Shaq has hilarious comment about Kevin Huerter nickname
Atlanta Hawks guard Kevin Huerter has one of the most entertaining nicknames in the NBA, but Shaquille O’Neal is not going to use it.
Huerter helped the Hawks steal Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Bucks in Milwaukee on Wednesday night. As the “Inside the NBA” crew was recapping the game, Ernie Johnson made reference to Huerter’s “Red Velvet” nickname. Shaq said he is not going to call another grown man by that name.

Shaq and the TNT crew are no strangers to nicknames. Charles Barkley even came up with a funny nickname for Shaq earlier this year, but apparently the four-time NBA champion feels “Red Velvet” crosses the line.
