Shaquille O’Neal once choked out a teammate while a member of the Phoenix Suns. Previously, Grant Hill shared this story in December 2013 and June 2015, but this time it came from Shaq’s own mouth during last Thursday’s Inside the NBA. Canada’s Basketball Ambassador, Steve Nash was on the show and Shaq gleefully remembered the time that Nash got mad at him right before a game because he had choked out Gordan Giricek for talking too much.
Shaq came to the Suns in a trade in February 2008 – midway through Giricek’s final season in the NBA. What a funny story for Giricek’s farewell tour. And make sure to take a close look at Shaq’s impression of a co-worker convulsing on the floor trying to breathe.
