(USA Today)   No, this picture of Shaq standing next to Danica Patrick is not 'shopped. I can tell, as I've seen lots of 'shops in my day and the pixels match and the dithering does to. This is not a 'shop. I can tell, bro. I'm good spotting 'shops   (ftw.usatoday.com ) divider line

Shaq can't throw a free throw to save his life but he's got a good eye for the ladies.

This may be a little controversial, but I'm just going to come right out and say it: Shaq is a very tall person.

Methinks this "Shaquile" person should consider a professional sporting endeavor requiring outlandish physical size. Curling mayhaps?

Yup. I've had one of those moments.

CSS: My ex-husband was 6'1, 375. Most people made him look a giant. One day, we get this guy in the restaurant who is 7'2. Now, I was used to seeing my ex look like a bear compared to other people. What I wasn't prepared for was for my ex to look like Danny Devito standing next to Arnold Schwarzenegger in Twins. It was very bizarre.

Dude on the right is 6'4", 275

Shaq is tall.

My CSB-
I went to Rooms-to-go in Buckhead (Atlanta) a couple months ago and, as we rounded the corner of the parking lot, this very tall black individual in shorts and a t-shirt is coming out of the store. I say to my step mom, "that looks an awful lot like Shaq" and, as he gets closer, "holy shiat, it is shaq".

My face lights up and he smiles. He shook my hand and gave me the half-bro hug deal. I said it was great to meet him and he thanked me and said he was there specifically to meet me that day. He asked who the lovely lady with me was and, when I said step mom, he said "oh, hello hot momma" and gave her a hug.

Awesome guy

I met Rickey Henderson that way, at the Safeway down the street.  I went from "holy shiat, I know who that is, who the heck is it?" to "WOW, MR. HENDERSON, NICE TO MEET YOU!" in seconds.

This was around 2005, 2006 or so, right before spring training started back up, meaning he wasn't on a roster after finishing the prior season with the Yanks or possibly Texas.  a weird detail that is relevant, as I said, "i hope you get signed soon, dude" and he busted up laughing, and said, "I do too, man, I do too!"

/obligatory end of story of me sayihng, "i so very badly wished he'd said, "Rickey do too, Ricky, Rickey hope Rickey get signed, thanks, Ricky" but sadly, it didn't happen.

Some people get how to be a celeb, some don't. Shaq's one who does.

Maybe it's just because it's impossible for him to ever blend in and be anonymous, but he seems to really embrace being Shaq.

Neither am I, but we have to admit Shaq had a horrible work ethic to the point where it wasted his natural gifts and cut his career short. If he had the work ethic of LeBron or the competitive spirit of MJ, Shaq could have finished his career with 8 NBA titles, a half-dozen MVPs. etc...

Shaq burned bridges with everybody in the NBA. Orlando, LA, Miami, Phoenix, Cleveland and Boston.

When hack-a-Shaq became a standard method for beating the Lakers, Rick Barry offered to teach him how to shoot "granny style."  Shaq turned him down because he didn't want to look "silly."

Shaq could have done better with the slightest bit of effort. This is a tragedy for any Basketball Fan.

I... wait... what?  He was a power forward.  That's TINY for a power forward.  I mean, like insanely small.  I honestly thought he was like 6'10" or something (which would be reasonable considering that he looks around 4-5 inches taller than Dwayne Johnson in that picture.  Then again, Shaq is what, 7'1" and looks like 7-8 inches taller than Barkley, so, yeah, gonna have to say it's a 'shop.

I don't think your free throw shooting form matters that much when you can't flick your wrist. IIRC, he broke his wrist twice in a row as a child which prevents him from making the rapid flick motion required to get adequate spin/arc on longer shots. Even an underhanded toss needs some spin to get that shooter's roll. It isn't mentioned in his bio, but I seem to remember the commentators discussing it during one of the Lakers' Finals appearances.

According to reporters, Barkley is probably closer to 6'4" and given Rock's WWE background any physical information on him is closer to fiction than truth.

Barkley's probably 6'6 or 6'7.  His height keeps getting adjusted down to make his story seem bigger.  He's at least as tall as Jordan.
