Shaquille O’Neal has retired from the NBA, but now he is an analyst. Moreover, he is not allowed to favour any team or say in public as to which team he is rooting. However, he gave his pick for the finals that he is expecting for this year’s NBA. He said:

β€œI’d like a Laker-Miami Heat matchup. Even though I’m an analyst, I’m always a fan. I’m not allowed to say I want this guy to win, but I just want to see some great basketball. I actually hope it goes to seven games.”

Shaquille O’Neal Wants The Victory Of Basketball In The End

β€œAt the end of the day, it’s all about the entity of basketball. It’s not about me and who I want to win. If I’m enjoying the game, then I’m sure 40 million other people will enjoy the game β€” and we need this right now.”
