在出现在 “Scoop B Radio” podcast with Brandon Robinson, O’Neal talked about the Nets and how they put up minimal effort against him.
O’Neal, who was recognized as NBA Finals MVP, averaged 36.3 点数, 12.3 篮板和 2.8 blocks per game, and he and led the 洛杉矶湖人队 to a four-game sweep of the Nets.
“It was boring,” O’Neal said of squaring off against the Nets that year. “I actually got mad when we were playing in Jersey. You think [then-Nets center] Todd MacCulloch is going to stop me at the crib in Jersey in front of my grandma and grandpa? 小号—! 没有. Stop it.”
Born in Newark, 新泽西州, O’Neal dominated for the Lakers during that series. MacCulloch, Jason Collins and Aaron Williams were the rotation for the Nets at center. Williams most notably fouled out for the Nets in Game 3 after playing just seven minutes of the game.
