Shaquille O'Neal thinks that Joel Embiid has the ability to surpass him, and hopes his strong MVP level start holds strong through the season - even if John doesn't think the media should evoke Shaq's name in comparison until Embiid does more in the post-season. We also get Shaq's take on the Kevin Durant comments about the media surround LeBron James being "toxic" and Shaq thinks that's the wrong word - that these guys should embrace and respect the spotlight. Shaq also thinks that Luca Doncic and Trae Young are pretty close in talent, despite Doncic's strong start in Dallas as Trae Young struggles in Atlanta. We also do a round of "You Idiot" with some hilarious stories, of course we get Borderline, and we play the Shaqcast Pyramid... with yet another mess of a contestant for Kincade.
