NBA Corridor of Famer and present “NBA On TNT” analyst Shaquille O’Neal wasn’t a fan of an artist’s depiction of Donovan Mitchell dunking over the large man.
Final week, O’Neal and Mitchell have been within the information after a somewhat awkward interview. O’Neal informed Mitchell he believed that the younger NBA star “did not have what it takes to get to that subsequent stage.” He then requested Mitchell what he thought of that, and he merely responded, “Aight.”
This led to a dialogue on-line about how O’Neal handled the newer technology of gamers.
And as a joke, artist Cal So Scoped made a Photoshop of Mitchell dunking over the NBA legend.
It is a fairly innocent joke, and one you’d most likely suppose O’Neal would have a very good chuckle at.
Nicely, suppose once more.
O’Neal despatched a direct message to the artist telling them to, “Shut yo dumb ass up.”
What makes this look even worse for O’Neal is that he re-posted one other artist final 12 months of him dunking over Rudy Gobert. This was when O’Neal and Gobert have been having their own disagreements after the NBA legend mocked the Jazz middle’s contract.
So O’Neal can dish it, however cannot take it.
