NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal was one of the most dominant players in the league’s history. The 330-pound center used to abuse his opponents in the paint.

The four-time NBA champion, along with some other prominent names from his era, consider today’s league to soft due to rule changes that protect the attacking players.

According to Shaq, he would love to play in the league today as he would dominate the players with his physicality.

“I wish I was playing with these buttercups right now,” O’Neal said on The Big Podcast, per Jason Simpson of Lakers Daily. “I wish I was. I promise you I wish I was playing. It’ll be a slaughterhouse out there.”
