On Inside the NBA, O’Neal initially claimed that he was the vocal leader for the Lakers who made sure guys were involved. Co-host Kenny Smith, however, continually argued that was false, and after enough prodding, Shaq finally relented:
Kenny: “You weren’t that guy, Shaq.”
Shaq: “I did everything. What are you talking about?”
Kenny: “You weren’t the guy who would get everybody vocally involved. I watched you play your whole career, man. I was on the floor with you.”
Shaq: “Say it again. I wasn’t the guy that did what?”
Kenny: “You weren’t the vocal guy telling guys to get on the floor the way KG was just doing.”
Shaq: “Stop it. Yes I was. … You know what, probably Rick Fox. When I was in Orlando, it was Horace.” Via LN - Corey H.
