Former NBA star Shaquille O’Neal appeared on The Big Podcast, where the hot topic was Tom Brady‘s current form. Shaq then spoke in support of the NFL star as he could relate to his situation. He said,

“I wish him well, and hopefully they can reconcile and get back together. It’s nothing to do with his age because he’s always been a vegan, he always ate clean, and always did the right things. He’s not a partier, he’s not a drinker, but emotionally, I know he’s going through a lot So, I’ll go on record and say that’s the reason why he’s not looking like Tom Brady right now.”
