Shaquille O’Neal entered the NBA when Michael Jordan was in his prime and was the biggest basketball icon by far.
The legendary center remembered a game in which MJ dropped 64 points, but it was Shaq and the Magic that got the win.
At one point Jordan drove to the basket attempting to dunk over O’Neal. The rookie fouled the Bulls superstar and then tried to help him up. Mike did not appreciate that.
“Mike taught me a valuable lesson,” the four-time NBA champion recalled. “I go to help him up. He says, ‘Don’t ever help anyone up. Great foul. I don’t need your help. I’m coming back. Don’t you worry.”
