Shaq says there is no competition for LeBron… Shannon Brown will have something to say about that. Hey LeBron, grow some and enter…

Sports Illustrated: Shaquille O’Neal has a plan to save the NBA’s All-Star dunk contest: Bring back the superstars and do it for devastated Haiti.

Following Tuesday night’s win over Toronto, O’Neal was asked if he would like to see teammate LeBron James participate in this year’s event. That’s when he offered his idea. He would like to see former dunk champion Vince Carter, Kobe Bryant and others take part along with James.

“As his manager, I will only allow ‘Bron to do the dunk contest if Vince Carter comes back out,” O’Neal said. “If Kobe comes back out and if another big name comes back out. If we could get a big prize and have half of the money go to the people of Haiti and the other half to the winner.

“The guys that are in it, no disrespect to them, but there won’t really be any competition for LeBron. I want to see Kobe. I want to see Vince and I will allow my client to enter.”

Could he make it happen?

“I’m saying it now,” O’Neal said. “So tweet it. Facebook it. E-mail it and hopefully it gets out. Vince, we’re calling you out. Kobe, we’re calling you out. We’re calling everybody out. If those guys step up in the dunk contest, then I will allow my client to step up.”

James has decided to skip next month’s event in Dallas after originally saying he would participate.

    client?? hahahahah

    dont you mean your bitch shaq. that nigga cant dunk for shit, same old tomahawk dunk, only reason its so good is cause the nba puts it on #1 in highlights and he does it strongly.

    he cant compare to niggas like kobe, carter, drexler, jordan… those are what you call athletes, change their shit up everytime.

    so shaq, go call your bitch and tell him he aint go shit on those people… hahah they have nothing on lebronx? please dont make me laugh, your bitch aint got nothing on them…

    i see when he left la, he took that bitch ass attitude with him, and his greedy ass wants to give half the money to haiti? if you ask me this is more of a stunt to make money for the nba rather than haiti, if the money truly goes to haiti, give all of it to haiti, greedy ass motherfucker.

    “we’re”… oh , i see. so lebronx the bitch told shaq to say what he did, cause lebronx has no cajones, got dunked on, confiscates videos and says nike doesnt want pick up games filmed, greedy mother fucker took the 3 seconds of fame from a college player just so his image isnt tarnished. lebronx is a joke, snaq is a joke, oh-hi-hoe is a joke, clitoris-land is a joke, traveliers are a joke… when lebronx goes to the bronx, then the knicks will be a joke too, everywhere lebronx goes he is a joke. greedy ass nigga, go tell yo momma to sit down after nursin you for your whole life, arrogant mother fucker

    as for snaq, the food is getting to his head, he woulda said this about kobe if he was playing with la, he woulda said this about carter if he was playing for magic, he woulda said this about nate if he played for knicks…

    face it, shaq is a bitch wherever he goes. lebronx is too. lets see what snaq has to say when his contract is up and isnt resigned while lebronx leaves for the bronx…

    • roscoe

      Reading these comments makes me dumber everyday.

    • lkrhtr

      lol pwned you dont know shit you a bitch for saying lebron cant dunk hes the best dunker without even having a competition trust me if the were to do it he would emmbarris everone your a clown who dont know shit

      • http://lakersnation showtime4eva

        lots can dunk!!!!!lepunk cant ledunk as good as shannon”cannon”brown….thats the bottom line!!!!!!!!!!

  • lakers2000

    if you ask me this is more of a stunt to make money for the nba rather than haiti, if the money truly goes to haiti, give all of it to haiti, greedy ass motherfucker.

    Colorful, but I have to agree! Shaq needs attention again. I think he needs to STFU. Go Lakers!!!!!

  • Day

    Don’t say ‘Shaq just needs attention’ because he was asked the question, he didn’t go out for his own publicity to say them. He just answered the question in the interview.

    And can you really disagree? The slam dunk contests have become a joke. Back in the day when you had Jordan, Kobe, Vince, etc were the best part of the all star game. The biggest names in the game came out to entertain the fans. Now its just filled with bench players.

    I would love to see Kobe, Vince, LeBron, Nate, Shannon, and all of the other good dunkers but the big names shouldn’t back out of it.

    • lakers2000

      No. They asked if he wanted to see Lebrick, not Kobe, Vince ect… Shaq knows Kobe is injured and is playing more of his “look at how smart I think I am” funny business. Read a little more carefully next time.

      • Day

        The fact is, who doesn’t want to see Kobe, LeBron, and Vince in a dunk contest?
        He called out LeBron just as much as he did Kobe or Vince, maybe you should take your own advice.

