About Dwight Howard

  • shockexchange

    Dwight Howard can’t make Horry Jr pass the ball either.

  • Atlanta Zone 6

    I get where your coming from but difference between Bayless-Lebron and Shaq-Dwight is Shaq actually played in the NBA, and Shaq, in my opinion, would own Dwight if they competed prime vs. prime or at any age etc. The fact that somebody is swagger jacking you and is following in your footsteps, that would bug you too. Ask MJ how he feels about people labeling Kobe being as good as him. lol

  • ByAnyMeansNecessary

    Shaq swagger jacked Superman. A grown man nicknamed himself after a comic book character. He tattooed him on his arm and put his symbol in his cars. Dwight didn’t choose to be drafted by Orlando and he didn’t force a trade to the Lakers. No one else is allowed to like Superman? No other player is allowed to be jovial and playful? Dwight probably looked up to Shaq and for Shaq to act this way towards him really lets people know how foolish he can be. Jordan has never said anything like this about Kobe and Kobe actually did copy him from how he talks to how he walks and plays.

    I’m hoping for a Dwight, shaq fistfight

  • Andrew Bogut

    Shaq secretly watches homosexual rabbit porn. True story

  • shockexchange

    After being personally attacked, the Shock Exchange now stands corrected. D12 can make Horry Jr pass the ball.

  • justin05

    you are unintelligent pal..

  • Robert C, Griggs

    Shaq is an educated,wealthy,successful man. He can do much better than this silly attack on Dwight Howard.

    You have no sense of humor pal…

  • miker

  • chris

    I would leave a message but Time Warner will not set up a plan so my cable provider can televise Laker Games. Is this what you wanted Jerry Buss for most of So.Cal not watching the Lakers in Orange County TV? I AM ONE PISSED OFF LAKER FAN TO PAGE AT THE EL SEGUNDO OFFICE.

    Shaq isn’t, nor will ever be, a good analyzer. He literally says the most basic possible thing one could say given the situation, and resorts to talking about his own degree more than he does about the game.

    To add, Dwight didn’t call himself Superman. He did a “Superman” dunk, and the nickname caught on due to Kenny’s commentary.

  • danpowers

    get a league pass

  • danpowers

    lol

  • danpowers

    bitch please

  • danpowers

    he is a media guy now so talking stupid bullshit is what he does now to earn money and stay successful. as bryant said, thats shaq’s job now

  • gz

    Shiet this title, trying to make Kobe look bad

  • SpaceGhostJesus

    Slamonline. Where sensationalist writing happens.

  • ByAnyMeansNecessary

    I think he played around with it before, but it definitely went up another notch after that All-Star Weekend thanks to his performance and Kenny’s commentary.

    since when did the mamba become derek jeter..like the response thou..no drama!!

  • shutup

    They were calling Dwight Superman before that dunk, thats why he put on the cape dumbass. As for people saying Shaq gave himself the nickname, prove it or let it go……also people do realize that Shaq played a Superman persona in a movie so he was recognized by the powers that be to use the logo.

  • http://twitter.com/MaluNewYorker Jerry Alex

    He was saying Brook is a more classic center than Dwight. Which is true. The guys post game is better than Dwights. Brook is not better though as a player.

  • ByAnyMeansNecessary

    Name the person who called Shaq Superman first. Since you sound like you can prove that Shaq didn’t give himself the nickname. Who called him Superman? He took the name like anyone else who just decides to nickname themselves after a superhero. Period. It’s a fact. Deal with it.

  • KDfish13

    y cant shaq just chill out? he’s only making himself look bad ny dissing on dwight.

  • shutup

    lol your asking me to do what you can’t; you accused him of giving himself the nickname first, back up what you said with some facts. instead of deferring your shortcomings onto me. I don’t know who called Shaq superman first but there is no evidence he called himself superman first either. Oh btw not everyone with a superhero nickname, or basketball nickname gives it to themselves, ie Dwayne Wade and Flash.

  • justin05

    Nah you’re just dumb bro. I see some of what you have been posting on here. Dumbazz shiiiit. Use a brain cell or two next time you post on this website.

    LOL

  • gogadantes

    This isn’t about being ‘as good’ as anyone. Shaq got mad because Dwight’s nickname is apparently Superman, (who is not Shaq’s exclusive domain, but actually a fictional comic character that has existed since 1930s, btw) like his was when he used to play.
    A lot of people label Kobe as playing like MJ, and about that, MJ actually said it himself that Kobe’s the only other player he considered to deserve comparisons with him.

  • joy

    Doesn’t make him a good analyst. Magic Johnson has said many retarded things, like saying Westbrook’s 27-point 8-assist effort was the “worst game of any point guard in NBA finals history” because of his poor shooting – despite the fact that it wasn’t even the worst game that any point guard had on that day itself, since Mario Chalmers was 1-for-9 with fewer assists.

  • mjhsh3

    Howard is sorry!
