Shaq: ‘Little Town Houston’ Safe for Dwight
Shaquille O’Neal has always been hard on center Dwight Howard. With Howard leaving the Lakers for the Houston Rockets, O’Neal was certain to get his jabs in quickly.
“It was expected,” said O’Neal of Howard’s defection during a news conference Saturday at Daytona International Speedway. “We’ve all been in L.A., and not a whole lot of people can handle being under the bright lights.”
O’Neal was serving as a grand marshal for NASCAR’s Sprint Cup Series race.
“Everybody want to do it, but when you get there, there are certain pressures,” he continued. “I think it was a safe move for him to go to a little town like Houston. That’s right, little town. I said it.”
