Shaquille O'Neal's Hall of Fame speech (video), plus Shaq says he was a hypocrite to Celtics fans

Shaquille O'Neal, who retired from the NBA as a member of the Boston Celtics in 2011, was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame this weekend:

From Jay King of Mass Live:

"I was a hypocrite when it came to Boston fans," said the big man, who spent his best seasons with the rival Los Angeles Lakers. "Before I got there, I really didn't like you guys. But when I got there you guys welcomed your arms. One thing about Boston, you guys appreciate hard work. Even if I wasn't the Shaq-Shaqity Shaq, I (gave what I could) and I think they appreciated it."
