Shaquille O’Neal said this about Dwight Howard; Dwight Howard said that about Shaquille O’Neal. Can’t these guys just get along? Well, in the case of former and current Lakers big men vying for position on an already crowded totem pole of legacies, it seems unlikely.

The current feud between Lakers’ center Dwight Howard and ex-Lakers’ center and NBA commentator Shaquille O’Neal has been brewing for a minute now. And you can plan on it continuing so long as Shaq’s being paid to voice his opinion and Dwight’s waiting with Tony Stark-styled rebuttals.
