LeBron James and Shaquille O'Neal hold a great relationship. They shared the court during Shaq's brief stint with the Cleveland Cavaliers and have shown nothing but respect for each other throughout the course of their careers.

However, Shaq being the prankster he is, knows no one is safe from internet trolls, not even the Big Diesel or The King. That's why he made us all crack up with his latest post on his Instagram account, posting a fake interaction between him and James.

According to the edit, Shaq asked "How the hell did I lose so much hair lmao", to which LeBron replied, "Cuz for every free throw you missed, one falls out lol".

The post quickly gauged the attention of several celebrities and former NBA players including Snoop Dogg and Carlos Boozer, who couldn't help to laugh it out in the comments. Also, over 650,000 people liked the post in less than 24 hours.

Needless to say, neither Shaq actually posted the comment or LeBron replied that way, but it isn't too far fetched to think it could be a real interaction between the former teammates.

Also, it may actually be partially true, as Shaq missed 5,317 free throws throughout his career, which is slightly less than the 5,935 he knocked down. Obviously, this was arguably the lone flaw in his game and one of the few things that held him back from becoming the greatest player ever.

James, on the other hand, is also losing his hair at a drastically high rate and isn't the most reliable free throw shooter either at 73% and has also missed several clutch freebies over his 17-year career.
