However, one NBA legend wasn’t happy about the news and didn’t immediately praise Brady for his Hall of Fame career.

Shaquille O’Neal, the former Los Angeles Lakers star, wrote on Brady’s Instagram page after he announced his retirement in a statement on the social media platform.

“No man get your butt up and do one more year,” O’Neal wrote in the comment section.

Brady, however, is leaving as the league’s all-time leader in passing yards (84,520), touchdown passes (624), completions (7,263) and attempts (11,317). He finished second in fourth-quarter comebacks with (42), one behind one of his fiercest rivals Peyton Manning.

Later on, O’Neal finally gave in and commented on the post saying, “love u bro absolute joy to watch.”
