Shaquille O’Neal recently dropped a diss track named “The Big Man” targeting Shannon Sharpe following their debate, over the NBA MVP winner.

O’Neal shared his view that Shai Gilgeous Alexander from Oklahoma City was more deserving of the title compared to three time winner Nikola Jokic from the Denver Nuggets. In response Sharpe, a Hall of Famer in the NFL criticized Shaq on his podcast Nightcap accusing him of being “jealous”.

“Shaq should have five MVP’s,” Sharpe said. “He sees a guy like Nikola Jokic that’s not as dominant as him and gets three in four years. When you historically great, they talk about you as a great basketball player, the GOAT, and Shaq is never brought up. I think a part of him is envious of that… It’s hard for me to put someone in the GOAT conversation with one MVP. If Shaq would have had my work ethic, he would have had 40,000 points.”

Shaq fired back at Sharpe on Instagram through Instagram posts. The Diesel Really stirred things up when he dropped a full fledged diss track aimed at the popular podcaster.

“Oh, no Shannon Sharpe you’re way beneath me/ Your whole demeanor is faker than new rapper beef be/ You’re soft, before you get fly you’d rather tweet me/ I was in three different cars when you was in 3 […],” he raps.

In another post on Instagram, the 52 year old shared his frustrations with Sharpe in a message accusing him of wanting “click bait” headlines and wrongly labeling him as envious.

“You took me sticking up for @shai as jealousy?? shows how smart you are and how you say anything to get clicks. so here’s some click bait for you. if you ain’t ranked in the top ten in your profession , then you can’t speak on Me,” the former Lakers star fired back with some stats of his own. “don’t forget i know what you did to get where you at. me jealous lol sounds like you jealous. i kno you tryna stay relevant by gossiping on your podcast. we don’t believe you. you need more people and in case you forgot. 4 rings three finals Mvp top 50 and top 75. google me.”

He continued, “And to b quite frank all this new success you got, you still under me. u don’t kno my work ethic. but according [to you] i work less than you but im worth more than you. make it make sense. love you too. if you need help making money it’s better ways than gossiping. i’m too old for this sh*t. love always, the most dominant big man ever who never took it serious.”

“remember i don’t know you,” he added. “and in the words of @skipbayless im better than you. #g14classification i have it, you don’t, not in my profession. and your goat debate , never wanted to be the goat i wanted to be who you should [be] greet me as THE MOST DOMINANT EVER. #theapexpredator”
