LeBron James has issued a response to Shaquille O'Neal's assertion that players do not fear him in the same way they did with Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant. Shaq made the remarks on his podcast, "The Big Podcast with Shaq," last week. "I've heard players, including myself, say they feared Mike [Michael Jordan]," O'Neal said. "I've heard players from your generation say they feared Kobe... I've never really heard any player say they feared LeBron." It seems LeBron caught wind of this because he shared a post on his Instagram story shortly after. The timing of LeBron's post suggests that it was not a coincidence.

LeBron and Shaq have a history of friendly banter, so this exchange is likely in the same vein. There has always been mutual respect between the two NBA stars. It is also worth mentioning that LeBron and Shaq were teammates on the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2010. Considering Shaq's personality, he may not let this comment be the final word, so fans should stay tuned for his response.
