After the Cleveland Cavaliers’ comeback win over the Boston Celtics, the TNT NBA crew of Shaquille O’Neal, Charles Barkley, Ernie Johnson, and Kenny Smith were on hand to offer up some post-game insights. Ostensibly.
While Shaquille O’Neal and Paul “Big Show” Wight were rumored to compete against one another in next month’s Wrestlemania, it now sounds like it’s not going to happen. On his most recent podcast episode, Shaq blamed WWE for the match not taking place and said it wasn’t his fault. Big Show had a very different take, in …
And thus ends one of the more perplexing NBA feuds, not with a verbal blowup or a throwing of the hands, but with the instigator being called off by his mommy.
Shaquille O’Neal and Warriors center JaVale McGee, who are perpetually beefing over McGee’s appearances on Shaqtin’ A Fool, spent the wee hours of the morning arguing on Twitter. This afternoon, the more prominent members of the Warriors came to McGee’s defense, while the team reportedly complained to Turner Sports…
Human lowlight reel JaVale McGee and Shaq have had beef for a while now. Shaq loves to make fun of the silly stuff McGee (who, it should also be said, is having a really good season with the Warriors) regularly does on the court. McGee, in contrast, hates it. Last night, the beef reached all new, multi-media heights.
Last night’s edition of Inside The NBA featured a lengthy segment on the great LeBron-Barkley beef of 2017. You don’t need to watch the whole thing—unless you want to see Charles Barkley deploy the “I’m not mad, this is actually funny to me” defense unironically, which, now that I think about it, is a pretty good…
Warriors center JaVale McGee and Shaquille O’Neal have a unique relationship, in that Shaq makes fun of McGee on TV, and McGee gets angry at him.
Today the Miami Heat announced that they will be retiring Shaquille O’Neal’s jersey. This would be the most unspectacular bit of news except that the game in which the Heat have chosen to hoist Shaq’s jersey to the rafters can’t possibly have been an accident:
This is Shareef O’Neal, Shaq’s big-as-hell son. He’s a high school sophomore, but he’s already 6-foot-9 and can dunk over his massive father. Look at this dang dunk:
Dwight Howard is in the market for a new agent, after firing agent Dan Fegan in February. According to a report from Shams Charania, Howard is hiring an agent who doesn’t represent any current NBA players. So why’d Howard leave one of the more powerful agents in the game for somebody barely even in it? For the most…
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.
The Los Angeles Lakers announced that they will be building a statue to honor Shaquille O’Neal, and it will be unveiled outside of their home arena some time during the 2016-2017 season. All we have to go on now is an artist’s rendering, but it’s a bad-ass looking concept:
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.
Kobe Bryant has been feisty on Twitter lately, first deploying a meme in defense of Russell Westbrook, and now chastising the NBA media for building false narratives:
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,"…
