I feel like Shaquille O’Neal may have found his soulmate in his girlfriend Nicole “Hoopz” Alexander. Shaq appeared on the Jimmy Kimmel show to plug his memoir, Shaq:Uncut. Kimmel brought up the height disparity between Shaq, at 7’1, 325lbs and Hoopz, 5’2, 125lbs.
“It looks to me like you are taking your daughter to Kindergarden. How does this even work?”. Shaq decided to give him a preview of how things go down in the O’Neal household.
If you haven’t checked out Shaq’s pre-entry into the Inside the NBA family, check out an episode of Open Court which airs on NBA TV and features the TNT crew of Shaq, Charles Barkley, Kenny Smith, Chris Webber, Reggie Miller, Steve Kerr, Steve Smith and Ernie. This round table discussion on various topics related to the NBA has become one of my FAVORITE shows. I hope it sticks around even though the lockout is coming to an end.
