We all know Shaquille O’Neal for his dominance and strength on the court, but when it comes to women, the NBA Hall of Famer is just as smooth as he thinks. Following his retirement, the former center has found himself very busy between business and ladies.
Shaq’s got game when it comes to females, and we could confirm that when his live TV interview quickly turned into a flirty exchange between himself and Rocsi Diaz, host of ‘Daily Pop’. He was invited to the show to talk about his suit line for big and tall men, but O’Neal took the chance and shot his shot with the guest host.
It all started when Shaq told Diaz ‘call me’, as to what she replied giggling and burying her head in her hands. Then, when Diaz described one of his looks as "sad and pouty" the 4-time NBA champion was quick to flirt with her.
"I could never be sad and pouty with you sitting there," he said.
"She's always in my DM's I just wanted you to know that."
An exasperated Diaz responded: "Oh my god, let's tell the truth", while Shaq claimed, "I can't tell you some of the things she says.
"You know what she says? She says, 'Even though I'm Spanish, you know I like that chocolate'. For real.
"And I tell her, 'Once you go Shaq, you never go back'."
Trying to change the subject, Rocsi asked some quickfire questions, but they were useless with the big man. When asked what is the first thing he does when he wakes up, the Hall of Famer explained how he gently speaks to whichever woman is sharing his bed.
"I say, 'Hey, you alright,'" Shaq quipped before bursting into laughter.
"No the first thing I do is say, 'How're you doing? Who are you interviewing today? Oh, you're interviewing me? Alright, I'll be right behind you'.
"I'm just playing America, I'm just playing."
You can talk about confidence when you see this guy doing the things he did with Diaz. He was great on the court and is certainly smooth with women. We don’t know, but maybe we witnessed the beginning of a new love story in Shaq’s life.
