Shaq not attending Lakers games, would rather watch Steph

Warriors

It's impossible to not enjoy watching the Warriors play basketball right now. 

Tied for the best record in the NBA, the Warriors (21-4) are back to being must-watch television

Former Los Angeles Lakers superstar Shaquille O'Neal, in fact, prefers watching Steph Curry and the Warriors over his beloved Lakers, who are currently the No. 6 seed in the Western Conference. 

On the latest episode of The Big Podcast with Shaq, the Hall of Famer revealed that he will no longer be attending Lakers games, and it's not because of the name change from Staples Center to Crypto.com Arena. 

"I'm not even going, I'm not even going anymore," Shaq said. "Who wanna watch them people play?" 

“I don’t celebrate seventh place at all. I celebrate Steph Curry. That’s who I celebrate. I can go to Golden State and watch him play."

Can you blame him? 

The Lakers, who added superstar Russell Westbrook in the offseason to a team that already had LeBron James and Anthony Davis, have been quite the disappointment so far. With three of the game's brightest stars on one team, it's understandable that Shaq is disappointed with a mediocre 14-13 record. 

With Curry 10 3-pointers away from breaking Ray Allen's all-time NBA record, Shaq will have another reason to celebrate Curry and the Warriors soon enough.
