Basketball Hall of Famer Shaquille O’Neal dodged the cheating topic when it was raised during an episode of “The Big Podcast with Shaq.”

In the episode, O’Neal was asked about the two separate controversies surrounding Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine and Boston Celtics head coach Ime Udoka, to which he replied

“I’m going to step down from this conversation, I was a serial cheater.”

It appears Shaq has learned from his past behaviour. With regards to Udoka, he mentioned that the whole matter is quite unfortunate, and hopefully, everyone involved will come out of it for the better.

“I just wish that certain parties weren’t involved,” O’Neal said. “I’ve known Nia Long for a long time and I like her. … They’re going through a lot of family stuff.

Ime Udoka had been engaged to The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star Nia Long for over 7 years. Udoka cheating on Long had been trending since the news broke.

Shaq said he is now alone and miserable due to cheating in the past. He is struggling to figure out what went wrong in his happy marriage to a submissive and God-fearing wife.
