We’ve never known Shaq to hold his tongue. That’s why TNT hired him. During a recent radio interview, he somehow managed to compare CP3 to Rondo. Interesting that he says Paul “scores alot” and questions when was the last time the Hornets made the playoffs. Uh, that would be last year, Shaq.
“Shaq: I said to myself a long time ago from sitting here watching…I saw Patrick Ewing get traded. I saw Dominique Wilkins get traded. Everyone is tradeable, you could probably get a lot for Rajon Rondo but he is the heart and soul of the team. I don’t think that would be a good idea. If I was the general manager, I wouldn’t do it.
[Hosts: You would not do it?]
[Hosts: Even if it was for Chris Paul?]
Shaq: Chris Paul is not better than Rajon Rondo… Rajon Rondo is the true definition of a point guard, period. He gets everybody involved and he scores when he has to. Chris Paul scores a lot of points, but when was the last time they made it to the playoffs? Thank you very much.”