        • http://TheLakersNation laffs atyo momma

          im sure he called out lebron by saying that the others dont have anything on him and that lebron is his bitch, i mean client.

          • Day

            LeBron probably would beat the people in the dunk contest.

        • justtheobviousfacts

          nobody wants to see them in a dunk contest. they are too old.

          • LA213ALLDAY

            Kobe and Vince in the dunk contest? Theyre in their 30’s! lol. And I for one don’t think lebron is great at being creative with his dunks. His a great GAME dunker, but what you see in the game is what you’ll get in a contest. Alot of height and above the rim action, but NO CREATIVITY. As for Shaq calling Lebron his “client”, dude GET REAL, YOUR LEBRONS CLIENT!! What lebron says GOES, your opinion don’t matter to him or the cleveland organization fatboy! lol

        • lakers2000

          I think you’ve got some Shaq on your chin.

  • heyho

    Snaq tell me how lebron ass taste!

  • AllthewayLA

    call all FORMER dunk champions? Then lebrick cant, cause he hasnt won anything yet.

  • Lakers 24 7

    Kobe’s mad banged up and he doesn’t need another injury to that already tweaked back he has while attempting a dunk.

    • http://TheLakersNation laffs atyo momma

      dw, this was a stunt by shaq to try and say “fuck haiti, i wanna make money for the nba, and send some to haiti to pretend that haiti was the reason, i suck lebrons dick so i wanna call out the older players who cant dunk like they used to so my bitch lebron can beat them cause he cant beat nate or shannon, im also an attention seeking whore who eats alot of dick thats why im fat”

  • pauer

    Shaq’s just trying to stay relevant in an age where his skills are surpassed by younger, newer talent.

    He should just retire while he has some dignity left.

    And he acts like Lebron would only enter if there was “real competition” when we all know he wont enter because he is afraid of being showed up by someone less well known than him.

  • rudy

    Number 1, lebron hasnt proven anything yet so you cant say he should be mentioned in the same breath as other dunkcontest greats. SECOND, vince and kobe have way too much mileage for them to properly compete. Thats like asking the glide and spud webb to dunk against dwight and nate. Asking them to come back when theyve already given their legacy to the contest is too greedy even for a 400 pound has-been. THIRD, lebrons much like floyd mayweather. If theres any chance for them to get beaten, they back out and talk even greater smack. LASTLY, its been proven that shaq is tactless and nonsensical with his quips so we really should take this with a grain of salt. This is perhaps the only way for him to get featured in ESPN — this and stealing people’s wives. Bye shaq. See ya.

  • Mbenga

    Maan, im getting tired of shaqs old ass talking about kobe, he needs to hop off and stay on his bf’s LeBron, but i doubt he ever will ni66as a beech.

  • http://TheLakersNation PWNED

    dude, doesnt this old mofo become a bitch to whichever player he plays for? first it was kobe is the best, then there is no one better than dwade, then nash is the best pg, now its lebron has the highest iq and is the best player. what hte fuck, let him talk the shit, once playoffs hit he aint gon have shit to talk about.

    by the way, cavs tried to trade shaq for another player… hahahahah im serious, look it up

  • http://TheLakersNation PWNED

    hey why do people bring up kobe’s rape charges when shaq had sex with gilbert arena’s fiancee. now we know the truth to why gilbert brought the gun, screw gambling, he wanted shaq’s body.
    fuck that, you bring up kobe? that was nothing, shaq had sex countless times with mrs. arenas. his wife went on to divorce him too thats how bad it was.
    kobe’s wasnt as bad as shaq.

  • Robert

    What an idiot! Another Snaq Stunt. LeCrap wouldn’t compete with this new crop of guys (esp. Shannon Brown, who can fly higher than the others) in case he would lose to them. So, Snaq decided to ‘call out’ currently injured players (Kobe, Vince Carter, D-Wade – all 3 playing with ‘something’ but Kobe is clearly the most injured of the 3) so that would tilt the deck in favor of LeCheat.
    Also, throwing in the ‘Haiti’ issue is a cheap shot. Using the “dunk contest” for that? If the 3 ‘called out’ refuse, are they refusing to contribute to the solving the Haiti disaster? A little guilt there, eh? Anyway, I’m sure they may have already donated, or could – doesn’t have to be through Snaq’s idea.
    Also, if the 3 ‘called out’ end up participating, you know that the NBA will pay off the judges, and have LeJunk win the contest. Maybe they all know he won’t win a Championship while Kobe is still playing, and has to scramble for scraps (like MVP, dunk contest winner, etc.).
    Kobe has already won the dunk contest, and hasn’t participated in years. Why would he now? He def. can’t with a broken finger – he even mentioned at the beginning of the year, that it ‘hurts’ to dunk. Slamming the hand on the rim isn’t ‘patting a pillow’. That would be the end of his finger for the whole playoffs.
    One more thing (before I go, since I’m pissed off about this). This takes away from Shannon Brown, who is one of the most spectacular dunkers in the league. Snaq is just jealous. Nobody in Cleveland like that (yes, I’m including LeSlam, who has just 1, only 1, dunk move).
    Snaq, go away. People want to see the new guys in these contests. Heck fire, Dwight Howard even considers himself too old for that, which is why he isn’t doing it this year. Let the young guys get something in.
    Hey Snaq, I have an idea – challenge Kobe, Vince, and Steve Nash to a game of soccer during All Star break, and donate all proceeds to Haiti. I’d like to see Steve kick your a$$ for stealing his idea about “Nash vs.” (I mean, “Shaq vs.”).

