‘Remember kids, I’d rather kill myself than..’: Shaquille O’Neal’s ‘Don’t Do Drugs’ plea brought back to live TV to drive Aaron Rodgers’ ‘psychedelic’ revelation

Shaquille O’Neal ruled the NBA world for several years. He used his brute strength to bulldoze opponents inside the painted area and put on a show for his supporters every night. After his retirement, the great man tried his hand at various disciplines, with great success in each.

Shaq is one of the most inspirational people in sport and has always been anti-drugs. When Shaq was a baby, his biological father struggled with addiction and was imprisoned for drug possession. However, the great man never allowed this to affect or lead him astray. This is what propelled him to become the success story he is today.

However, recently another sports legend opened up about his “psychedelic” experience. NFL great Aaron Rodgers has revealed the secret to his NFL dominance. The quarterback said a psychedelic getaway to South America improved his mental health and helped him have the best season of his career.

He remarked that coming back from South America and winning his next two MVP awards in 2020 and 2021 was not just a “coincidence”.

Trevor Noah broached the subject on his To display. He said, “Do you realize how important this is, people? Aaron Rodgers just said, “Yo, I did drugs and that’s part of the reason I crashed the game.” It shows you how times have changed.

He then brought back Shaq’s anti-drug appeal from the 90s. He continued, “Because you remember in the 90s, they bring someone like Shaq on TV to say, ‘Remember kids, I’d rather kill myself than get high on marijuana. Don’t do drugs! »

Shaquille O’Neal said he would have committed suicide before taking drugs. Well, his dad would have too if he found Shaq while consuming.
