I don’t know if Shaquille Rashaun O’Neal has ever taught me a single thing about the game of basketball in his role as “studio analyst” for NBA on TNT, and I do not care. Shaq was not hired for his insightful observations or his ability to break down a team’s dribble drive motion offense. He was hired to be goofy, and that’s exactly what he does better than anyone else in sports broadcasting.
Today, as a tribute to the greatest 7’1″ 350-pound rapper the world has ever known, I present to you the 31 best Shaq GIFs you will ever see…at least until the next time he does something insane.
Be careful. If you look at this for too long you will get hypnotized.

13. Groping Shaq
