Shaquille O’Neal dances like no one is watching

SHARE Shaquille O’Neal dances like no one is watching

Say what you want about the actual game, Derrick Rose’s performance in the skills competition, that stupid trophy Kevin Durant won in H-O-R-S-E or Kryptonate’s slam dunks. The highlight of the NBA’s All-Star weekend was Shaquille O’Neal’s dance moves.

The future Hall of Famer and star of the unforgettable 1996 movie “Kazaam” treated the Phoenix crowd and millions of defensive-indifferent fans at home with this kinetic masterpiece.

There are probably so many thoughts racing around your mind after viewing that, but let’s try to pull it together and discuss how we feel about what we just saw.

First off, you forget just how big O’Neal is until you put him next to normal-sized people. Seriously, he’s very large. That’s what makes his smooth moves even more impressive. Secondly, that was pretty awesome. It looked like he’d been practicing that from months (insert free throw joke here).

The Sun-Times’ John Jackson was on hand for the performance and it sounds like he was pretty impressed. Then again, who wouldn’t be?

The dance group he performed with is called the JabbaWockeeZ and they wear those white masks while breaking it down on stage. Unlike Shaq’s very forgettable genie pants in the aforementioned “Kazaam,” this was an amazing fashion choice.

In fact, I propose people start wearing more masks in social situations. That’s not too creepy is it? Who’s with me? Anyone?

Moving on…

Shaq’s former teammate Kobe Bryant assessed the perfomance as if he were a grade school teacher.

On the dance floor, it was an ‘A-plus,’ Bryant said. That size moving and all that.

High praise for a guy whose relationship with O’Neal has been shaky at best. So do you agree with Kobe? What’d you think of Shaq’s dance? And more importantly, where can I get one of those masks?

It’s the Shaq show (Sun-Times)
