Shaquille O'Neal is apparently filming a show for ABC in the near future that will pit him against stars of other sports in their own sport. Shaq has the charisma to entertain me for an hour show unlike T.O., who is just annoying. Who doesn't want to see Shaq have a quarterback challenge with Ben Rothlisberger? Or Shaq swimming against 124 time gold medal winner Michael Phelps?
The premise of the show will consist of interviews, arguing what type of handicap O'Neal will recieve, and the actual event itself. Shaq obviously has no chance at winning any of these competitions unless he faces off with some type of professional dancer. Shaq could probably give someone like Michael Flatley (Lord of the Dance) a run for their money especially if Shaq is allowed to bring along fellow teammates Danny Green and Lebron.
This show should be entertaining at the least and if I had to choose between this and the new T.O. reality series coming on VH1, then give me the Big Aristotle any day of the week.
