How do you train to beat Shaquille O’Neil? Juice boxes and naps. Two-year-old internet phenom Titus Ashby (who has several popular YouTubes showing him nailing shots over and over in pint-sized basketball hoops) took on the former NBA star in a shootout on Jimmy Kimmel’s pre-NBA Finals special Thursday night. Titus had a slow start but picked up speed and ended up sinking eight. Once Shaq stepped up, it was immediately clear that the days of Hack-a Shaq were back.
Yes, Shaq has always been haunted by his horrible free throw percentage. Yes, Shaq has been out of the game for a little while. But…zero, zilch, nada, not one shot could go in? Now THAT is embarrassing!
