“Charles is a close friend of mine. I would support him in anything. Like Bill Russell, Chuck is among the legends who didn’t make a lot of money when they played themselves. So if a chance comes along at this age that is legitimate – debatable, but legitimate – that option should be considered.

If he accepted the offer, I wouldn’t be mad. If Charles left TNT, I’d stay on his side,” Shaquille said.
