That's not an even bigger, larger-than-life Shaquille O'Neal you see joining Conan O'Brien and Andy Richter on the set of the late night show early Wednesday morning— it was just that the furniture was miniaturized for a "Honey, I Shrunk the Set" episode.
The 7-foot-1 O'Neal made the already tiny furniture look like something from Barbi's Malibu House as he took a seat on the little couch next to his hosts.
Shaq told the audience that he is working on another title— Dr. O'Neal— and will retire the name Shaq once he gets his doctorate. He wants be known as Dr. O'Neal to everyone except children when he earns that distinction.
The former-NBA star— and current television analyst— also explained his past distain for talking heads in sports now that he is one of them. Shaq said he never disliked all studio analysts— only the critics who dumped on him and never played basketball— especially "most of the new ones that started in the last five years."
