Shaquille O'Neal calls Chris Bosh 'the RuPaul of big men'

Never one to give an uninteresting quote, Phoenix Suns center Shaquille O’Neal likened the Toronto Raptors’ Chris Bosh to America’s most famous drag queen.

In responding to comments that Shaq had benefited from the officials not calling three seconds on him, O’Neal had this to say:

“I heard what Chris Bosh said, and that’s strong words coming from the
RuPaul of big men,” O’Neal said. “I’m going to do the same thing (in
their next meeting) I did before – make him quit. Make ‘em quit and
complain. It’s what I do.”

See, a comment like this can be taken a couple of ways. I’m sure O’Neal was implying that Bosh was soft and effeminate, but — according to Wikipedia — Hunter S. Thompson once described RuPaul as “unshakable and magnanimous.”

So, there’s that.
