Shaquille O'Neal: LeBron James Shouldn't Chase Championships

While his family will be a major factor for what he does on a personal level, James wants his primary motivating factor on a professional level to be the pursuit of more rings.

"Last summer they could have acquired Paul George and I think Paul George wanted to know, well, if LeBron commits to some years going forward, then 'I might be willing to commit.' And when LeBron wasn't willing to commit to an extension that told me they could have had Paul George and they could have done that without losing Kyrie".

"My problem toward the end of my career was I was trying to shut everybody up and I was greedy [for more championships]", O'Neal said in an interview with ESPN at a pre-draft event on Friday evening for teens from the Y in Brooklyn. So I was trying to make quick stops to get it. After that, he spent a year apiece with the Phoenix Suns, the Cleveland Cavaliers (alongside Lebron), and the Boston Celtics.

Seven injured as taxi runs into crowd in Moscow
The driver, who tried to flee the scene, was caught by police, local media has claimed, citing emergency services sources. An ambulance is parked near a damaged taxi, which ran into crowds of people in central Moscow , Russia June 16, 2018.

Former Los Angeles Lakers center Shaquille O'Neal speaks during a National Basketball Association game between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Minnesota Timberwolves at the Staples Center. But it sure sounds as if the Cavaliers could have already created that team but LeBron prevented it from happening.

Shaq added that no matter where LeBron goes, even if he stays in Cleveland, he's going to find it hard to win another title because of the roster which the Warriors have built. You can add index pages toward the end, but your book is already set.

"He done already passed up legends; he done already made his mark - he has three rings", O'Neal continued. His mentality now is probably is: I want to get four before Steph [Curry] does. "Every one of my All-Stars I've been teamed with LeBron". That's probably his mentality now.

Almost 2,000 children separated from adults at border
Both the conservative and compromise bills would provide money for Trump's long-sought border wall with Mexico. She called the Trump administration's separation policy " barbaric ", adding: "It has to stop".

James moved to 3-6 in the NBA Finals after being swept by the Golden State Warriors earlier this month. But, to their credit, they've developed intriguing franchise pillars, with max cap space and a few tradable assets, at a time when just about nobody else can say the same. Cleveland can offer him $205 million over five years, while other teams can offer him $152 million over four years.

That means taking the best prospect at No. 8 or trading the pick for someone who can help LeBron win now.
