Lil Wayne snubbed Shaquille O’Neal on his Lakers Mount Rushmore

The Los Angeles Lakers have had so many superstars and transcendent players over the decades that at least one has to be left off certain lists of the greatest to play for the franchise.

Magic Johnson, Kobe Bryant and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar are certainly on just about everyone’s Mount Rushmore of Purple and Gold greats. But the question is, who deserves that fourth spot?

Is it Shaquille O’Neal, who gave the franchise eight of his best seasons, not to mention three straight NBA championships? Or is it LeBron James, who is now in his sixth year with the team and may be able to add a second ring to his Lakers resume?

Rapper Lil Wayne momentarily put O’Neal on his Lakers Mount Rushmore, only to change his mind and include James instead.

Obviously, as one could imagine, O’Neal wasn’t happy, but it was merely a matter of Lil Wayne’s opinion and not necessarily objective fact.
