“He’s looking at me, he’s like ‘Okay, good game, little Frye’… Basically, that’s screwing me up”


There have been several attempts to explain Shaquille O’Neal as a player. Former NBA champion Channing Frye thinks Shaq is a tree that moves like a cat. He said Shaq is a combination of Rudy Gobert and Giannis Antetokounmpo.

Shaq was seven foot one and 300 pounds tall. His body helped him punish small defenders in the post. However, he moved well despite his size.

On “Road Trippin’ with RJ and Channing,” the hosts debated who was the toughest center to guard. Frye first acknowledged Yao Ming before talking about how Shaq was a force.

“I caught ’05 Shaq, and when you watch the video, you’re like, ‘Fuck, he’s so big.’ As a human, he’s not supposed to move like that.

“I was playing in New York, we’re young,” he continued. “I know he probably came out the night before, so I’m like, I’m not going to bullshit. I’m just going to let this game pass. Third quarter is coming, and he’s fine. They’re down six He looks at me. He says, “Okay, good game, little Frye. We have to win this now,” and he basically fucks me up for the whole quarter.

“There’s no fouling. Imagine trying to fouling a tree moving like a cat and just dunk after hook hit after dunk. It’s just impossible to move a human that big, and he’s mean . That’s another problem.”

After Richard Jefferson explained that Shaq isn’t getting as many calls as he should, Frye continued:

“Imagine the size of Gobert with the attitude of Giannis.”

Detroit Pistons legend John Salley has previously expressed amazement at how Shaq works.

“Shaq was the most phenomenal specimen of a human being. He can swim. He looks like an ogre but he can swim, breakdance and rhyme. There’s like a 5’6′ dude inside of his chest that controls everything. He like Kevin Hart is inside Shaq. That’s it.”

Although he is not among the most talented players in the league, his ball handling skills were impressive. Even though Frye did a decent job painting a picture, some may argue he didn’t do it justice.


Shaquille O’Neal is arguably the most dominant player in NBA history

The NBA has seen its share of great centers, ranging from Wilt Chamberlain to Bill Russell to Hakeem Olajuwon. However, no player was as physically dominant in the paint as Shaq.

The two-time scoring champion was a monster athlete despite his height. His low post work was sublime, but he still had stellar court vision to make plays where needed.

Teams suffered against Shaquille O’Neal because they could find a way to stop him. The double team never worked. O’Neal fought his way through most or dropped a penny for his teammate.

Shaq has won four NBA championships. Three came during his time with the LA Lakers. He won the last ring in partnership with Dwyane Wade in Miami.
