‘Shaq' as he is more commonly known as affectionately amongst his vast array of fans, Shaquille O'Neal is one of the highest achievers in the world of Basketball having won no less than four NBA world championships. He is known especially for his enormous size, marked by his large shoe size of twenty-two.
Shaquille O'Neal has a shoe size of 22 but he is 7 feet and 1 inch tall and weighing 325 pounds, he makes a perfect basketball player. Even many of the world's other basketball players who are also popular are relatively dwarfed by him.
More recently Shaquille O'Neal earned another NBA world championship award with the basketball team, Miami Heat. This happened back in 2006, before he joined up with his current team.
He has earned a number of achievements throughout his extensive career and is currently earning a salary of twenty one million dollars with the Cleveland Cavaliers. He also appeared with his past team, the Los Angeles Lakers, with which she won three NBA world championship awards, at the White House with George Bush.
Shaquille O'Neal has been involved in a number of other industries and businesses outside the world of basketball. In fact, he is even dabbled with the world of flora enforcement and became a reserve officer for the Los Angeles Port Police.
Shaquille O'Neal has also participated in a number of other ventures throughout his career. He is also into rap music and has released five studio albums plus a compilation album. On top of he has appeared in a number of reality television shows and various other programs on the TV. He has also dabbled in the world of martial arts and even got involved in law enforcement. Reportedly, he also asked for a role in the hit film X-Men but this was apparently turned down. His image is also appeared on the covers of numerous basketball video games.
Even with all his accomplishments and accolades there still is some limit to what Superman can do. Case in point, Shaq can't just roll up on The White House unannounced.
According to Shaq's tweets early last week, he was in D.C. and decided to go by the White House to see if he could stop in: “Question, I'm n dc, think if I walk up to the white house, they let me in, I kno the answer, let me kno wht u think, o yea I'm wearin shrts.”
Alas, it wasn't meant to be: “The white house wouldn't let me in, whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy.” Perhaps he was denied entry because Obama was already hosting the defending WNBA champion Detroit Shock at the White House Monday. Or, just maybe, it was the “shrts.”
