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,"…
Inside the NBA devoted the first ten minutes of their program Thursday night to Charles Barkley and Kenny Smith's disagreement on all things race, Ferguson, and Eric Garner. Earlier in the week Chuck went on CNN and various radio programs, playing his "contrarian just telling it like it is" role to a T. Kenny then…
You may know it as the cookie face challenge, the face the cookie challenge, the oreo challenge, or some other name. Whatever you call it, Shaq attempted it on the set of Inside the NBA tonight. It's pretty entertaining watching Shaq weirdly scrunch his face, but here are five food-related challenges I'd really…
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

Indie developer Shaquille O'Neal is taking to IndieGoGo for his latest project, a sequel to the critically-panned Shaq Fu.
What if, instead of marketing to a general demographic, you marketed to a specific individual? What if, instead of waiting for a patron to commission new work, an artist simply designed it based on someone's psychological profile? If an online ad asked for you by name, could you resist?

Legendary basketball coach Phil Jackson made headlines last month when his book, Eleven Rings, was published. He compared Michael Jordan to Kobe Bryant in the book and concluded basically that Jordan was much better. This wasn't a surprise to anyone, but there was a lot of value in reading Jackson, who coached both…
So Shaquille O'Neal tweeted today that he partnered with AriZona Beverage Company to release a soda line. After countless hours of grunt work and delibration peppered by brief, magical moments of marketing genius, Shaq's new soda will be called Soda Shaq.
Reports are swarming that LeBron James will be named the NBA’s MVP for the fourth time in the past five seasons. Somehow this makes Derrick Rose’s 2011 MVP — the only blemish in that stretch for LeBron — seem all the more impressive, if all the more anomalous. Only four other players (Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Bill…
Shaquille O'Neal forgot to turn off his cell phone before going on the air for TNT's pre-game show. He flings it away, dislodging his mic. The wheels come off from there. Watch the whole clip, it ends in hugs.
