Shaquille O'Neal has backroom reaction to LeBron James passing him on all-time scoring list

Hall of Famer Shaquille O’Neal was fondly congratulatory of former teammate LeBron James for passing him for seventh in the NBA’s all-time scoring list in tonight’s 99-93 loss to the Chicago Bulls, but his reaction wasn’t as joyful behind closed doors.

The dominant big man-turned TNT analyst was caught by the backstage cameras upon receiving the news that he was no longer the seventh most prolific scorer in league history.

The King is rapidly moving past the legends of yesteryear and making his way into the creme de la creme of NBA bucket-getters.

Tonight’s 26 points, 10 rebounds, and eight assists was just another day at the office for James, but he’ll be hard-pressed to feel any joy in his all-time achievement as the Cleveland Cavaliers have now dropped three straight games.

Regardless, any time a player can make Shaq this mad, it means he’s doing something right — and at 32 years old, there’s plenty of room to reach for higher milestones in the future.
