Revelations From Shaq’s New Book

Shaquille O'Neal's frank and unflinching autobiography Shaq Uncut: My Story hits store shelves this week. Though Shaq's candid thoughts are too numerous to list here, readers will find these the most notable:

  • Grew 7 feet of his 7-foot-1-inch frame during his junior year of high school
  • Showed local news reporters how large his shoes were more than 15,000 times during his first year in the NBA
  • Took a year off from basketball and lived as a genie to prepare for his role in Kazaam
  • Spent first three years writing book from Luke Walton's point of view before deciding to make just one chapter that way
  • Has released four rap albums, plus more than 40 country albums under the name Logan Quantrill
  • Though Shaq was sworn in as a cop in Miami, his original goal was to be a horse-cop
  • Revealed that, in 2009, he actually played for the Cavaliers
  • Seriously considered retiring in 2010 before realizing he could stand to lose a few more dignities
  • Had a fierce rivalry with Andre Agassi, although there was no practical way to express or demonstrate this
