If he had to fight, Shaq-fu would take on these NBA players

by Micah Hart

Here is Shaquille O’Neal, calling out five players he’d like to face in the octagon if given the opportunity:

First off, I’d just like to say that there are many reasons why it must be great to be Shaq, but the ability to wear a plain white t-shirt on national television is near the top of the list of things I am jealous of.

Pretty interesting to hear him call out Charles Oakley, who I always considered to be the toughest guy in the NBA in his tenure, and frankly, even if he’s pushing 50, I still wouldn’t want to be getting on his bad side — even as a joke, and even if I were 7-feet 360.

Also, as we all know, Shaq and Charles Barkley famously already scrapped once. My guess is this clip gets played pretty early on in Shaq’s Thursday night career.

      I have my own list: like to see these fights in their prime.
      1) Derrick Coleman
      2) Alonzo Mourning
      3) Yao Ming
      4) Rick Mahorn
      5) Jayson Williams (the big guy from NJ Nets)

      I never thought I would see a list like Shaq’s with Danny Ainge in it. I think Mr. Ainge is so competitive he would be quite the scrapper. Barkley already took Shaq down so he has nothing to prove.

    I second the Bill Laimbeer suggestion that dude was tough as nails
