Shaquille O'Neal Defends LeBron James by Showing How Many Uniforms He Wore

Kyle Newport@@KyleNewportFeatured ColumnistJuly 12, 2014

Some people may say that LeBron James switching uniforms may hurt his legacy, but Shaquille O'Neal thinks that idea is laughable.

James has played for only two teams—the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Miami Heat—in his 11-year career. He left Cleveland for Miami in 2010 to give himself a better chance of winning a championship. After winning two titles in South Beach, James is hoping to bring one to Ohio.

The Big Diesel, on the other hand, played for six different teams and won four championships in his 19-year career. Of course, O'Neal and James were teammates in Cleveland in the 2009-10 season.

O'Neal is there to defend his former teammate now that some people are attacking James for switching teams. Although O'Neal changed teams numerous times, nobody questions his legacy as one of the best centers to ever play in the NBA

Great point, Shaq.
