Former Celtic Shaquille O’Neal snubbed on Jeannie Buss’ all-time Los Angeles Lakers list

If, as one of the handful of people to play for both franchises, former Boston Celtics big man Shaquille O’Neal has ever felt torn between the team he retired from and the club he won a trio of titles with, one would think he would side with the Los Angeles Lakers.

But a snub by Laker owner Jeannie Buss, who disclosed in July her all-time favorite players from the Los Angeles-based team, could tip the scales.

While the Big Aristotle seems to be taking it in stride publicly, that has not stopped others from debating just how egregious an omission it really was.

The hosts of the I Am Athlete “Paper Route” podcast recently convened to talk it over.

Check out the clip of their discussion embedded above to hear their thoughts on whether Buss did Shaq dirty with her admittedly subjective list.
