Former LSU and NBA star Shaquille O’Neal is not happy that a comment he said was clearly a joke turned into a national story about him getting money during his college playing days.
During the 12th annual Los Angeles Lakers All-Access fundraiser Monday, O’Neal was asked about his years at LSU. Los Angeles Times beat writer Mike Bresnahan quoted O’Neal’s answer: “Yes, they paid very well. Statute of limitations is up. I can talk about it.” Then he added, “Snitches get stitches . . . what can I say?”
