LSU's Victory Over Iowa Was Watched By A Record 9.9 Million in History-Making NCAA Women’s Basketball Final

Shaquille O’Neal Says Angel Reese ‘Probably the Greatest Athlete Ever to Come out of LSU Sports’

Louisiana State University is still basking in the latest NCAA Woman’s Basketball Championship. One of the most famous, if not, THE most famous and most accomplished students to ever attend LSU is retired NBA player, Shaquille O’Neal. He gave current student-athlete player, Angel Reese the highest compliment when he stated that she is “probably the greatest athlete ever to come out of LSU sports.”

On the latest episode of The Big Podcast, Shaq stated that Reese may be the greatest athlete to come out of LSU because she was able to bring the university a championship. He also pointed out that, although he did extremely well while attending the school, he was never able to bring home the championship.

“She’s probably the greatest athlete ever to come out of LSU sports. You heard it here first,” he exclaimed on the show. “Male and female. Ever.”

His reasoning was based on her delivering the “package” which is something most students who attended LSU can say, including himself.

“See, a lot of us got the package and we still got the package in our truck. She delivered that package,” O’Neal said. “It’s a lot of names to throw around, men and women, but she is probably the greatest athlete. Some people are going to exclude it to ‘woman athletes.’ I’m not doing that. She is the greatest athlete to ever come out of LSU because she got it done.”

And although Cincinnati Bengals quarterback, Joe Burrow won a national college football championship (in 2019) AND the Heisman Trophy (Awarded to the best collegiate football player) while attending the school, Shaq doubled down with his thoughts regarding Reese.

“Joe Burrow got it done a couple of years ago, but she is way more athletic than he is,” O’Neal stated.

In a recent interview on ESPN’s SportsCenter, Reese confirmed that she will be joining her teammates when the basketball team visits The White House.
