shaq.jpgShaq, always the entertainer, has a new reality show set for August 18 on ABC that pits him against other top athletes in their own sports. According to the AZ Central,

Filming begins Wednesday in Pittsburgh, where Shaq takes on Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger in football. Future hourlong episodes will pit him against Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps, retired boxer Oscar De La Hoya, St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Albert Pujols, tennis pro Serena Williams and beach volleyball Olympians Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh


Shaq has played with some of the best players of our generation.

1- Prime Penny Hardaway
2- Kobe Bryant
3- Dwanye Wade
4- Steve Nash
5- Lebron James

You would think with these types of wing men he should have more than four titles but I digress. Lets examine each relationship and then I will tell you why you should feel uneasy if you are a Cavs fan.

For my lifetime I'm going to go from 1982 to now. So this eliminates Wilt, Kareem, Oscar, Russell and those players I never really saw at all or enough of to add to my list. Also others who haven't played long enough or sustained long enough like Chris Paul and D. Wade who may be on this list soon.

In reverse order:

10 - Lebron James - There has not been a more physically gifted player. Of all the players that have come out of high school he was clearly the most ready. And unlike the others he came right in and made a difference. His game right now is based on athleticism and his knowledge of the game. And with that he already has a league MVP and arguably is the best player in the league. Once he develops a jump shot and or a reliable post up game he has the ability to rise to the top of this list.

What's the secret to Shaq being skinny? Apparently, "Enlyten." Enlyten seems to be a multi-level marketing company that Shaq is now the spokesperson for, and apparently has claimed it to be the reason for him being so skinny, as he calls, the "Shaqlyte" diet. No comment. But none the less, Shaq is now the new spokesperson for this company that sells an interesting health and wellness product, the enlyten strip, a health strip. Very very interesting.

I don't know the truth to this, but Shaq is pushing these strips and his new Shaqlyte diet, so he can get ready for a Calvin Klein shoot. Even more interesting. With that said, let's take a look at a video of Shaq fighting off his diet.

Goodness, it feels like the playoffs have been going on for months. Thirteen days to be exact. But wow, some of these series just kept going. In a perfect world, every series would have been a best-of-five, but the Bulls-Celtics series would be a best-of-seventeen. And I think we'd still be going into over-time every night.

The first round is ALMOST done, but we've already seen some things that have opened some eyes. The Rockets finally won a series! the 76ers have some kick to them. The Hornets are a disgrace to basketball, and quit on a good man. Byron Scott will be fired this summer because nobody on that team listens to him. Lebron is a beast. The Detroit Pistons are desolate (at least they have hockey). Tim Duncan lost his first ever first round series. Jerry Sloan might finally say goodbye to the NBA. Jason Kidd in Dallas worked out after-all. The Nuggets are scary. Brandon Roy is a top five guard in the NBA. Dwayne Wade is a G. So is Ray Allen. Oh, and Rondo was the first player to drop 19 assists and no turnovers since Norm Nixon...and they still lost. And the list goes on.

But let's take a look at some pretty interesting themes revolving the first round of the NBA Playoffs.

I guess since the Suns have nothing better to do seeing as how they aren't in the playoffs they've resorted to making web films such as these. I can honestly say the Suns these past few weeks between their pranks, pregame rituals, and now this they have become one of the more entertaining teams in the league. Too bad that's not enough to save Steve Kerr in the end for dismantling the Suns.

The question begs while the Suns are clowning around did anyone actually care about winning games this season?

Shaq is a funny guy, but maybe it is time for him to take his comedy act on the road again.

There are 30 teams in the NBA, but every year, there are only a number of teams that are considered playoff teams, and of those 16-18 playoff teams, there are only a few teams that are considered contenders. And in all honesty, it seems like that number is too small. I don't care how die-hard of a Detroit, Philadelphia, Chicago or Dallas fan you are...your team is not going to make the NBA Finals. If you're lucky, these teams might make a little bit of noise, but that's about it.

For teams in building mode like Charlotte, Oklahoma City, Memphis and Minnesota, they understand they aren't at that level yet, and only aspire to reach that level. Minnesota, you may remember was at that level for about a year and a half.

