Shaq

  1. Shaq wants to be the “Pat Riley of comedy.” No, I don’t know what that means either.

    Dec 7, 2012, 2:56 PM EDT

    2nd Annual Cartoon Network Hall Of Game Awards - Arrivals

    When he’s not dragging down TNT’s Inside the NBA, Shaquille O’Neal has a lot of other things going on. A bunch of businesses. A brand to promote. And a comedy tour. Shaq’s “All Star Comedy Jam” where he’s trying to get some young comedians exposure. And when talking to the Associated Press about it, he…

  2. Report: Shaq could play couple games in Mexican league

    Sep 5, 2012, 6:02 PM EDT

    Former US basketball star Shaquille O'Ne

    Shaquille O’Neal does not look like a guy in shape to get back on the basketball court. Frankly, he didn’t look like that his last couple of years he was still in the NBA (when the injuries mounted up). But he may be back on the court for a couple games in the Mexican Basketball…

  3. Shaq not exactly impressed with the Orlando coaching search

    Jul 23, 2012, 2:56 PM EDT

    Former US basketball star Shaquille O'Ne

    I don’t envy Rob Hennigan. Here’s your dream job, you are the new general manager of the Orlando Magic. Now all you have to do is trade our superstar center and try to get some reasonable level of value back, hire a new head coach, start a massive rebuilding project and chart a totally new…

  4. Kobe says even 2004 title could not have kept Shaq/Kobe Lakers together

    Jul 16, 2012, 5:59 PM EDT

    Lakers v Nets

    It was the conventional wisdom at the time that if the Lakers had won the 2004 NBA title — they lost in the finals to the Detroit Pistons and their stifling defense — that Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O’Neal would have stuck it out together to chase more titles. The “winning cures all ills” theory.…

  5. Shaq to co-star in sequel to Adam Sandler’s “Grown Ups”

    Apr 11, 2012, 5:19 PM EDT

    2nd Annual Cartoon Network Hall Of Game Awards - Arrivals

    I’m not sure which is a stranger idea — that there will be a “Grown Ups 2” or that Shaquille O’Neal will star in it. But both of those things are happening, according to the Boston Globe (via IamaGM.com). Retired NBA star Shaquille O’Neal will costar in the sequel to Adam Sandler’s comedy, “Grown Ups,’’…

  6. Pat Riley laughs off Shaq’s “Gestapo” comment

    Nov 21, 2011, 6:59 PM EDT

    shaq-riley

    Pat Riley understands Shaquille O’Neal. Understood he needed to push the big man hard if the Heat were going to win the championship in 2006. Understands him now as Shaq goes around promoting his “Shaq Uncut” biography. That’s why Riley was not offended by Shaq saying talking about Riley’s “Gestapo conditioning,” as the coach told Ira…

  7. Shaq turned away from NYC club because he dressed down

    Nov 17, 2011, 11:25 AM EDT

    Basketball star Shaquille O'Neal of the

    Shaquille O’Neal may be an NBA legend, a television personality, social media star and now published author, it doesn’t matter. For some New York clubs you don’t dress up, you don’t get in. Period. Here is the report from TMZ — who else did you think would have this story? (Hat tip to Eye on…

  8. Shaq compares LeBron, Wade in clutch; smacks Bosh

    Nov 15, 2011, 12:33 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Miami Heat

    It’s Tuesday, time for another installment of “Shaquille O’Neal smacks someone is his book.” Chris Bosh, come on down, you’re the next contestant. Here is what Shaq wrote about the third wheel of the Miami Heat, as reported by Ethan Skolnick in the Palm Beach Post (via I am a GM). “Some guys come into the…

  9. Author: Shaquille O’Neal’s father abused him as a child

    Nov 10, 2011, 6:45 PM EDT

    Former US basketball star Shaquille O'Ne

    Through all the entertaining anecdotes in the new Shaquille O’Neal book about his clashes with Kobe Bryant (and Pat Riley and LeBron James and Big Baby and…) there is another, darker episode. There is Shaq’s upbringing, and how his father physically and mentally abused him. Like punching him in the face out of the blue…

  10. Kareem says Shaq didn’t get help because he didn’t ask

    Nov 10, 2011, 12:07 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers

    Among the seemingly countless interesting bits coming out of Shaquille O’Neal’s new book — hitting stores next week, if you still buy your books in stores — were some swipes at Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Shaq said that Kareem offered him no help through his NBA career. Which seems believable because Kareem is a bit standoffish. But…

  11. Another day, more Shaq stories: Today, Big Baby gets smacked

    shaq-return-april-1

    Every day more excerpts from Shaquille O’Neal’s new book come out, and every day we move a little closer to buying the book when it comes out. We’ve heard stories from Shaq’s Lakers era, Cavaliers era and Heat era, on tap today is Boston. The Boston Globe has excerpts from the book about Shaq’s time…

  12. Shaq says he told Celtics not to trade Perkins (and talks Kobe)

    Sep 12, 2011, 8:09 AM EDT

    Former US basketball star Shaquille O'Ne

    Shaquille O’Neal feels like a lot of Celtics fans do — that the Celtics shouldn’t have traded Kendrick Perkins to Oklahoma City at the deadline last season. But Shaq went a step farther telling GM Danny Ainge he might not be back and not to make the trade. That’s just one of the interesting things…

  13. Shaq in bronze — he gets statue at alma mater LSU

    Sep 9, 2011, 10:59 AM EDT

    shaq-lsu

    If you want to remember the young, almost skinny Shaquille O’Neal, you need to head on down to Baton Rouge, Louisiana. (Sure, you could also go to YouTube, but Baton Rouge is a lot more fun.) On the LSU campus Thursday they unveiled a new statue of Shaq — dunking of course — from his…

