Shaquille O’Neal’s ‘No Holds Barred’ Book in the Works

Shaq has never held back during interviews about League issues; now that he has the platform of a book, there’s no telling what kind of hilarity he’ll unleash onto the literary world. WEEI reports: “What has it been like for O’Neal to work with Jackie MacMullan on a book? ‘She knew things that I’d forgotten about. We were sitting at the house talking — we meet twice a week for three hours. She asks me questions, and I ‘ve got to dig in my old Shaqodex. I’m like, ‘That’s 13 years ago.’ It should be a very exciting book — no holds barred. ‘Tell-all’ wouldn’t be the correct term. ‘Truthful’ would be the better term.’”

    is Shaunie guest-writing?

  • Heals

    My guess it’s not about how to recover from injuries quickly. Get healthy big fella cause 1825 will help sell a few more copies…

  • 1982

    I read Shaq’s first book in High School. Hope this is better.

    I enjoyed “Loose Balls”, written by Jayson Williams (pre murder trial)

    ^^^ Loose Balls was hilarious! I still remember some of the stuff in that book – like Barkley riding an excerise bike and eating donuts while telling his teammates to practice harder. LOL

    Haha M Cho, thats one of the main things I remember too, or when Keith Van Horn had a off game, so Jayson took him to the bar and got him $#itfaced, then the next evening he had a huge game because he played “mean”..

    Wouldn’t a more appropriate title be “How To Burn Bridges”?

  • http://www.double-technical.blogspot.com Zee!

    In an early excerpt, Shaq talks about needing extra security when he moved to Miami to keep Eboy honest to his restraining order…..

    Cool story, bro.

  • c.a

    I want him to call it the Sha-Qu’ran, just to see if the crazies in the middle east can make a 7-foot tall, 300 pound effigy

    Shaq to the future??

  • hoodsnake

    Only way it will sell is if he throws all kinds of body fluid Kobe’s way
