LeBron James was moaning about the past season and Shaquille O’Neal tore into him for his whining, according to The Western Journal.
“They all didn’t wanna listen to me about the start of the season.
“I knew exactly what would happen,” LeBron stated on Twitter.
“I only wanted to protect the well being of the players which ultimately is the PRODUCT & BENEFIT of OUR GAME! These injuries isn’t just ‘PART OF THE GAME.”
“It’s the lack of PURE RIM REST rest before starting back up.”
“This is the best time of the year for our league and fans but missing a ton of our fav players.”
“It’s insane. If there’s one person that know about the body and how it works all year round it’s ME!”.”
“I speak for the health of all our players and I hate to see this many injuries this time of the year.”
“Sorry fans wish you guys were seeing all your fav guys right now.”

Shaw said, “When you’re living in a world where people, 40 million people have been laid off and I’m making $200 million, you won’t get no complaining from me.”
“If I gotta play back to back to back to back to back to back to back to back to back, and I’m making all that money, I just gotta do what the job entitles me to do.”
“I’m not knocking what anybody said, but me personally, I don’t complain or make excuses, because real people like you who really work your tail off, you don’t make as much as we do, and all we gotta do is train two hours a day and then play a game two hours at night and we make a lot of money.”
“So my thought process is a little different.”
“This is the first time in a while that juggernauts have been gone.”
From The Western Journal:
The Hall of Famer noted that while high-paid athletes such as James complain, millions of Americans would love to have their sense of financial and job security. O’Neal, of course, played in a different era — even if that era wasn’t so long ago.
O’Neal — who is a friend of law enforcement officers nationwide, in contrast with James — also pointed out the bright side of the recent injuries in the NBA.
In fact, as of Wednesday, only the Los Angeles Clippers, the Phoenix Suns, the Milwaukee Bucks and the Atlanta Hawks remain in contention for the title. Maybe that’s not such a bad thing for a game controlled by only a few large-market teams for many years.
