Shaquille O’Neal backs LSU star Angel Reese’s ‘You cant see me’ taunt at Caitlin Clark in women’s NCAA championship final win vs Iowa

The Los Angeles Lakers star Shaquille O’Neal never backed down from supporting anyone who he deemed worthy, and this time the LSU Tigers’ Angel Reese is getting it when the world is against her.

The Tigers clinched a comfortable victory over the Iowa Hawkeyes in the NCAA women’s basketball championship last night. The Hawkeyes star Caitlin Clark pulled off an individual brilliant performance, but in the end, she got beat by the Tigers’ Angel.

After the game, the MOP made the iconic hand gesture, ‘you can’t see me,’ in the face of Caitlin and stirred huge negativity. although, some of the fans found it positively rebellious and praised it.

Shaquille is one of the notable fans of the antics this time and a fan of LSU; he supported the champion unconditionally.

What did Shaquille O’Neal do?

The 51-year-old Lakers legend found it powerfully attractive, and as a dominant person himself, he can’t let it go unappreciated. He shared a couple of examples of the moment on his Instagram story.

Though it displayed some disrespect and the 20-year-old’s lack of professionalism, the aggressive attitude is what deserves praise here. The big Shaq is also focused on the dominance demonstration by the young athlete as a fan.

Reese scored 15 points with 10 rebounds and five assists, while Clark scored the most at 30 points with two rebounds and eight assists last night. Clearly, the latter showed overall dominance in the game, but it was the champion’s moment to own the night.

However, the Hawkeyes’ point guard seemed unmoved by the taunt, and later she said, “Honestly, I have no idea. I was just trying to get to the handshake line, shake hands, and be grateful that my team was in that position.”

What’s your take on that moment? Does Angel deserve support from Shaquille O’Neal for this type of behavior? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
