On Friday, Shaquille O'Neal gave a speech to commemorate his Basketball Hall of Fame nomination, which he headlines alongside Allen Iverson. He was honored to be nominated, but he also spent time roasting a couple people because Shaq still has some grievances:

Shaq on Rick Barry:
"He came to LSU one time and wanted me to shoot free throws underhanded. 'Nah, Rick, I can't do it. I'd rather shoot zero percent. Can't do it. Too cool for that.'"
Shaq on Dick Bavetta:
"And Dick Bavetta, I don't like you either. You gave me ten technicals and you threw me out the game twice. Twice!"
Shaq on Yao Ming:
"You know, Yao Ming used to travel all the time when he shoot the fadeaway. They never called it."
Never change, Shaq.
