Last night, the Lakers hosted an All Access event at the Staples Center, with plenty of big names in attendance, including the one and only, Shaquille O’Neal. During his interviews, Shaq was asked about taking money to attend LSU…and the Big Aristotle didn’t hold back.
Full Shaq quote on his time at LSU: "Yes, they paid very well. Statute of limitations is up. I can talk about it…That’s right baby, LSU.”

Knowing Shaq, the answer was half joke, half truth. Although he later claimed he was just joking around, you know the big man got PAID to head to LSU. LA Times reporter Mike Bresnahan stated Shaq “seemed to be speaking honestly” when delivering the quote.
Good for you, Ben Simmons….good for you.
