A lot of professional basketball players don't know what to do with themselves when they hang up their jersey and call it quits, but not Shaquille O'Neal. He's still got a lot of exciting opportunities and fun shenanigans up his sleeve, and has never been one to let life get boring.
He's already an NBA broadcaster and Podcast host.
But after his recent Instagram post, it looks like one of his options for the future could involve super-gluing a blonde wig to his head and impersonating Carrie Underwood. That could definitely be a reality if Shaq loses to Lavar Ball and his son Lonzo in the father-son pick-up game he just challenged them to.
If lavar ball beats me I'll superglue this wig to my head forever. It's only one BIG BALLER BRAND and that's me THE SHAQ BRAND. Wake up bro. I made more free throws in a game then the Points you averaged mr 2.2 a game. Respect this first balloter #relax #justwatchyoursonplay #shhhhhh #youtoloud #youcanneverbeattheonealboyz
You're probably wondering — would Los Angeles Lakers Legend Shaquille O'Neal ever do that? Is he really that big of a country music / Carrie Underwood fan? The answer is yes. A double yes. If you need proof, look no further than the fact that he's willing to risk wearing a blonde wig for eternity based on the outcome of a pick-up basketball game.
We're “Blown Away."
But admittedly, based on his lip syncing job and fangirl status in the post, we really wouldn't mind Shaq losing. After all, it would only seal his place as Carrie Underwood's No. 1 fan. We'll have to see how Lavar and his son reply, and most importantly, how Carrie Underwood responds. Meanwhile, we're left to wonder — what's bigger? Shaquille O'Neal's shoe size or his love of Carrie Underwood?