  • BE_A_LakerFan

    Shaq is a dumb azz

  • 242LakerFan

    If Snaq-attackin-from-da-back-wit-da-whack-pack thinks those guys couldn’t compete with LeBaby, he needs to check out the footage from the HS dunk contest with LeBooBoo, ShanWOW and Von Wafer. ShanWOW had that won, except he missed a dunk and the LeBonBon hype machine, already in full overdrive, kicked in to give him the win on rep alone.
    LeByatch is scared to go against those Go-Go-Gadget Calf Muscles again. They brought back those ugly-ass yellow Cavs unis to camouflage the foot-wide streak down his back.

    • WifelovesLuke

      Go-Go-Gadget? Great post, 242!!!!!!

  • justtheobviousfacts

    Kobe dunks very seldom these days. His knees are bad, and he’s in his 12th year? WHY WOULD HE EVEN TRY TO DO IT? You know what, this is one of the dumbest quotes Shaq has ever made, Ever.

  • http://57.amklac laffs atu

    kobes legacy of worst shooting %ever for a so-called watered down MVP….hows that taste roberto?

  • ZestyItalian2

    Anybody else find it hilarious how much of an old man Shaq sounds like here? Like somebody who still thinks White Snake and Van Halen are the biggest acts in music.

    If there were a true “superstar” dunk contest, you certainly wouldn’t see Kobe and Vince, both of whom are over 30 years old, participating.

    A superstar dunking contest would look a little more like this:

    Josh Smith
    Kevin Durant
    Dwyane Wade
    LeBron James
    Rudy Gay/OJ Mayo
    Derrick Rose (?)

    • http://TheLakersNation laffs atyo momma

      old man? no.
      bitch? hell yes.
      shaq has been a bitch wherever hes gone to play. he will always be a bitch. the nigga shouldnt be saying shit like that bout someone 12 years younger but should be vice versa where lebronx suckin snaq’s dick instead. disrespect right there on lebrons part. arrogant motherfucker.
      so what if kobe has bad fg%, the dude takes jumpshots and has a mother fucken 45% fg. how is that bad for all jumpshots. the nigga lebron drives in and had a mother fucken game with 0-7 3P and 8-18 FG. shut the fuck up if you gonna talk shit like that, lebron cant rely on his ugly shot so he uses his steroid abused body to drive in and relies on the refs to bail him out.
      that what you call great? no thats what i call a pussy. arrogant. mother fucker. up him self. overhyped. fuck lebronx. fuck laffs atu, go suck lebronx dick and tell me how it tastes.

  • http://TheLakersNation laffs atyo momma

    watch how lebronx treats his coach like a bitch

    • lakerman1

      That was a cheap shot. In the near future LB will show his true colors and be taken down from his pedestal and exposed for the A-HOLE he really is. Its only a matter of time before arrogance like his gets the better of him. He should talk to Tiger about how being to full of yourself only bites you in the Ass later when the Perfect Role Model you portray is exposed for the True person you really are. I would rather be A Charles Barkley then a make believe phony because that is all LB is. I am so happy they stopped that we are all witness crap. Witness another championship for Kobe Mr Lebron.

  • http://TheLakersNation laffs atyo momma

    got that link from a twitter account lol

  • http://TheLakersNation Marwan..

    Thats the link from MY twitter. Its ok, no harm done. As much as I dislike LeBron’s attitude, he’s a great player, but that video “laffs atyo momma” posted shows the REAL LeBron.

  • roscoe

    This is horribly stupid comment by Shaq. I agree that the stars should be in it, not the role players, but get Wade / Lebron / Dwight in there, not the 31 year olds LOL.

