Chris Bosh shrugs off criticism from Shaquille O’Neal


In his new book, Shaquille O’Neal smacks around Chris Bosh a little. Which is nothing new, Shaq called Bosh the “RuPaul of NBA big men” before, so this was almost tame in comparison.

But when asked about it, Bosh basically shrugged it off.

Our own Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel asked Bosh about the criticism.

“I know the thing is entertainment,” Bosh told the Sun Sentinel. “How are you going to get people to buy your book?

“So I don’t care about stuff that is said in the media or in books or pointed or directed toward somebody, because it’s really just a tactic and nothing else. He’s an author. He can write whatever he wants. If he sells a bunch, then congrats to him.”

Give Bosh a gold star. He’s been right twice today.

Bosh knew he was stepping into the brightest of spotlights when he agreed to go to the Heat with Dwyane Wade and LeBron James last year. He’s well paid, living in a place he likes and playing on a contending team. Living well is the best revenge. So let Shaq talk all he wants.
