Retired NBA big man Shaquille O’Neal may no longer wear a team uniform, but he will forever be considered one of the best entertainers the game has ever seen. In a recent interview, O’Neal listed the five NBA players he would like to fight. At number one was former New York Knick, Charles Oakley.
The Big Aristotle was known for his incredible size and power while on the basketball court; he could thwart defenders penetrating into the lane with the ease and that helped him win four NBA championships. However, Shaq was also involved in multiple fights during his time in the NBA and used those skills to take down his opponent.
Nevertheless, Charles Oakley developed the reputation of being a feisty defender and who wasn’t afraid to get his hands dirty in the paint. Oakley was a defensive minded player and getting involved in altercations were common for him.
Shaq versus Oakley, should be a great fight.
