Shaq Uncut: Up Next Nate Robinson And Glen ‘Big Baby’ Davis

In your latest advance look at Shaquille O’Neal’s book, Shaq Uncut, we get to take a peek into Shaq’s life with the Celtics last year.

I wasn’t surprised at all when he got traded. Nate was always trying to get noticed by the public. He was always tweeting videos of himself punking his teammates … Some people are a little too focused on Twitter and Nate was one of them. He was too worried about how many followers he had. He kept saying, “Shaq, I need more people. Help me out.”

On the West Coast swing in January, Shaq wanted to get off against the Lakers, but he said even though he was getting good position under the basket, Glen Davis wouldn’t pass him the ball.

“Big Baby” Davis kept looking me off and taking it himself. Doc is shouting at him to go inside, but he won’t. So Doc calls timeout and draws up a play for me. I go out there, and I back Andrew Bynum way under the rim. I’m loose, I’m ready. I’ve got Bynum under the basket and again, Baby won’t give me the ball. So I go up to him and say, “If you ever miss me again I’m going to punch you in the face.” I was hot.

Shaq seemed to be an active participant in the foolishness that Nate provided. Shaq was pretty much a wrap by the time he arrived in Boston but the team seemed to have great chemistry at the start of the season. If I remember correctly, that trade had more to do with what Boston thought they could offer to retain the services Kendrick Perkins. Ultimately the move proved to be a chemistry killer… well maybe not killer but seriously injured both teams.

Remember these:

That seemed like Big fun to me! :shrug: But if it was all sunshine and cupcakes, who would want to read his book, right?
