Shaquille O'Neal isn't interested in playing for a superteam.

The NBA Hall of Famer addressed the topic after being asked if he'd rather play for today's Los Angeles Lakers or Clippers during an appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" on Tuesday night.

"Not one of those teams," he replied. "I'm from the era where guys wanted to compete and beat each other, so I would wait and see who's teaming up and doing that and I would go on a team that needs a superstar, and I'd teach them guys how to beat the superteams."

Kimmel also asked O'Neil if he thinks the Lakers or Clippers will be better next season.

"Listen, I gotta go with the Lakers," he said. "However, L.A. has always been a very exciting city, but next year basketball in the city is going to be very exciting. Very, very exciting. But, I'm Lakers. Purple and gold 'til I die."

Caesars Palace currently has the Lakers listed as the favorites to win the 2019-20 NBA title at 3-1 odds, followed by the Clippers at 4-1 odds.
