“I’m so happy that the Knicks didn’t get their first pick,” Shaq said in New York early Wednesday morning.
“I’m here [in NYC] the next day, Knick fans are so pissed and I’m loving it!”
Of course, the Knicks were in the running to get the #1 overall pick in the NBA Draft Lottery on Tuesday — but the ping pong balls didn’t bounce their way … and they wound up with the #3 pick.
The New Orleans Pelicans ended up with the #1 pick — and most people believe they’ll select Zion when the Draft kicks off on June 20.
But, Shaq says it’s not a lock … suggesting the Pelicans could even trade the first pick. He loves the drama!!!
As for the Knicks, Shaq says he thinks NYC will make a strong move for Zion’s former Duke teammate, RJ Barrett … but he also says teams should keep their eye on another possible superstar.
“The guy everyone should be looking at is Bol Bol,” Shaq said … “Bol Bol can play. He’s the real deal.”
