Anything involved with the Lakers that upsets Dwight hurts our chances to re-sign him.
What else is Shaq going to say to upset him....there is a big danger here.
This is the same buffoon who asked Kobe how his @ss tastes and that Kobe couldn't win without him.....childish, immature, pompous and rude to say the least.
I don't think anything Shaq says would hurt the chances. It might actually present more of a challenge for Dwight. Think about it, Shaquille left on very bad terms with the lakers. We would never resign him for anything. Not even a minimum.
This can make Dwight want to be "the better center" in LA and to be loved more by the fans. To bring up your point about "tell me how my @ss tastes", Kobe after that won an olympic gold that very summer, two back to back championships, while shaq was stripped of his badge and couldn't be a sheriff anymore lol.
Any star that has played with Shaq can testify that when he's bad, he's pretty bad. Kobe went through this, D-Wade, Lebron, Nash. I guarantee you his reputation has been well documented.
Chris Bosh and Shaq also aren't so fond of each other either.
