Phoenix Suns center Jusuf Nurkic recently found himself in the crosshairs of NBA legend Shaquille O'Neal, as the former player publicly criticized Nurkic for allegedly considering a lawsuit against Draymond Green. The controversy began when rumors circulated that Nurkic was planning to sue Green over the recent incident in court.

Despite the subsequent revelation that these claims were false, O'Neal took the opportunity to lash out at Nurkic, leaving a lasting mark on the public discourse. Please note that the Bosnian basketball player has publicly announced that claims that he will sue Green are false.

In an open and direct message, O'Neal expressed skepticism about the lawsuit and questioned Nurkic's toughness, saying, "I don't know if it's true or not, but I want to address Jusuf Nurkic... Nurkif, whatever your name is .

There's talk of filing a lawsuit against Draymond Green. I have a problem with that. It just shows how soft you are. " O'Neal went on to claim that the reason Green confronted Nurkic was because he believed Nurkic would not retaliate physically.

O'Neal's unfiltered commentary emphasized the importance of toughness on the field, criticizing Nurkic for even considering legal action. "You're a slob for even thinking about suing. I'd say this to your face if I saw you. You can't sue someone, you just have to get your big ass up and fight back at someone.

What do you think of that, slob?"

However, Nurkic quickly resolved the situation, denying rumors of a potential lawsuit. He clarified: "First of all, I never said that. People make up all kinds of nonsense.

Shaqilovic, I'm not from here. I'm not going to spend money, and nobody is fighting anymore in this NBA league." O'Neal's blunt remarks underscore the league's traditional emphasis on physicality and the perceived importance of players resolving disputes through physical confrontations rather than legal means.

However, this is a new time and, as Nurkic said, it is no longer usual for every NBA night to be a fight. That was in Shaq's time and we fondly remember those good old days.
