San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is causing a lot of controversy in the United States following his decision to sit and then kneel during the national anthem in pre-season.
With such a big issue - Kaepernick says he is peacefully protesting the attitude towards African-Americans in the country - the conversation has reached all corners of the sporting world, including the NBA.
His critics have insisted the QB is insulting military personnel but his supporters - including Stephen Curry - say he is exercising his constitutional right to free speech.
Everybody has their opinion on this issue and four-time champion and soon-to-be Hall of Fame member Shaquille O'Neal is no different.
The former Lakers star appeared on Fox News Channel's Fox and Friends on Wednesday and insisted the stance taken by Kap is not one he would endorse due to his family's links to law enforcement and the military.
"I mean to each his own, something I wouldn't do" he said. "I don't really have a say on it but I would never do that. My father was a military man and he protected this country - uncles are in law enforcement, they go out and work hard every day. Just, you know, there are other ways to get your point across.''
