Yesterday, we noted that Shaquille O’Neal was back home in Louisiana and in attendance at the LSU/Auburn college football game on Saturday night.
During his trip, John Reid of NOLA.com got a chance to catch up with “The Big Aristotle” and asked him about his thoughts about the NBA team in New Orleans now being called the Pelicans:
“It’s a terrible name. I told Charles on TNT, I don’t think I’ve seen a Pelican before. Pelicans, are they that big white bird? I would had named them Tigers, Crawfish or something. Pelicans — no. But I wish them well.”
The most shocking part about this story, Shaq never seeing a Pelican before…
