O’Neal, 48, randomly picked on Gobert over the weekend because the four-time champion believes the international standout is significantly overpaid.
After all, Gobert’s recent five-year, $205 million contract extension with the Jazz was the largest deal for a center in NBA history. On the new season, the 28-year-old is averaging 14.5 points, 13.7 rebounds and 2.2 blocks per game.
Clearly, O’Neal doesn’t believe Gobert is on the same level as him.
Yet, the Jazz big man took the high road when responding to O’Neal’s tirade of shots. It will interesting to see how much longer Gobert can keep up the kindness.
