Even though hes pushing 37 years old, Shaquille ONeal is still one of the NBAs most visible players. And though the leagues All-Star Weekend festivities are crackling all over town this weekend, you know Shaq can be found at the, ahem, center of it all . . . but not necessarily in the way you think.
You see, we knew about Shaqs forays into the worlds of acting, music, and law enforcement. But we had no clue about his attempts at stand-up comedy (his trips to the free-throw line notwithstanding). Yes, besides appearing in his 15th All-Star game on Sunday, ONeal can be found onstage in an unlikely pairing with chapeaud comedian Cedric the Entertainer for Shaq & Cedric the Entertainers All-Star Comedy Jam.