An avid watcher of the NBA for over a decade, I have seen amazing teams come and go, dynasties built and dismantled and through it all, all these teams go through a window... and typically, it's not very big. And with the season officially over, and playoffs starting this weekend...allow me to explain.


Grant Hill called Shaq the 50 Cent of the NBA. I must agree because there is no one in the NBA who gives a better quote than Shaq. It took me two days to compile this list of Shaquille O'Neal Quotes and videos. So take a seat and relax and be prepared to literally "laugh out loud".

Do me a favor if you follow Shaq on Twitter: let him know that he has bestowed the title of 50 Cent of the NBA by BlackSportsOnline.

And follow me as well: http:/

You have to start out with a classic:


Recent Shaq Quotes:

On Greg Oden:

"I'm a Shogun. You can't ask me about a low level Ninja. I still have to worry about Yao Ming, Dwight Howard."

On Lebron James PreGame Camera Shoot via Twitter:

"Uh oh people lebron didn't make up the camera skit my main man chad johnson did look stop it at 55 seconds"

After hearing that Stan Van Gundy complained about Shaq flopping on a play. Shaq clearly was not amused:

"I heard his comment. Flopping to me is doing it more than one time, and I realized when I tried to take the charge, as I went down, I realized that that play reminded me of his whole coaching career. And one thing I really despise is a frontrunner, so I know for a fact that he's a master of panic, and when it gets time for his team to go in the postseason and do certain things, he will let them down because of his panic. I've been there before, I've played for him."

"Flopping is playing like that your whole career. I was trying to take the charge, trying to get a call. It probably was a flop, but flopping is the wrong use of words. Flopping would describe his coaching. I'm not going to just sit abound and let nobodies take shots at me, and he is a nobody to me. And if he thinks he can get in a little press conference and take shots at me like I'm not going to [give] something back, he's got another thing coming."

"I said I flopped, but flopping is falling and crying and complaining to the ref. I tried to take a charge. The rules say when a guy comes into your chest and you fall, that's an offensive foul, and that's all I tried to do. I fell, didn't complain, he made a great move, spun and dunked it, but flopping is the wrong choice of words. So that's all I've got to say about that, but again, I despise frontrunners, I despise them. And that's what he is to me."

"Now I see why everybody who plays for him doesn't like him."

Referring to Alex Rodriguez and his steroids scandal:

"He's an honest man. He admitted it, so hopefully people will forgive him. But I really can't elaborate on something I know nothing about....That's not our thing in the NBA. Every other sport has drug testing and all that. But A-Rod is still a good guy and an honest man so hopefully he will be forgiven."

After "sealing off" his locker area with yellow crime tape and a toy police cruiser, Shaq was asked, 12 inches away, what the yellow tape was for. Shaq evidently applied the tape himself, but the Big Crime Fighter wasn't willing to divulge the story behind it.

"What yellow tape?" he said, standing about 12 inches from the yellow tape at his back, which someone pointed out. "I'm color blind; I don't see any of that."

When asked how the Miami crowd might receive him at American Airlines Arena:

"Everything is done out of respect, whether it's a cheer or a boo."

"I'm not going to go home and drink rat urine."

We all know Shaq is a clown. We love it. Earlier this week, we talked about Lebron's pre-game antics of snapping team photos...Shaq, the Twitter-king, original Superman, the newest member of the Jabbawockeez, and so much more... has something else for Bron Bron. Shaq was quoted, calling Lebron's camera gig "weak." So Shaq pulled his bag of tricks out, and now goes bowling pre-game.

Furthermore, Shaq has challenged Lebron.

"Everybody always talks about LeBron's weak intro, so I challenge LeBron to intros," Shaq said, post-game. "Alright? So he does his little camera thing, we did our bowling thing, we'll let the people decide. If he changes his intro, then I'm going to change my intro."

Videos after the jump. You guys decide...which one is better?

Memo to Dwight Howard:

COME ON MAN!!!!!!!

I like Dwight Howard I think he is the new "Shaq Twitterezzy" (you can follow me and Shaq on Twitter, but sometimes you should just keep some things to yourself.

I like Beyonce as much as anyone else (I am hypnotized by the "Diva" Video), but I can tell you from personal experience that females don't look to kindly on men dancing to "Single Ladies".
