Shaquille O’Neal thinks he knows exactly how a matchup between his Lakers and Michael Jordan’s Bulls would go down.
And you’re never going to believe this, but Shaq’s vision of such a matchup involves him dominating everyone in sight.
“I would’ve killed Luc Longley, Bill Wennington, [Bill] Cartwright,” O’Neal said on ESPN.
However, after initially claiming his Lakers would “easily” beat the 90’s Bulls, he took a step back and admitted his famously unreliable free-throw shooting would inevitably come into play.
“The factor is me, and my free-throw shooting,” he said.
“He would’ve tried the Hack-a-Shaq thing,” Shaq continued, referring to Phil Jackson, who in this fantasy situation would’ve been coaching both teams.
“I still would average like 28, 29, but the key would’ve been free throws. With me, it’s always 50-50.
“If I would’ve been on, we win. If I would’ve been off, we lose.”
