Shaquille O'Neal is one of the funniest personalities in the NBA. O'Neal is naturally charismatic and is very quick-witted. This razor-sharp wit allows O'Neal to tell stories, share experiences, and interact with people in a hilarious way. And one story he recently told may be one of his funniest.
During the latest episode of 'The Big Podcast With Shaq', Shaquille O'Neal revealed his personal experience with zoos. Shaq mentioned that he has been to several zoos in the world. But whenever he goes to the gorilla captivity, they often start reacting like O'Neal is one of them and act confused as to why he is free, and they are not.
“Hey, true story, I promise you. I went to every zoo in the world. I’ve been to every zoo in the world. And every time I go to the gorilla section, they look at me like, ‘Hey man, where your fur at?’ Nah, for real, for real. That’s how they look at me. And then they also look at me like, ‘Hey, what am I doing in here and you out there?’ Then they always go crazy when they see me outside. I promise you. I promise you.”
This is a truly hilarious story from O'Neal. But as he has shown in the past, humor is one of his strong suits, and it isn't just limited to his podcast. Recently, he and the other panelists on Inside The NBA roasted Terence Davis for shimmying before taking a shot and then missing the shot itself.
On top of that, he hilariously recreated some of the most iconic scenes from Christmas movies to celebrate the festive season. And the way he roasted Vlade Divac and the Sacramento Kings after eliminating them in 2002 is truly legendary. There is no denying that O'Neal is one of the funniest people within the NBA community today.