  14. Garnett: Shaq hit a home run over the Green Monster at Fenway

    Sep 2, 2011, 8:50 AM EDT

    shaq-return-april-1

    Dan Patrick got Kevin Garnett to open up about negotiations with the Celtics (or lack thereof) and about almost going to the Lakers in 2007. But there was one more little tidbit we left out. Garnett talked about playing with Shaquille O’Neal, which KG said made last season one of the most fun he has…

  15. Dwight Howard has hired free throw shooting guru

    Aug 26, 2011, 10:18 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Phoenix Suns

    There are moments — crucial end-of-close-game moments — when Stan Van Gundy has to sit his best player, Dwight Howard. Or they can’t trust giving him the ball. Because Howard will get fouled, and he shot only 59.6 percent from the free throw line last year (which is pretty much right at his career average…

  16. Infamous booster Nevin Shapiro allegedly hung out with Dwyane Wade, Shaq, along with rest of Miami

    Aug 21, 2011, 4:00 PM EDT

    Miami Heat basketball player Dwyane Wade attends a fashion show of the Yves Saint Laurent collection as part of spring-summer 2012 men's fashion season presented in Paris on Friday, June 24, 2011

    It was only really a matter of time, honestly. Nevin Shapiro is the infamous convict who ran a Ponzi scheme and recently provided enough detailed evidence of widespread corruption and NCAA violation at the University of Miami to tarnish their reputation for a decade. The U is a nuclear wasteland right now as the NCAA…

  17. The one where Betty White slaps Shaq

    Aug 18, 2011, 7:31 PM EDT

    Image (1) Shaq_sitting-thumb-250x329-17781.jpg for post 3570

    This pretty much sounds like a rejected sitcom setup: Betty White — she of the “Mary Tyler Moore Show” and then “The Golden Girls” and then the late-in-life pop culture resurgence — was hanging out with Shaquille O’Neal, and he proposed marriage to her. But it kind of happened. It was staged, but it happened.…

  18. Even Obama thinks Rondo needs to get a jumper

    Aug 17, 2011, 12:47 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Denver Nuggets

    One game this March, Rajon Rondo’s jumper was just off. What game? Take your pick. But this time it was President Barack Obama’s fault. At least that’s how Shaquille O’Neal remembers it. Shaq, who was with the Celtics in spirit last year if not on the court, has a new book coming out written with…

  19. But what Shaq really wants to do is direct

    Aug 16, 2011, 10:52 AM EDT

    Basketball star Shaquille O'Neal of the

    Once the owners and players get around to having an NBA season, Shaquille O’Neal will have a day job. Well, really a night job, but he’ll be part of the TNT crew on Inside the NBA. But he’s coming up with a fallback position. The man who helped bring us “Kazaam” now is studying to…

  20. Shaq names the five NBA players he’d most want to fight

    Aug 11, 2011, 10:00 PM EDT

    Image (1) Shaq_fist-thumb-250x374-20454.jpg for post 4198

    Shaquille O’Neal, out of the NBA and into the studio, remains one of the most interesting personalities in the sport. Because he’s up for anything. Such as going on Inside MMA television and naming the five NBA players he’d most want to fight. Some interesting answers, and frankly I’d pay to see a Shaq vs.…

  21. Judge throws out wild kidnapping case tied to Shaq

    Aug 10, 2011, 10:00 AM EDT

    Shaquille O'Neal laughs as he announces his retirement from NBA at a news conference in Windermere

    When we told you about a wild kidnapping and beating case in Los Angeles that involved gang members, orders from Shaquille O’Neal, and an alleged sex tape involving the former NBA center,  we had doubts. Shaq denied everything and was never charged. We took that story with enough salt to make a nice prosciutto. The judge…

  22. Shaq seems to just attract wild lawsuit allegations

    Aug 4, 2011, 7:58 PM EDT

    Shaquille O'Neal

    Shaquille O’Neal has run in some questionable circles. Not that I believe any of the lawsuit allegations made against him this summer — and there have been some so ridiculous we refused to run or link to them here — but the fact he keeps ending up in them says something about the people around…

  23. Video: Shaq drives tiny cars on Conan

    Aug 3, 2011, 11:41 AM EDT

    Basketball star Shaquille O'Neal of the

    Retired or not, Shaquille O’Neal is one of the biggest personalities and stars the NBA has. And Shaq gives good television. I’ much rather watch him than David Stern talking lawsuits. Shaq tells good stories, like trying to just drop in at the White House unannounced and saying he wants to see President Obama (even if…

  24. Shaq says LeBron’s travails “happened to everyone”

    Jul 15, 2011, 8:08 AM EDT

    Shaquille O'Neal

    Shaquille O’Neal has been through the wars. He’s won a lot of rings, he’s lost in finals, he’s been loved and scorned by the media. Oh, and he had his own reality show. Think what you want of him, he understands a lot of what it takes to get things done in the NBA. In…

  25. TNT makes it official, Shaq will join “Inside the NBA”

    Jul 14, 2011, 11:14 AM EDT

    Shaquille O'Neal laughs as he announces his retirement from NBA at a news conference in Windermere

    Shaquille O’Neal and Charles Barkley at the same desk every Thursday night. First, that is appointment television. Second, TNT may want to increase its craft services budget (the people who cater food to the set). TNT made it official Thursday, announcing that Shaquille O’Neal will join the “Inside the NBA” show before and after games…
