SHAQUILLE O’Neal has a thing for titles.
O’Neal on Tuesday posted a photoshopped image on his Facebook page depicting a younger version of him in an Orlando Magic uniform dunking on center Dwight Howard.
“There can be only 1 Superman !! #ME”, the 43-year old O’Neal wrote on the caption of the photo that has since garnered more than 103,000 "Likes" on his official Facebook page.
The retired four-time NBA champion adopted “Superman” as among his many nicknames during the course of his 19-year career in the pros, even having the “S- Man of Steel” logo tattooed on his left bicep.
The Superman logo also adorns the customized grilles of several of his vehicles, including a Rolls Royce, a Bentley, and a specially-made truck.
The younger Howard has also adopted the Superman persona, wearing a Superman-inspired outfit during the 2008 NBA All-Star Slam Dunk contest.
In 2009, both centers entered into a verbal feud, with O’Neal describing Howard as “The RuPaul of Big Men” in reference to an American drag queen who was popular in the night club scene.
O’Neal also ripped Howard after the free agent center decided to leave the Los Angeles Lakers for the Houston Rockets.
