Shaquille O’Neal doesn’t want to hear any complaining from LeBron James about
the NBA’s schedule.

Following multiple injuries to players in the playoffs, the Los Angeles
Lakers star ripped the league for games starting so soon after last season
ended. LeBron pretty much accused the league’s scheduling of causing

However, Shaq wasn’t impressed and he thinks there’s no room for complaining
when you make the kind of money NBA players do.

They all didn’t wanna listen to me about the start of the season. I
knew exactly what would happen. 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. 8, possibly 9 ALL-STARS has
missed Playoff games(most in league history). 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

The legendary center said the following during a Tuesday appearance on CNBC,
according to BroBible:

When you’re living in a world where 40 million people have been laid
off and I’m making $200 million, you won’t get no complaining from me.
I’d play back to back to back to back to back. I’m not knocking what
anybody said, but me personally, I don’t complain and make excuses
because real people are working their tail off and all we gotta do is
train two hours a day, and then play a game for two hours at night and
make a lot of money…So my thought process is a little different.

Leave it to Shaq to always be the voice of reason, and he’s 100% correct.
There’s literally no reason at all to be complaining if you’re an NBA star.

Athletes in the NBA get paid ridiculous amounts of money to win basketball
games. That’s what they do. If LeBron James has a problem with the schedule,
then he’s in the wrong business.

And I know all about the business side too/factors so don’t even try me!
I get it.

You can also really tell that more and more people have had enough of LeBron
James’ antics and attention-seeking stunts.

A few years ago, I’m not sure you’d see anyone involved with the league
criticize him. Now, it happens without hesitation.

Maybe LeBron should do a little less complaining and a little more winning
seeing as how the Lakers were bounced in the first round of the playoffs.
Just a thought for the four-time NBA champion!


Trump won.
