This is an old story, but I wanted to give my take on it. Shaquille Oneal bashed Kyrie Irving for not getting vaccinated just a week after Shaq publicly stated that no one should be forced to take the vaccine. Why did Shaq sell out Kyrie?
I think Shaq did it to make himself look better in the eyes of the elites. Shaw knows what happens to people that speak against the mandates, so him bashing Kyrie was a way for him to make up for what he said the week prior. Shaq avoided being canceled by throwing Kyrie under the bus.
