Shaq on Heat's BIG 2?

So, what is it this time for Shaq?

After retiring from the NBA [finally!], Shaquille O'Neal finally found a new career as a NBA analyst. I'm not sure if I'm going to laugh at this big joke or be hacked off [all he ever did was babble].

According to Shaq, “Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, you know, they’re great players, they’re probably the greatest backcourt ever assembled. And you know, they’re going to get back. They’re going to get back. They play well, they went through a lot, they put a lot of pressure on themselves. That’s how they like it. And they will be back.” Of course, they will be back that is if there's no NBA lockout. [2011-12 NBA Schedule]
“The Miami Heat, they’ve got a lot of great players, the `Big 2.’ They will be back,” - Shaquille O'Neal
Of course, he'll be talking about Dwayne Wade and LeBron James and how good they were. He knows them, no doubt about that. But not even recognizing the contributions that Chris Bosh made for the Miami Heat is being arrogant. I'm NOT huge a Bosh fan but I can say that he's done fair enough for the team and he's had his moments too, and so does Wade and James.

So, Shaq please shut up. You're not helping much. NBA fans are pretty anxious about the lockout that should probably be the one you're analyzing, right? Or maybe you're all about the BIG TALK.
