Why Steve Nash Hates Shaq

TMZ has this video of Shaq sparring with Oscar De La Hoya for Steve Nash's his reality show – Shaq Vs.

According to the Arizona Republic, Shaq flat out stole the idea for the show from his former teammate:

Shortly after O'Neal was traded to the Suns in February 2008, Nash
mentioned to his new teammate a reality show he was pursuing. It would
feature the Suns point guard taking on professional athletes in their
own sport.

The topic didn't come up again until early in the 2008-09 season,
when O'Neal boarded the Suns bus and told the team he would be starring
in a new reality show in which he would be taking on, you got it,
professional athletes in their own sport.

"You mean the idea you stole from me?" one Suns representative said he heard Nash say.

Nash eventually sought out an entertainment lawyer, according to
sources, which is why he now has an executive-producer credit and the
compensation that comes with it.

What a dick move. I always viewed Shaq as this loveable guy who didn't have enemies. Could it be Kobe Bryant isn't entirely at fault for Shaq's departure from LA? Watch your back LeBron.

Around the league, the Magic have signed Jason Williams. Amare Stoudemire says the odds on him playing in Phoenix after this season are 50-50. And Allen Iverson tweeted that he's close to deal, but the Knicks will not be his new home.

    The Magic signed “White Chocolate” Jason Williams, not “Dark Gun-Firing Chocolate” Jayson Williams.
    As for Steve Nash: Shaq stole your show, you stole an MVP from him. Fair trade.

  • Steve nash never stole an MVP from Shaq sal
    And you just realzed it was just as much shaqs fault as it was kobes for there faulout? really? hes only done it to penny hardaway, kobe, dwyane wade, nash/amare, next up: lebron….
    shaq is a huge lovable personality in sports that everyone lets off the hook, the reality is hes the mose self absored buffoon who is getting more and more bitter by the day

    I don’t think Nash could carry a show.

    One copycat after another… Nash probably stole the idea from “Dahani Jones Show” on the Travel Channel. Shaq Vs. was okay it ran too long and the wannabe announcers were corny. Why not hire a model as the studio and sideline announcer. Shaq? Go ahead take my idea it’s free.

  • My bad….it’s Jason.

  • Sal

    Okay, Shaq came in 2nd in 04-05 and I thought he was a better pick than Nash. Meh.

  • I bleed green in L.A.

    Don’t get it twisted. Kobe is still the devil incarnate.

  • Right, that’s hardly an original idea. Dhani’s show is awesome by the way.
    I think Nash is pretty funny, but he can’t touch Shaq’s appeal.
    And remember, he who hesitates, masturbates

  • I just noticed your new avatar. Care to explain the photo?

  • I would much rather see Nash in this show than Shaq. Real competition, not clownishness.

  • KY Celts fan

    the show is meant to be clownishness. and nash isn’t popular enough to star in a reality show. but it was a dick move on shaq’s part. bad form.
    btw, i also love Dahani Tackles the Globe. Same concept, obscure sports, lots of fun.

  • When is Shaq going to fight Brock Lesnar or Shane Carwin? I’ll watch that episode.
