No one in sports history (forget the NBA) has ever had as much fun during their career as O’Neal has. His latest antics, via the Express-News: “O’Neal made his conducting debut Monday night, leading the Pops and the Tanglewood Festival Chorus in the Christmas classic ‘Sleigh Ride’ at Boston’s Symphony Hall. He followed that with The Jackson Five’s ‘Can You Feel It?’ and closed with Queen’s ‘We Are the Champions.’ His finale, he joked, is one he hopes to hear a lot in Boston next June. ‘I have a whole new respect for conductors and the work they do every day,’ O’Neal told reporters. ‘My arms are shot right now.'”
