Lakers GM Kupchak weighs in on Shaq as a Kings owner

JV_092313_SHAQ 171.JPGLakers general manager Mitch Kuphcak met with the Los Angeles media today and was asked about Lakers legend Shaquille O'Neal becoming a minority owner of the Kings.

Thanks to my buddy, Ben Bolch at the L.A. Times, for passing this along to me.


"I think it's great. Obviously, it's a little bit surprising, Sacramento and Shaquille. But the ownership there, they've got a new ownership with a lot of energy and excitement and they've made some changes, a new general manager (Pete D'Alessandro and) Chris Mullin getting involved. Shaquille and the new arena, just a passionate fight for years that went on for years to keep the organization in Sacramento and then yesterday bringing Shaquille on as an investor. So I think it's all good. I think it's great. I'm glad I'm not DeMarcus Cousins, though, I'll tell you that."


"I'm not sure how that's going to work out, but if Shaq told me to do something I would do it and I wouldn't argue."
