Shaq Comes Back To Miami
Sports Fan Insider
MIAMI (CBSMiami.com) – Former NBA superstar Shaquille O’Neal returns to Miami Monday night to sign copies of his autobiography, “Shaq Uncut: My Story.”
O’Neal once helped lead the Miami Heat to an NBA championship, but then burned the bridges in town as he was traded by the Heat.
Needless to say, Shaq has plenty of axes to grind with his former teams, including the Miami Heat.
He’s used his book and his book signing tour to generate plenty of buzz in hopes of selling plenty of copies.
Shaq called out Heat president Pat Riley for what Shaq said was his unfair treatment of players, specifically citing an incident with then-Heat point guard Jason Williams.
Shaq also took aim at two members of the Heat’s Big Three, Chris Bosh and LeBron James.
The Diesel said in his book that LeBron didn’t rise to the occasion in the playoffs as a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers or the Heat.
Shaq has also taken numerous digs at Bosh, who seems to understand that the Diesel is just doing his thing to sell books.
“I know the thing is entertainment,” Bosh told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel last month. “How are you going to get people to buy your book?”
