Shaquille O'Neal is one of the most recognisable sports stars in the entire world. His fame is due not only to his physical dominance on the basketball court - the likes of which fans have never seen in the NBA before or since - but also his larger-than-life personality. He is a media dream, always ready with a soundbite and a seemingly-endless list of nicknames, including (but certainly not limited to) The Diesel, Shaq Fu, and The Big Aristotle. Away from both the court and media room, O'Neal has enjoyed as eventful a life as anyone. With a list of professions to rival Homer Simpson, he has tried his hand at being an actor, recording artist, law enforcement officer, and television presenter - as well as dabbling in real estate and mixed martial arts. It's only fitting that, given his incredible capacity to entertain, Shaq has settled down into a role as an 'Inside The NBA' analyst, offering his general thoughts as well as special comedic features - such as the ever-popular "Shaqtin' A Fool". Although he's still very much present in the public eye, it's never too early to look back on a few of the more obscure facts about one of the best players in NBA history.
