ATLANTA—Shaquille O’Neal dedicated an entire five-minute segment of Inside The NBA Wednesday to an in-depth analysis of the size of his own hands, observing on several occasions that the fingers seemed to be growing right before his eyes. “Just look at these huge things—I’m pretty sure they’re bigger than they were a couple seconds ago,” said O’Neal, who carefully surveyed the hands by holding them several inches from his face. “I could pick up a basketball with a thumb and index finger. Wait a second. These aren’t my hands. Somebody switched my normal hands with these gigantic ones when I was getting ready for the show.” After the segment, O’Neal reportedly asked TNT producers for an ax, several rolls of masking tape, and his regular hands.
