There’s rarely a dull moment when Shaquille O’Neal has a chance to speak in public.
However, the legendary LSU basketball star may have said too much this time.
While discussing his time at LSU with the Los Angeles Times’ Mike Bresnahan, Shaq admitted that the university compensated him — and well — laughing as he provided details to the reporter.
“Yes, they paid very well,” Shaq said. “Hey, the statute of limitations is up.”
Shaq’s son, Shareef O’Neal, is a four-star forward that holds offers from both UCLA and Southern Cal.
The younger O’Neal is the nation’s No. 17 power forward in the Class of 2018, and his father expressed a desire for his son to follow his footsteps at LSU in order to receive the same — potentially improper — benefits that he did.
“You can probably get a house, you can get two cars,” Shaq told the Los Angeles Daily News’ Mark Medina.
“I’ll set it up for you. I know some people.”
While Shaq’s nonchalant demeanor makes it a bit more difficult to tell if he’s being honest or not, it is certainly something either LSU or the former NBA All-Star could get heat about in the next couple of days.
