Because you're the oldest guy in the NBA

Shaq (via NBA Facts & Rumors post about the Cavs):
"I like that they play together and nobody really worries about shots, " O'Neal said. "When I was with Cleveland, guys who couldn't even play were worried about shots. Why was Mo (Williams) taking 15 shots, and I'm only taking four? If LeBron takes 20 shots, that's cool."
The Cavs had a lot of problems last season but "not enough shots for Shaq" wasn't one of 'em.

You know how Shaq is. Really can't pimp someone without throwing someone else under the bus.

On the other hand, even Twan, the nicest of NBA nice guys, recently said the Cavs' chemistry was exposed as lacking in the playoffs. So maybe Shaq does have a bit of a legitimate beef.

I dunno. I feel it kinda goes like this:

EVERYONE IN THE WORLD: Shaq is old and looks awful.

Shaq: I need more shots because I'm Shaq and I've won before.

I like how Shaq says he prefers to be on a team where guys don't care about shotsas he's bitching about not getting enough shots
