Chris Bosh shrugs off criticism from Shaquille O’Neal

In his new book, Shaquille O’Neal smacks around Chris Bosh a little. Which is nothing new, Shaq called Bosh the “RuPaul of NBA big men” before, so this was almost tame in comparison.

But when asked about it, Bosh basically shrugged it off.

Our own Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel asked Bosh about the criticism.

“I know the thing is entertainment,” Bosh told the Sun Sentinel. “How are you going to get people to buy your book?

“So I don’t care about stuff that is said in the media or in books or pointed or directed toward somebody, because it’s really just a tactic and nothing else. He’s an author. He can write whatever he wants. If he sells a bunch, then congrats to him.”

Give Bosh a gold star. He’s been right twice today.

Bosh knew he was stepping into the brightest of spotlights when he agreed to go to the Heat with Dwyane Wade and LeBron James last year. He’s well paid, living in a place he likes and playing on a contending team. Living well is the best revenge. So let Shaq talk all he wants.

    Bosh needs to defend his tho, first MTO question sexuality & now Shaq keeps call him out, Now (Kurt) I get your, point about living well is the best revenge, but that only works towards critics of his game that make way less then he does, far as Shaq goes, Bosh should call him out for marrying reality star hoopz without a prenup that girl was broke as hell before she got with Shaq now she is set for life, SMH at Shaq aka the Big Dummy!!!

        You can call this site and Kurt Helin anything you want, problem is, as much as we can despise LBJ and the Miami Heat all Kurt says ia true. This specific article about Bosh is no different.

    Kurt, are you the Turtle of the Miami Heat Entourage?

    For how long is Shaq going to look for attention? Reminds me of an old bimbo who can’t accept that their prom-queen award was decades ago. Give it up Shaq, no one cares.
