Basketball legend Shaquille O'Neal is condemning any ill will over Tom Brady's $375 million dollar deal with Fox Sports.

On the Thursday episode of his show, The Big Podcast with Shaq, he spoke about Brady's retirement plans.

Co-host Nischelle Turner said, "Fox Sports has announced that Tom Brady has signed a deal that when he decides to retire, he's going to become their lead football analyst. The reported contract is 10 years. $375 million dollars."

"To call the football games!" co-host Spice Adams said in shock.

"Once a week, you can't beat that," O'Neal added.

"Shaquille, are we angry?" asked Turner.

"When it comes to greatness of this kind, if you lend any anger, you're a hater!" O'Neal said definitively.

"Well, he's paving the way," Turner agreed. "That's astronomical!"

"Nah, he's not paving the way. Everybody can't and ain't gonna get this money. Seven Super Bowls. Clean cut. Good looking. Speaks well. He deserves all the money!" O'Neal said. "Whoever says he don't deserve this money, shut your face!"

"Well he's also going to become the face of Fox Sports," Turner added.

"And guess what, I was sitting next to him — it's a gorgeous face," O'Neal said. "Tom, congratulations, baby! I need a loan."

I dont think Shaq knows what the word "deserves" means. 

No one deserves 37 million dollars a year to announce football games.

Americans like their entertainment and will pay for it, our government will help those families earning only $55,000 with subsidies for the Affordable Connectivity Program so they can enjoy it as well.

Many on the left love to complain about what other people make.    Funny though, they rarely seem to make enough.

Tom would be a fool to pass that kind of money up at his age.

I say earn as much as you can!

“…on my National Anthem…”

Therein lies the dilemma, spartan, it is not yours exclusively. 

Kaepernick has a different interpretation of what the anthem means to him. Is your interpretation somehow more meaningful?

Can we agree the true meaning is in allowing disparate voices to be heard? Or are the socks one chooses to wear, ignoring the conversation it meant to bear, simply too far a bridge to cross in myopic symbolism.

I doubt we’ll agree on much on this issue.

Respect should be shown to be given.    Kaepernick clearly only respects what he wants so why would I respect his actions?    I don’t.

I don’t and won’t when he shows disrespect to my NA like that.    Yes, my NA but don’t be disingenuous and infer I said it’s only mine.    It’s many others as well and you’ll find out just how many this November

Why are some only concerned about hurting feelings when it is feelings on the left? How about all the feelings of the people that are offended by this show of disrespect? What about the feelings of all the veterans that have hurt feelings? Why don't their feelings matter?

I guess they're easily offended then.  For grown men you'd think they'd be more mature and not so thin skinned.  

It appears the only people who were offended were those gripped by their usual faux outrage.

Foul, miserable, loathsome? I think

Remember, the left is freaking out over a "what if" situation they drummed up over a leaked draft.  

You would think that with the blind support they give Biden they would follow his lead with abortion:

As a U.S. senator from Delaware, Biden  voted against a 1977 compromise  that allowed Medicaid to fund abortions that included exceptions for victims of rape and incest in addition to concerns for the life of the mother. While the rape and incest exceptions passed in that case, Biden voted in 1981 to again remove them, in what was the most far-reaching ban on federal funds ever enacted by Congress.

All they did was try to rag on me and Tessylo for our comments.
