Former NBA center Shaquille O’Neal took his opportunity before the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona International to diss Dwight Howard.


When asked about Dwight Howard’s move to Houston, he responded: “It was expected. Not everyone can handle being under the bright lights.”

“It was a safe move to go to a little town like Houston.”

Shaq’s views here are not surprising at all. He has been ripping Howard for years, going back to his playing days when Howard was a member of the Orlando Magic. A large part of his distaste for Howard stemmed from Howard’s co-opting of the “Superman” nickname that Shaq used earlier in his career.
