Shaq: LeBron James shouldn't chase championships anymore

LeBron James #23 of the Cleveland Cavaliers attempts a layup against the Golden State Warriors in the first half during Game Three of the 2018 NBA Finals at Quicken Loans Arena

"I've got a teenage boy, a pre-teen and a little girl that wasn't around as well". So I got four.

If more teams had the financial means to afford LeBron without gutting their roster (like, say, the Washington Wizards, New Orleans Pelicans, or Portland Trail Blazers), the Sixers wouldn't be as attractive as they're now made out to be. "So I was trying to make quick stops to get it. Phoenix, Cleveland, Boston".

While that quote may only be relevant for Thunder fans, much of the almost two-minute interaction with George focused on the idea of pairing up with The King in L.A. and if George wants to play with James. He would move to the Heat in 2004 and win his fourth and final championship in 2006.

Shaquille O'Neal earned his first three championships with the Los Angeles Lakers.

The rumours are running fast and furious around the NBA's most prized upcoming free agent, and the Akron Beacon Journal's Marla Ridenour doesn't believe James will end up in Houston to challenge the mantle of the Golden State Warriors.

But O'Neal knows exactly how that ends up and doesn't want to see James go down the same route.

Rudy Giuliani Says Mueller Probe Must Be Suspended 'Tomorrow' After DOJ Report
Rudy Giuliani speaks at the Iran Freedom Convention for Human Rights and democracy in Washington, May 5, 2018. Democrats have said the report provided no grounds to undercut Mueller's continuing investigation.

This approach will be rather arduous, but worthwhile for the fans - as going from winning 50-plus games per season to a potential tank job can be a rude awakening for a fan base that has been in the NBA Finals for four straight seasons.

Since returning to Cleveland, he's reached the Finals the last four seasons and won one championship.

Shaq believes that James's legacy is already secure, and going after more titles won't add much to it.

"Somebody told me a long time ago - they said your book is already set [before the later stages of your career]. You can add index pages toward the end, but your book is already set", O'Neal added.

My dad didn't take that too well and started ranting great facts about the city of Houston, but I said, "Fool, you can talk about Houston as much as you want to, but LeBron can't hear us". "He done already passed up legends; he done already made his mark - he has three rings". His mentality now is probably is: 'I want to get four before Steph [Curry] does.' That's probably his mentality now.
