We're going to go out on a limb here and say that Shaquille O'Neal has mastered the art of being a celebrity.

Oh, sure, there are people out there more famous than he is. We'd venture to say that he's not even the most famous basketball player out there. He is, however, seemingly unencumbered by the weights of fame that routinely drag other athletes and celebrities down.

Shaq goes through life like a kind of wandering troubadour, concerned only with being interesting. If he's in Washington, he'll show up at the White House as a kind of social experiment. If he's in a car, he'll put on some kind of wig. He'll challenge David Beckham more than once. If you're part of the Twitter-verse, Shaq will hang out with you.

Even Shaq's ex-teammates like him (with a few possible exceptions). Steve Nash recently told the AP that Shaq will be a great fit in Cleveland. Meanwhile, Shaq is a bit busy fake-choking a gigantic man in spandex. Which is really no surprise.



I guess if you can't make a hook shot anymore, might as well try to infiltrate the White House...


Steve Nash probably thinks Shaq is a good fit anywhere just as long it's not next to him in PHX! Good Luck LBJ!
