Shaquille O’Neal Admits He’s Jealous Of Rudy Gobert’s $205M Contract


This past offseason, Rudy Gobert signed the third-most valuable contract in NBA history, a 5 year extension with the Utah Jazz worth $205 million.

Gobert’s contract then led to some intense shit-posting by Shaquille O’Neal about how he’d dominate Rudy Gobert, including various funny photoshopped pictures. In the following weeks, Shaq expressed his frustrations with the Frenchman over and over again, extending from social media to podcasts and TV, even though Gobert did nothing to provoke Shaq’s personal attacks.

Now, months later, during an appearance on “The Rex Chapman Show”, O’Neal admitted to being jealous of Gobert and the lucrative contracts in today’s NBA.


“I’m jealous, but I’m happy,” O’Neal said around the 25:50 mark. “I’m jealous because I always thought that you had to have Michael-Jordan, superb-type numbers to get that type of money. That’s what it was in my era, but I’m happy for the kids. Reason why I bring up Rudy Gobert, people think I’m hating, it’s not. He’s a good big man; I’m used to dealing with great big men, right?”