  • gugy

    Shaq is only news when he opens his mouth.

    He knows it and this, that’s why he cannot STFU.


    Lebron KNOWS he won’t win the dunk contest cus all we’ll see is a bunch of tomahawk dunks with no creativity. That’s why he’s not entering, he doesn’t wanna hear all the “thats all lebron has to offer” jokes. Lame


    It’s a nice publicity stunt and a great way to bring back the flair and pizazz in the Slam Dunk Contest again. But I somehow doubt that it’s Shaq’s original idea. I think that he stole the idea from someone else just like how he stole the Shaq VS. show idea off of Steve Nash! The Big Snaq has called himself a lot of things in the NBA, but he really should dub this as his permanent nickname in REAL LIFE… “THE BIG THIEF”! Because that’s all he does, steal ideas and wives or fiance’s from everyone else and calls them his own. What a FCUKIN A$$HOLE!

    HEY SNAQ, STFU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • lakerman1

    Shaq would love for Kobe to Injure himself to the point to where he would be out for the rest of the season leaving the door wide open for Cleveland because that is the only way Lebron will get a ring so when he makes his exit to NY the fans in Ohio would only hate him half as much. Shaq is only good for Chuckles and thats it. Say what you want about the Kobester at least he does not get involved in Oneal’s mindless dribble.

  • mamba1108

    Just Shaq begging for attention hes not getting these days. If you are going to have a dunk contest with past stars like Kobe and Vince then Lebron doesn’t belong to even be mention in that same category.

  • Robert

    Just found out the show “around the horn” that @Touching_ was right – apparently sportwriter Jay Mariotti announced the idea yesterday, on the show, well before Snaq ‘stole’ it. They replayed the snippet, and it’s clear.
    But it’s still a ridiculous idea. The All Star weekend is 15 hours of commercials, and 3-4 hours of events and games (total). They could easily fit in ANOTHER event, and donate THOSE proceeds to Haiti. Maybe a game of 21 with LeBron, Kobe, and D-Wade, or something like that. Kobe & other ‘previous champion’ veterans dunking is out of the question.
    But, idea or not, this is still Snaq grandstanding again. Stealing an idea, etc. Look – we’re all talking about it, and some of us are pissed. Snaq has nothing intelligent or original to say anymore. Go away Snaq, you had your moments (yes, great ones with the Lakers, and thanks!). Time to wind down.

  • Adrianyj

    Shaq, is this ur way to get attention? Stop the bullshit. Why Vince Carter have to listen to you? And why Kobe Bryant have to listen to you? You r just nothing but an old big shit. I dont think so LeBron got chance to win, he might jump high, he might be dunking with power. But he doesnt have the most important ingredi…ents to win the Slam Dunk Contest = Creativity!!!! Shaq, stop the bullshit!!!

  • Robert

    Snaq should include himself, if he’s calling out anybody. Both Kobe and Vince (and even Dwight Howard) need their legs for the playoffs. It takes a lot to prepare for the dunk contest, and takes a lot out of you (Dwight Howard even said this). Playing the ‘Haiti card’ was unfair.
    However, all these guys should participate in the H-O-R-S-E contest. THAT would be interesting, and require no preparation. They should increase it from 3-5 to 10 guys. Let LeDick perform his ‘cross court’ circus shot – Kobe his 40 foot 3 pointer. etc. etc.

  • joshLA

    Interesting but lame. why would kobe be in a dunk contest with a BROKEN finger idiot shaq. HIS mvp season kobe had a lot of sick dunks (member new orleans peeps?). Y didnt he thnk of this then (dont say haiti) becuz lebron would have been embarassed. HE knows vince is old and kobe isnt 100% and lebron would easily win. I’d like to see DWADE who dunked over sideshowbob and MElo. I think bron is afraid hell LOSE to shannon AGAIN and tries to justify his pulling out of it by having shaq do wut he does best….talk.

    the way i watch and read everything lakers but dont remember hearing kobe say “IT HURTS” to dunk. IS this becuz of bad fingers which hes had the past seasons or just after doing it so much after so many years. It just doesnt make sense that he would say that NOW after dunking for 13 seasons. DOes it hurt more now (obviously)??? somebody, answers?????????

  • onlyone laker fan in L.A.

    Shaq what are you going to do ?
    Calling out Kobe shows you are a insecure fat slob.
    You need to a lesson from Pau,Kobe they won sportsman of the year award. They dont run there mouths.
    Your jealous your not a Laker on Kobes way to a title.
    Ha fat ass go suck La brons dick eat a double double and shut the fuck up
