Yesterday during a quick exchange on Twitter with Kobe Bryant, Shaquille O'Neal brought up Dwight Howard's name in a tweet and had many people say it is taking a shot at the new Lakers center.
Today, Shaq appeared with The Dan Patrick Show on Thursday morning to talk about his exchange with him and Kobe and Dwight Howard.
“Listen, I wish him well. My only advice to him is he needs to dig, dig deep. Really deep. I know he’s a big man, he’s worked hard, he wants to win a championship, and he can get it done.
…. My message to the great Dwight Howard is, I know everybody’s counting you out. I know everybody’s messing with you. But if you dig deep down and play with that anger, and play with that ferocity, and stop kidding around…. Use LeBron and Kyle Kuzma, because you’ve actually got a good team.
In Miami, I was 34, same as Dwight. On my way out. People thought I was washed up when I left LA, but I dug deep down. I said ‘you know what? I can do this.’ If he does everything like he’s supposed to do – focus, no joking, no playing – just dig deep down and really, really want it, they could possibly win.”
