Shaquille O'Neal's feet were the topic of much discussion on Inside the NBA on Thursday night, for better or worse. The big man popped this gnarly-looking appendage out during halftime of the Cavaliers’ blowout victory and immediately overshadowed the basketball being played in Boston.
It takes a big man to be comfortable showing the wear and tear caused by a 20-year NBA career and Shaq is, truly, one of the biggest men.
Nineties kids will remember that Sports Illustrated for Kids did extensive reporting on O’Neal’s Size-22 foot when he was in the early stages of his career. Part of their coverage included a life-size picture of his shoe and the note it could hold four cans of soda.
I do not think kids need a print follow-up story on what that foot looks like now. It is only suitable for the internet.
