NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal was the beast, okay? If you swallowed too much of the Kobe Kool-Aid you may be under the impression that Shaq Diesel somehow underperformed. Ain’t so. As Shaq likes to say, “Google me.”
You’ll find three straight Finals MVPs, four rings, and the most dominant player of his era. How do you get to be the beast? Shaq just shared his favorite inspirational motivator, Eric Thomas the Hip Hop Preacher. Shaq shared the clip below and wrote: “No caption needed just listen and learn.”
Preacher Thomas takes Kobe Bryant’s Mamba Mentality and brings it home hard. Kobe’s Mamba and Shaq’s hip hop preacher are delivering the same message: you gotta put in the work, nothing is given, you win because you put in the work, you honor the process.
You see, Shaq and Kobe had more in common than we thought — all along. Nobody gets to the pinnacle of their game — even 7-footers — without outworking the competition.
