But the always controversial O’Neal said something interesting when discussing Tim Duncan’s legacy on “The Big Podcast”. Shaq said he doesn’t like how people call Duncan and other power forwards big men. Shaq believes only centers should be called big men.
I only have one beef with how they’re throwing this around. They’re saying he’s one of the greatest big men. Do you count power forwards as big men? Because I don’t.
I was always taught that the big man was a center. I know we got new rules, and they don’t have the center spot no more, but no.
