Apparently unwilling to let Rick Fox have League of Legends all to himself, Shaquille O’Neal and the Yankees’ A-Rod just announced that they are getting into the esports business by investing in the squarely middle-of-the-road LoL and Counter-Strike organization NRG.
You can’t swing a dead cat in Brooklyn without hitting an Arsenal-scarf-wearing, artisanal-coffee-in-a-mason-jar-sipping soccer fan, and you don’t even have to look too far these days to find Swansea City, Sunderland, and Fulham fans in the U.S.
To be fair to Shaq, I can’t really compose a coherent thought after 8:00 p.m., either.
For no particular reason, let’s take a moment to gawk at some of Shaquille O’Neal’s best highlights.
Shaquille O’Neal is disowning content posted on his personal blog and verified Facebook pages yesterday, claiming the company he contracted to pretend to be him online went rogue and that he is not and has never been a “9/11 truther.”
TNT host Shaquille O’Neal regularly delights audiences with his “Shaqtin’ A Fool” segment, but the Inside the NBA personality is probably due for a taste of his own medicine after revealing to the world this evening that he is a 9/11 truther.
Shaq has a habit of engaging in slapstick humor on Inside the NBA, so we can’t be sure that this isn’t a gag, but Shaq losing his shoe while falling on his face is pretty funny nonetheless. After four straight hours of watching playoff basketball, it’s nice to have a bit of levity.
There once was a time when TNT's Inside the NBA could be counted on to be the only sports studio show worth watching on a regular basis, but things have been trending downhill lately. Case in point: Last night's brain-dead discussion about basketball analytics, during which the collective ass-showing by those involved…
I somehow missed this Thursday night, but it's too funny to let pass by. That's Dennis Scott's son, Dennis III, socking Shaq in the face on the set of Inside the NBA. Scott and Shaq played together in Orlando for four seasons and I assume are friendly, but Dennis III hit Shaq a little bit harder than "jokingly,"…
There's no semblance of a barrier between professional athletes and rappers today, but that wasn't the case in 1994. Long before Ron Artest put out his own mixtape or Damian Lillard dominated #FourBarFridays, the NBA's biggest stars were only just beginning to tiptoe into the studio, with oft-disastrous but…
Listen, love is love, clap the gat at y'all haters
The CEO of your label is a basketball player
That mean your shit is never coming out
Sean Price, I'm forever dumbing out, pyrex
—Sean Price, "Pyrex"
This is Shaq attempting some Cirque du Soleil-type maneuvers with another fully-grown adult during TNT's halftime coverage of Spurs-Blazers. It looks similar to when a dad might play the airplane game with his child. Except, again, we have two adults here.
He was talking about Dick Bavetta. This is the kind of thing that happens when studio analysts have to stay up until 2:00 a.m. every night.
Indie developer Shaquille O'Neal is taking to IndieGoGo for his latest project, a sequel to the critically-panned Shaq Fu.
Judging by this clip from last night's episode of Inside the NBA, allegations of Kellen Winslow's alleged public masturbation incident in a Target parking lot did not escape the attention of Chuck and Shaq.
