He's the guy who has become a mentor for a young defense, while still young himself at 27.
So if you see him in the store, be nice to him. He's earned that much.
Have people been mean to Shaq in the store?
It seems that he played with two awesome LB's in Davis and Luke, but just hasn't stepped up, but is being paid very well.
In the Jermaine Carter interview he talked how he learned how to study Os from Luke and he really showed out last year.
Did Shaq not learn those study techniques, did he not implement them, or is it just not something that he's really good at? Because I don't think his play was because he was 10 pounds too light.
"But this year, let's come together as a defense, let's be more than just playing as teammates, let's play for each other. Let's play as brothers"
He also played through some shoulder injuries that kept him from being the best version of himself. Now healthy, he was able to spend enough time in a weight room this year to add 10 pounds, after playing in the 225-pound range last year.
