Videos: Shaq Makes an Appearance on Conan

The big man chops it up with the late night show host.

Always good for an entertaining interview, Shaq dropped by a miniaturized Conan set last night to chat with the late night show host. Shaq talks about being too big for everyday life, working toward his doctorate and being called “Dr. O’Neal.”

In part two of the segment, Shaq gives Conan some coaching advice and explains the philosophy behind the “rah” defensive scheme. Shaq also talkas about his job as an analyst and how the roles have reversed compared to his playing days.

    so great at interviews yet he absolutely bleaping stinks on TNT…

    shaq was never known for his basketball iq. also i think the fact that he’s so closely removed from the game effects his judgement. ideally he should have stayed back for a couple of years before taking on an analyst role so it’s only natural that he’s overtly sensitive about his legacy at this stage of his life.

    i believe all this makes him ill suited for the role. but at the same time, tnt has him on the show as a color commentator so we should take it at it’s face value.

    really? have you seen the level of humour on indian tv? or japan/china? you’d be shocked. it’s a talk show not stand up. i think america does all right in that format.

    I was never a big fan of Dr. O’neal or MR. Barkley UNTIL seeing them on Insise the NBA. Probably that was because they never played for my team! But I do like the chemistry between all of the hosts and make it a point to watch after each game.
