Shaq Never Ceases To Amaze

From Men’s Journal via The Arizona Republic:

What’s the most cherished possession you ever lost?

My first credit card. That was in 1992, when I first got drafted. I put my wallet down, and everything disappeared. You know how you get out of college and you’ve got to be professional and do everything right? That just told me I was still irresponsible.

What’s your biggest vice?

Chewing on plastic bottle caps, like off Evian bottles. I just grind on them for hours. By the time I’m done they’re flat. I’ve been doing it since I was a kid. I don’t know why. I broke a tooth once doing it.

What’s the biggest bet you ever made?

“We used to live in Germany because my dad was in the military. I’d already know the score of the Super Bowl before it was shown there. So I’d go to school and bet all the kids – dollars, quarters, lunches and win every time. I won, like, 500 bucks. They never caught on.”

What would you do with a time machine?

“Go to the cloning era, clone myself 20 times, and put myself in America as 20 different people. One Shaq would be a banker. One Shaq would be a sheriff. One Shaq would be a race car driver. One Shaq would be a prince. One Shaq would be Spanish. We’d all be here at the same time, and every once in a while I’d meet myself.”

    LOL! I never knew I had so much in common with Shaq. I do the SAME THING to plastic bottle caps.

    As for the cloning thing, I would clone myself 5 times and make my own basketball team.

    dusty,

    I touched on Shaq a few weeks ago:

    His per 48 minute numbers are impressive. And he’s shooting a very high percentage again. But he has a tendency of starting off hot and disappearing down the stretch. Still, he definitely deserves to be selected to the All-Star team.
