On this week’s The Big Podcast with Shaquille O’Neal, Nischelle Turner and Spice Adams, Metta Sandiford-Artest made an appearance. Turner asked the Lakers legends Shaquille and Metta about what they felt of Kanter’s name change. To this Shaq quickly lost his cool and said that despite his beef with LeBron James, he could not handle the disrespect of Michael Jordan by Enes Kanter.

However, he did state, “I don’t know his name, I’m not memorizing his name and I don’t give a sh*t what he changed his name to.” And just as Shaquille O’Neal strongly took a stand on the side of Michael Jordan; only a few NBA fans are on Enes Kanter’s side in the whole disagreement. Nevertheless, the main takeaway for Kanter from this is that one simply does not disrespect Michael Jordan.
