Shaquille O’Neal and David Robinson are two of the top NBA centers of all time. During their battles on the court a beef developed between the two players. It turns out that the beef was made up as O’Neal reveals.

According to him, Robinson was a nice person which made it difficult for the Lakers great to be mad at him. So he used his mind to make some reason to be mad which is how the beef started.

“It was all made up,” Shaq said on Scoop B Radio, per Brandon “Scoop B” Robinson. “When I came down to San Antonio and the fans start booing me – ‘Oh you’re booing me in my hometown?’ And then it was like a hatred thing for David & the Spurs.”

“David was just so nice and respectful. He’s just a nice guy,” the four-time NBA champion said. “I’m not a bully. You have to piss me off for me to get mad. I had to make something up just to make me mad.”
