Shaq calls out LeBron for 'weak' intro

Shaquille O'Neal might not be able to beat LeBron James on the court anymore. But he's not afraid to challenge him when it comes to pregame choreography.




Recently, the Cleveland Cavaliers have been having some fun during starting lineup introductions, with James pretending to hold a camera and take a picture of his teammates, who pose in front of their superstar.
Shaq, calling that intro "weak," decided to create his own skit before the Phoenix Suns played the Washington Wizards on Saturday.
Standing about 20 feet from six of his teammates, who were lined up in triangle formation, he pretended to roll a bowling ball toward them. Five fell immediately and the player in the middle wobbled before tumbling to the ground.
"Everybody always talks about LeBron's weak intro, so I challenge LeBron to intros," O'Neal said. "Alright? So he does his little camera thing, we did our bowling thing, we'll let the people decide. If he changes his intro, then I'm going to change my intro."
If LeBron takes the challenge, Shaq says he'll have no problem breaking out new material.
"I've got 100 million intros in my abdullah oblongata," O'Neal said.

How does Shaq have room for 100 million intros in his abdullah oblongata with all the undigested beef he has in there!

I think it's fun. We may not like them because they play for other teams but they have great personalities.

I agree these intro skits are boring and useless.

the guys are just having fun, not hurting anyone, and still destroying the league nightly. to me it's an indication of how loose and tight-knit they are, and that kind of camaraderie can often transfer to the court.

I liked the one shaq did where his teammates propped him up, and he did the superman flight thingy. I think the spurs should go old school and do the remember the titans intro dance.

Oh my goodness. I can just hear Shaq now, mumbling in the locker room before the game: What do you mean, you don't want to be a bowling pin? Robin Lopez, you punk.

Reminds me of endzone celebrations in the NFL.

Shaq's bowling idea is better (I hate to give Shaq any credit, but I gotta call it like I see it), but the execution is lacking. The team needs more practice to get the timing down to make it look right. They'll have plenty of time come April!

Both were funny, but i think Shaq choreography was better in the locker room than the court one.

And i actually like both players.

Won´t mind shaq finishing his career as a Spur.

This game is meant to be fun and it's entertainment. What's wrong w/ what they are doing?

I like Shaq's antics and LeBron. They are grown men having a great time in their profession.

Agree with Ro. World's serious enough as it is. It's okay to be silly once in a while.
