WNBA Player Candace Parker Schools Shaquille O’Neal on the Pick-And-Roll

Shaquille O’Neal has had a great basketball career from his start in high school, throughout college, and then at the pinnacle of the NBA, winning four championships. He is also an astute businessman and entrepreneur and spends some time as a commentator and pitchman in his off time. Yet, none of that mattered when Chicago Sky’s Candace Parker appeared on a panel with him to discuss modern basketball in current times.

According to The Sporting News, Tuesday night on TNT’s Inside the NBA, a panel of Adam Lefkoe, Shaquille O’Neal, Candace Parker, and Dwyane Wade was discussing the way defense is played in today’s NBA. O’Neal was praising Denver Nuggets player Nikola Jokic, after he scored 37 points, dished out 11 assists, and pulled down 10 rebounds in a 128-97 win over the Bucks.

“MVP candidate, dominating, playing like a true big man,” O’Neal says. “He has the ability to step out, and he does that, but that’s not all he does. You saw a fadeaway, went inside with the spin moves, keeping his guys involved. I ain’t got nothing bad to say about big fella, at all.”

After a brief discussion between the panelists speaking about how defense is being played these days, O’Neal questions why teams “switch” on defense so much. Parker breaks it down for him.

That brief exchange prompted some Twitter users to respond:
