Shaquille O’Neal opens about ending his beef with Alonzo Mourning

Shaquille O’Neal and Alonzo Mourning were two of the best big men in the NBA in 1990’s. There was a beef between the centers before they eventually became teammates.

In 2005 Mourning returned to Miami after a year with the Nets. There he teamed up with Shaq. That is when O’Neal apologized to Mourning and the two went on to win a championship in 2006.

Via Paolo Songco of ClutchPoints:

“I had beef with Alonzo Mourning. And then when he came to the Miami Heat, I had to sit him down and apologize,” Shaq admitted. “I said, ‘You know what Alonzo, I was a hypocrite. I never knew you was this great.’ Alonzo Mourning is a great dude.

“Once he got in that locker room, I was like, ‘Man, this dude is just really, really cool. We should’ve did this a couple years ago.’”
