Former NBA player and All-Star Shaquille O’Neal won three consecutive titles with the Los Angeles Lakers in 2000-2002 seasons and has no doubt that his Lakers squads could easily beat the two-time reigning champions Golden State Warriors.

Shaquille O’Neal made a comparison between the Lakers and the Warriors in an interwiev with USA Today. Here is what the Hall of Famer said: “I think we’d easily win. Other people might feel different, they [the Warriors] might feel different. But we had one of the best teams of all time in 2001 when we went 15-1 in the playoffs. We would’ve gone 16-0 but A.I. [Allen Iverson] went off on us.”
