Shaquille O'Neal loves his public. That is why he chose to issue the news of his retirement directly to them on Wednesday via Twitter.
Shaq is retiring from the NBA after 19 years. Anyone else feeling old, besides Shaq?
Shaq had fun this Halloween. Anyone who has seen the video of him showing off his costume and Halloween persona can attest to this. Viewers of the clip may now be in a catatonic state after seeing the ginormous, heavily tattooed basketball player dressed up and lip syching as his female alter ego, Shaqeeta, but they are undoubtedly comforted in the knowledge that Shaquille O'Neal had a good Halloween. Perhaps what is most disturbing about this clip is the fact that, um, Shaq kind of did an awesome job in his faux singing and dancing performance. I can't explain it.
