Shaquille O’Neal, Despite Beating Patrick Ewing 15 Times, Cried On National TV Over Knicks Legend Being Disrespected
Shaquille O’Neal has played against some of the greatest players in the history of the NBA. Everybody from Michael Jordan to LeBron James have had to deal with a version of ‘The Big Aristotle’ at some point of their career. When it comes to men at his position, he’s had a similar litany of legends go up against him.
Guys like Hakeem Olajuwon and Patrick Ewing proved to be a thorn in his side for quite some time. The former of those two had built up quite the mid 90s rivalry with O’Neal, with them facing off against one another in the 1995 NBA Finals. Hakeem’s Rockets would go on to sweep the Magic in those Finals.
