Shaquille O'Neal holds the title of the most dominant player in NBA history. Few could argue that there is any player in the history of the league that was more dominant than Shaq.
Shaq's frightening combination of size, speed, and strength allowed him to dominate opposing players and get whatever he wanted on the court.
Shaq's title of the most dominant player is pretty much undisputed. But there is another title that he has given himself, one that he seems to be very proud of.
During an episode of 'The Big Podcast,' Shaquille O'Neal claimed that he is the best-looking 7-footer in the world. Shaq rattled off other players from the NBA's past and present who were 7 feet tall, like Patrick Ewing, Dikembe Mutombo, and Rudy Gobert, and said that he was better looking than them.
His co-host mocked him by asking why he walks the way he does, to which Shaq coyly responded it was because he won 4 NBA championships and scored 28,996 points in his career.
“I take pride in saying I’m the best looking 7-footer in the world… Ewing, Dikembe, Gobert, come on, man. I’m the best looking 7-footer in the world. This is how I get em right there. Because I got bad hips from scoring 28,996 points. That’s why I got bad hips. And I got 4 rings…“
Shaq is considered one of the funniest athletes in history, and his comments and explanation about being the best looking 7-footer in history were quite funny. Shaq's sense of humor has allowed him to become one of the most successful athletes to venture into the broadcasting world and helped him gain a lot of endorsements too.
Snoop Dogg recently spoke on a podcast where he said that he was trying to emulate the success Shaquille O'Neal has experienced in the business world. Many people in the world are inspired by Shaq and want to be like him.
