“Never heard any player say…” Shaquille O’Neal claims LeBron James doesn’t have ‘fear factor’ like Kobe Bryant or Michael Jordan


Shaquille O’Neal backed up Mario Chalmers’ comment that opposing players do not fear LeBron James.

LeBron James is one of the greatest basketball players in the world. However, one point keeps sticking out for the all-time greatest scorer.

According to many, James does not have the fear factor, unlike Michael Jordan or Kobe Bryant during their time. Shaquille O’Neal chimed in to confirm the notion that players do not fear James.

The Big Podcast with Shaq’s guest and former Miami Heat point guard Mario Chalmers was trolled for his comments about nobody fearing LeBron James. And that’s exactly what the former basketball pro gave his opinion on.

However, they did talk about how LeBron James has always projected himself as a nice guy. In comparison, Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant showcased their aggressive sides throughout their careers. Only in the later stages of their careers, or rather, in Jordan’s case, after he retired, did they start to show their softer side to the public.


O’Neal and Chalmers mentioned that the fear factor that Jordan or Bryant had was enough to unsettle opposing players. In comparison, every player knows how good of a basketball player James is. They also know what a good human being he is.
