Shaquille O’Neal has been in the headlines lately for his feud with the Warriors’ back-up big man JaVale McGee.
McGee didn’t take kindly to Shaq constantly calling him out on his TNT segment ‘Shaqting a Fool’ and decided that he’d let his feeling be known. The Warriors front office stood with McGee and reportedly contacted the big wigs at TNT, but Shaq remained unworried. That is until the real “boss” said enough is enough.
O’neal spoke with The Undefeated and detail how his mother is the reason for him ending the feud with McGee.
“Just say Shaq’s mom called him, told him, ‘Stop this silliness. Leave him alone.’ So that’s the end of the beef,” said O’Neal. “You won’t be hearing about it from my side anymore. Mama has spoken.”
Here’s what Shaq’s mom, Lucille, had to say about the situation.
“It’s not funny anymore, seeing the things they’re saying to each other,” Lucille said. “They need to squash this and move on.”
It goes to show, no matter how old or big you are, there’s no going against what your mom wants.
