Introducing Shaq’s New Reality TV Show

This is supposedly a “fun way” for the big fella to train for the upcoming season: “NBA star Shaquille O’Neal is getting ready to multitask. The four-time hoops champion, who joins the Cleveland Cavaliers next season, will star in Shaq Vs., an ABC reality series that pits him against top athletes in their own sports. Filming begins Wednesday in Pittsburgh, where Shaq takes on Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger in football. Future hour-long episodes will pit him against Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps, retired boxer Oscar De La Hoya, St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Albert Pujols, tennis pro Serena Williams and beach volleyball Olympians Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh.”

    I can’t wait for Shaq to get injured on this show. And I hope he does it popping his shoulder out of his arm at tennis or something.

    Oh lord, or if the tip of a metal blade breaks and he gets impaled in the leg by an olympic fencer!

    Man Shaq is living his life to the fullest.Why is everybody hating on a legend?He ranks 4th in slams top 50 and is the only player active in top 10.

    Why Shaq his career is over. They should do a show about players who talk bigger than their game. Starring Shaq, Ocho Cinco, Zab Judah, David Beckman and Arod.

    @My Seed, Arod might be the best baseball player ever, and he almost never talks and Kobe Bryant hates you.

    @ The Seed: Who the hell is David Beckman? Never heard of him…..

  • http://dillanleuyahoo.com Holy Baller

    I bet you Shaq won’t be taking on that Usain Bolt dude…..

  • Felix

    There’s no way Shaq beats me at beer pong

  • http://www.broy7.com nate the great

    haha i want to see this!!!!

  • that dude

    Shaq has become such a sideshow, no grace at all.

  • http://hibachi20.blogspot.com Blinguo

    Saving Grace is another of the TNT shows you’re not watching that they still push on you throughout the NBA playoffs on that network. And Sideshow is his teammate. Certainly not as much of a train wreck as the TO actor beach thingy I never watched. Shaq gets handicaps, but that probably won’t help him vs Pujols. Would still like to see it. If he wears the red and white old man stripes swimsuit, like say a Conan O’Brien, during the beach volleyball that will also be worth a watch. & why hasn’t this ever happened before? Shaq’s built for crazy TV shows.

    ey at least he stays in shape over the summer because you know he’s gonna want to win. him swimming is gonna be hilarious though or he has picked out sports he already knows how to do which I think he does. He is a freak of nature

    I wondered when the whole jockey/horse racing thing would re-appear…

    Side Show Shaq.

    oh god. Is this the one with Ben Stein? Bueller? Bueller?

  • Johnny Canuck

    Shaq stole the idea from Steve Nash. Steve called him on it and Shaq ended up paying Nash a fee.

    Nash’s version was way more hilarious too.
