NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal is currently visiting Australia. Naturally, there he was asked about one of the country’s most talented players Ben Simmons.

Shaq, who has been critical of the Nets point guard in the past on multiple occasions, wished him well, saying that he has a lot of potential.

“He has a lot of potential,” the four-time NBA champion said, per Damien Haffenden of Sunrise. “He’s had a lot of personal problems, Ben doesn’t talk a lot, so nobody really knows what’s going on with him, but I wish him well, and I wish he could fight through what he’s going through and get to that next level.”
