After the Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Miami Heat in a six game series, Dwight Howard went viral after he gave an emotional speech on Instagram Live.
"Everybody out there, don't ever give up on your dreams," he said. "You can f****' do it, I swear! Just keep fighting."
On a new episode of his podcast, Shaquille O'Neal has suggested that Howard, who has stuck with teams for just one season at least four times, is a "bandwagon jumper" who shouldn't be celebrating his team's win like this.
"You know what I don’t like as a player? It's a lot of players on their little instagram bragging like they were the reasons they got the championship." I ain't gonna say no names," he continued, "Sit your ass down you ain't do nothing." He proceeded to call anyone doing this a "bandwagon jumper," and concluded, "Post one pic and sit your ass down."
"I don't know who you're talking about," Shaq said when his co-host joked about Howard's comments. He then called Dwight a "role player" who "played well," but also added that he "didn't do nothing." When it was suggested that Dwight could be a future Hall of Famer, Shaq appeared to hush the conversation in an attempt to move on.
