Question Do you think Shaq thinks he's better than Kareem

In the Rap he says that it's like saying Kareem is better than me and I think if you watch the video you know how it goes :)


So do you guys believe he thinks he's better than Kareem? Or is he better than Kareem in the 1st place?
He did say he was like messing around in the video because that's what MC's do.

I don't know if Shaq thinks he's better but a case could be made that Shaq better. Kareem had better longevity but I'm not sure if he was ever as good as 2000 or 2001 Shaq. Of course someone could easily make a case for Kareem as well.

In Shaq's mind, he probably thinks he's the greatest basketball player that ever played, so I'm going to have to say yes.....the guy has a ego problem.

In the past actually Shaq has said certain guys were better than him. I believe at one point or another he said Wilt was better than him although I can't remember if that was before he finished the 3peat or after.

Kareem is still the better basketball player, but Shaq is the most dominant Center in the NBA.

I thought it was early this decade. Maybe I'm wrong but I remember seeing him say it. I think even earlier this year around the time of his comments against Bill Walton he implied Bill Russell and a few others were atleast equal to him if not better. He said it with the whole big man's code of honor thing or whatever.

Shaq will go down as the most dominant center ever.

I think he means Kareem is more skilled but Shaq is more unstoppable.

IMO the more unstoppable player is the better player anyway.

Yeah... I know that is the point he was getting at. I just get tired of hearing the old cliché.

Shaq isnt more unstoppable(I thought the 2 minutes of the forth quarter counted)..At Shaq's peak he played in a league with no centers. Everyone that would have at least have been able to attempt to guard him had already left. Kareem played in a league of centers and still dominated.

Didn't he say Hakeem was better than him too? Or maybe that was right after his team got swept and before he went to LA.
