Shaquille O'Neal was perhaps one of the best players of the 1990s. Playing for multiple teams, the center perhaps had his most successful stint with the Los Angeles Lakers, where he won three championships in a row.
Playing 19 seasons in the NBA and with multiple accolades to his name, Shaq is a certified legend in the books. While fans surely remember them for his thunderous dunks and his incredible plays on the court, during his time in the NBA, the 7'0" center made his name as one of the funniest players on the court.
Often seen messing with his teammates or else, Shaq was the ultimate clown during his career. He has certainly stayed true to his character off the court as well. Ever since his retirement, O'Neal has been a constant in shows like NBA on TNT. While he has articulated multiple basketball-related topics, he, along with Charles Barkley, is the constant source of laughter for many NBA fans.
Even away from the television, the big man never fails to put a smile on fans' faces. Recently, the 4-time champion put up a hilarious video on his Instagram. Posting a video of Jim Carrey's iconic appearance on the Jimmy Kimmel show, the 'Big Diesel' was lip-syncing Carrey's hilarious lines in the latest video.
“I always say the question is not why are you growing a beard. The question is, why am I growing a beard and still shaving my ba*ls?“
This was certainly a hilarious impression by Shaq. Although he might not be on the court, he has proven himself to be a man of many talents. While O'Neal might impersonate others on his social media, multiple comedians have imitated him in the past.
Be it Kevin Hart or Jay Pharoah, some of these Shaq impressions are hilarious. Regardless, the former Lakers center will continue to be a source of entertainment for us as fans. Which Shaq moment is your favorite?
