Great story here from former Phoenix Suns head coach Alvin Gentry (via Henry Abbott of ESPN.com) of what it was like dealing with the antics of Shaquille O’Neal.
Shaq played for the Suns for a season and a half in 2008 and 2009, and was notorious for his love of pranks — to the point that even the team’s head coach had little chance of slowing him down.
Check out the video clip above, where Gentry tells the tale of a naked O’Neal forcing others to wrestle with him on a fairly regular basis — an unfortunate honor that even Gentry himself was unable to escape.
