Shaquille O'Neal reminds Dwight Howard he's the real Superman

Shaq is at it again.

The Diesel took aim (again) at one of his favorite targets, Dwight Howard, in a Facebook post reminding the Rockets center who the real Superman is.

There can only be 1 Superman !!! #ME

Now maybe this is just another one of Shaq's motivational techniques to inspire Howard, whose Rockets are clinging to the eighth seed in the West less than a year after reaching the conference finals.

Or maybe he's still a bit peeved at Howard for appropriating his Superman sobriquet and pretty much casting himself as the lead in the failed sequel "Shaq does the NBA": No. 1 overall pick by the Magic, loses in the Finals, bolts for Hollywood -- rinse and repeat.

Or maybe he's just hyped, much like the rest of us, for the release of "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice."

Who knows?

What we do know is the numbers don't lie, and they back up O'Neal's claims as the NBA's Man of Steel.

Career stats:

O'Neal: 23.7 points, 10.9 rebounds, 2.3 blocks per game

Howard: 14.6 points, 12.0 rebounds, 1.5 blocks per game

Factor in Shaq's four rings to Howard's one Finals appearance and his 100 player efficiency rating in photoshopping taunts and there's no comparison.

Game, set, match. Shaq. (At least until he randomly brings it up again.)
